  Are sales of warranty contracts for roofs taxable?
  Q: Are sales of warranty contracts for roofs taxable?

A: The sale of a warranty contract that covers materials and/or labor to service a roof is not taxable, regardless of whether the warranty contract covers new construction, existing residential property, or existing commercial, industrial or income-producing real property. If sold with the installation of a roof, the price for the roof and for the warranty contract must be separately stated, and the price of the warranty must be reasonable and in line with industry-standard pricing.
