Sales tax on used sleds

5 posts in this topic

There is a bill being discussed in the legislature right now regarding charging sales tax on used sleds. Contact you legislator NOW so this doesn't happen. The bill is Article 10 of HF 2323

HF 2323 - the Omnibus Tax Bill - is in conference committee (House members – Lenczewski, Marquart, Koenen, Loeffler, Seifert; Senate members – Bakk, Skoe, Dibble, Moua, Johnson). This is the bill that was discussed at the April meeting. The MnUSA board voted to oppose Article 10 which requires sales tax be paid on the sale of a snowmobile between individuals. The same provisions as a new registration will apply to a reregistration . If you haven’t already done so, please let your legislators know our/your position on the bill. The language of the provision relating to the new tax on snowmobiles is as follows:

158.8 ARTICLE 10 - SALES AND USE TAX

158.9 Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2008, section 84.82, subdivision 10, is amended to read:

158.10 Subd. 10. Proof of sales tax payment. (a) A person applying for initial registration

158.11of a snowmobile, or applying for reregistration for the first time after a change of

158.12ownership under subdivision 1, must provide a snowmobile purchaser's certificate,

158.13showing a complete description of the snowmobile, the seller's name and address, the full

158.14purchase price of the snowmobile, and the trade-in allowance, if any. The certificate must

158.15include information showing either (1) that the sales and use tax under chapter 297A was

158.16paid or (2) the purchase was exempt from tax under chapter 297A. The commissioner of

158.17public safety, in consultation with the commissioner and the commissioner of revenue,

158.18shall prescribe the form of the certificate.

158.19 (B) The certificate is not required if the applicant provides a receipt, invoice, or other

158.20document that shows the snowmobile was purchased from a retailer maintaining a place of

158.21business in this state as defined in section 297A.66, subdivision 1.

158.22 © If the applicant cannot meet the provisions in either paragraph (a) or (B), the

158.23applicant must provide a receipt, invoice, or other document from the previous owner

158.24certifying the amount paid for the snowmobile, whether in money or other consideration,

158.25and remit the applicable use tax along with the registration fee.

158.26EFFECTIVE DATE.This section is effective for sales and purchases made after

158.27June 30, 2009..

It will pass for sure. This state would tax you on the way into and out of the bathroom if they could figure out a way.

This is the response I got from my legislators.

I am unaware of those provisions. I will check to see if this bill is moving on its own or a part of the conference committee on taxes. If the bill is moving on its own, I will be sure to pay close attention should a Senate companion arrive on the Senate floor. I can support your position and I appreciate your input and concerns.

Sincerely,

Senator Kevin L. Dahle

Thanks, for voicing your concern about the sales tax. There have been many tax and revenue proposals we don't know what the final proposal will be, nor do we know if will have a chance to vote on individual proposals. I will watch for this and appreciate your contacting me and am supportive.

- Rep. Bly

    • The name of the lake is long. It's between hawick and new London off hwy 23. East of Willmar. It's pretty clear water so your best bet  with eyes is early or late. Actually catch more eyes by accident fishin panfish.
    •   Not sure how the wife will like it, but it's kind of fun roughing it.  I know the area is pretty good for Bear's and Wolves!  And we do get a few Deer once in a while. The nice thing about being so far in, is the bait piles you can make! 
    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
