Answer: An Interstate Land sale is defined as the advertising and sale in this State of property in another state.  "Subdivision" means any improved or unimproved land or tract of land located outside this state which is divided or proposed to be divided into five (5) or more lots, parcels, units, including time-share units, or interests for the purpose of disposition, at any time as part of a common promotional plan.  Any land which is under common ownership or which is controlled by a single developer or a group of developers acting in concert, is contiguous in area, and is designated or advertised as a common unit or known by a common name, shall be resumed, without regard to the number of lots, parcels, units or interests covered by each individual offering, to be part of a common promotional plan.
