Texas medical waste processing machine taxable.

A trailer-mounted machine used to grind and sterilize biohazard medical waste from medical facilities was subject to sales tax because of its categorization as moveable specialized equipment. Charges to grind and sterilize the waste were exempt from taxation. (Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Letter No. 200310179L, decided October 21, 2003)
