32consisting of goods, wares, merchandise, and other items
33designated by statute, sold at retail in the state to consumers
34or users, except as otherwise provided by Code chapter 423.
35Generally, by operation of law, a sale subject to the sales

2of amounts required by statute, if applicable, one-sixth of
3the remaining state sales tax revenue from the 6 percent tax

9tax rate of 6 percent is reduced to 5 percent on January 1,
