6. I have read and understand the following: Note: Auto body repair and paint shops are generally considered consumers of the items listed below regardless of the manner in which they bill their customers for repairs and painting. Thus, this certificate generally may not be used to purchase these items. If a person does, in fact, resell any of the following items prior to use, the person may take a deduction on his or her sales and use tax return to offset the amount paid as tax (the deduction is taken under "Taxpaid purchases resold"). If, however, a person is purchasing one of these items exclusively for resale in the form of tangible personal property and not for consumption during repairs, painting, or the like, this certificate may be used to purchase such item by listing it under "Other" above.

7. I have read and understanding the following: For Your Information: A person may be guilty of a misdemeanor under Revenue and Taxation Code section 6094.5 if the purchaser knows at the time of purchase that he or she will not resell the purchased item prior to any use (other than retention, demonstration, or display while holding it for resale) and he or she furnishes a resale certificate to avoid payment to the seller of an amount as tax. Additionally, a person misusing a resale certificate for personal gain or to evade the payment of tax is liable, for each purchase, for the tax that would have been due, plus a penalty of 10 percent of the tax or $500, whichever is more.
