The vehicle had been modified to some degree for use by the physically challenged by the previous owner. However, the purchaser was unable to adapt it further to meet her needs and sold it prior to registering it.
A person who purchases a vehicle is liable for use tax even though the person sells the vehicle prior to transferring registration. However, the part of the transfer price attributable to modifications made to enable the vehicle to be used to transport a physically handicapped person is excluded from the amount subject to tax. 10/20/94.
