  • taxable goods and services bought or imported to make supplies of exempt goods and services;
  • membership fees or dues to any club whose main purpose is to provide recreation, dining, or sporting facilities (including fitness clubs, golf clubs, and hunting and fishing clubs), unless you acquire the memberships to resell in the course of your business;
  • goods or services you bought or imported for your personal use, consumption, or enjoyment; and
