To be completed by the customer
Describe capital improvement to be performed:

- I will be required to pay the contractor the appropriate sales tax on tangible personal property (and any associated services) when the property installed by the contractor does not become a permanent part of the real property; and
- I will be subject to civil or criminal penalties (or both) under the Tax Law if I issue a false or fraudulent certificate.
