Tax 11.985(1)(b)2.a.a. A product that is provided free of charge to the consumer in conjunction with the required purchase of another product, if the sales price of the other product does not vary depending on whether the product provided free of charge is included in the transaction.

Tax 11.985(1)(c)1.a. a.

Tax 11.985(1)(c)1.b. b. A price for which the sales price varies or is negotiable based on the purchaser's selection of the products included in the transaction even if the seller only provides one price on its invoice to the purchaser.
Tax 11.985 Note Example: Retailer C enters into a contract with Customer D to provide various information technology services. Customer D selects the information technology services it wants from Retailer C. Through negotiation, Retailer C and Customer D agree on a price based on the services selected and Retailer C bills Customer D one price for all of the services, some of which are taxable and some of which are not taxable. Although the invoice from Retailer C to Customer D only contains one price for all of the services, since the price was based on the products selected by Customer D, the price is not “one nonitemized price."
Tax 11.985(1)(c)1.c. c. A single price that is equal to the total of the individually priced or itemized products contained in the supporting sales related documentation such as a catalog, price list, or service agreement.

If a transaction includes a bundle of products that are sold for one nonitemized price and also one or more additional products that were individually priced or itemized from the bundled products in a catalog or price list, but the invoice provided to the purchaser only included one price, the additional products that were individually priced in the catalog or price list are not part of the bundled transaction.
Tax 11.985(1)(c)3. 3. If the products in a transaction are not sold for one nonitemized price as provided in subds. 1. and 2., and the total sales price of the transaction is further discounted, without itemizing the discount for each product, this will not cause the transaction to now be characterized as a bundled transaction.

Tax 11.985(1)(d) (d) “Product" includes tangible personal property, and items, property, and goods under s. 77.52 (1) (b), (c), and (d), Stats., and services. For purposes of this rule, “product" does not include real property or services to real property.

Tax 11.985(2)(b)1.1. At the retailer's option, if the retailer can identify, by reasonable and verifiable standards from the retailer's books and records that are kept in the ordinary course of its business for other purposes, including purposes unrelated to taxes, the portion of the price that is attributable to products that are not subject to the tax imposed under this subchapter, that portion of the sales price is not taxable.
