235.0000 FEDERAL TAXES—Regulation 1617
235.0090 Highway Revenue Act of 1982. This Act, which is Title V of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982, amends or adds provisions to Title 26 United States Code (Internal Revenue Code of 1954) relating to fuel and other highway taxes. For sales and use tax purposes, the Act does not affect our present method of taxing sales of fuels or tires.
The Act does affect our method of taxing sales of trucks, tractors, and trailers. The old manufacturer's excise tax was properly included in the measure of the sales and use tax. However, under the Highway Revenue Act of 1982, the new 12 percent and the transitional 2 percent tax (operative 4/1/83) are excluded from the measure of our sales and use tax as these are taxes imposed on the retail sale or purchase of the taxed vehicles. 3/11/83.
