Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 117 - Under current law, if property is traded in on a purchase, purchasers pay sales or use tax only on the excess, if any, of the purchase price of the new item less any trade-in allowance and any applicable rebates.

This act authorizes the reduction in the purchase price of an article if the trade-in has been subject to the imposition of sales or use tax or has been exempted or excluded from such tax. The act specifies that a purchaser of a motor vehicle, trailer, boat or outboard motor is only allowed a credit for the trade-in of a similar item.

The act is similar to SB 489 (1998).
