Administrative Pronouncements And Rulings Relating To Amusement And Recreation Services And Health Club Services Obsolete By Repeal Of Tax On Such Services
PURPOSE: The purpose of this Announcement is to identify administrative pronouncements and rulings that, while valid when issued, should no longer be relied upon. The Department will declare a pronouncement or ruling to be "obsolete" where, because of changes in the law on which a pronouncement or ruling was based, the pronouncement or ruling is no longer considered authoritative and should not be relied upon for future transactions or future taxable periods. By declaring a pronouncement or ruling to be obsolete, the Department intends to eliminate unnecessary research and to reduce the possibility of erroneous decisions by taxpayers and tax practitioners. The fact that a pronouncement or ruling is "obsolete" does not affect its past validity or its application to past transactions or past taxable periods.
