Sales and Use Tax Annotations
125.0000 AUTOMOBILE DEALERS AND SALESMEN—Regulation 1566
125.0050 Sales of a Vehicle with Foreign Delivery. Under a foreign auto manufacturer's Tourist Order Sales Program, the dealers act within the terms of the Tourist Order Limited Agency Appointment agreement. Accordingly, the dealers will be considered agents of the manufacturer. The manufacturer, engaged in business in this state, will be held responsible for the collection of use tax on tourist order sales.
Conversely, where the dealer acts as a principal in the transaction, as evidenced by documentation that indicate the dealer is acting as the seller as opposed to an agent of the manufacturer, such dealer will be considered the retailer liable for the collection of use tax. 7/10/96. (Am. 2000–1).
