Oklahoma recently ruled that photocopying medical records is taxable.

The taxpayer operates photocopy machines to create copies of customer supplied medical records. The taxpayer sends the photocopied medical records to various locations.

In Oklahoma, photocopying services are a taxable sale of tangible personal property.

Separately stated postage charges to mail records are not taxable. Separately stated handling charges are not taxable if they are part of the transportation cost related to mailing the records to the customer. However, handling charges are taxable when they are an attempt to recover expenses.

A photocopier can make exempt purchases of items (e.g., paper) that become ingredients or component parts of the finished product. A photocopier is not a manufacturer, so it is not allowed to make exempt purchases of equipment and supplies under the manufacturing exemption.
