House Roll Call 345 on
2013 Senate Bill 89: Vehicle trade-in “sales tax on the difference” only

To exempt from sales tax the value of a trade-in when buying a new motor vehicle, titled watercraft or recreational vehicle, but phase this tax break in over 24 years. The phase-in would be suspended if the federal health care law's ("Obamacare") Medicaid expansion (authorized by House Bill 4714) is rescinded, but legal experts are divided over whether this would be allowed.
The buyer would only pay sales tax on the difference between the value of the trade-in and the purchase price of the new car. Initially, the tax break would only apply to $2,000 of the price difference, and this would increase $500 per year. When fully implemented the tax break's value would reach $226 million (in 2013 dollars).
