New Motor Vehicle Dealer Rules

Beginning with the July 2014 tax period, motor vehicle dealers should no longer use the current ST-103 return. A new Indiana sales tax return, ST-103CAR, has been developed specifically for motor vehicle retailers. You should begin using this return, either through INtax or another approved filing method, beginning with the July 2014 tax period. To update your return template to the ST-103CAR form, contact us via the INtax message center, mail, or fax to (317) 232-1021. Instructions for this return will be available on the department website in July.

For each of these transactions, you must complete and retain Form ST-108NR. You also must provide a copy to the buyer as evidence of the amount of sales tax collected.

This new statute takes effect July 1, 2014. Beginning on that date, dealers must collect the applicable tax rate on all sales. The various state tax rates are listed in the below table.
