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.
