A detailed proof of hard-scattering factorization is given with the inclusion of heavy quark masses. Although the proof is explicitly given for deep-inelastic scattering, the methods apply more generally. The power-suppressed corrections to the factorization formula are uniformly suppressed by a power of (Formula presented) independently of the size of heavy quark masses, (Formula presented) relative to (Formula presented).
