Supreme Court takes RV dealer’s tax case

(Jan. 17, 2018) -- An Indiana case dealing with out-of-state tax issues will come before the Indiana Supreme Court after the justices unanimously granted review to a dispute between the Indiana Department of State Revenue and a Hoosier RV dealer.

INDIANAPOLIS — In an August opinion in Richardson’s RV Inc. v. Department of State Revenue, 18S-TA-22, Indiana Tax Court Judge Martha Blood Wentworth granted summary judgment to Middlebury-based Richardson’s RV Inc. on its challenge to the Department of Revenue’s proposed assessments. The recreational vehicle dealer sold to in-state and out-of-state customers, but gave out-of-state customers the option to pay Indiana’s sales tax or their home state’s sales tax, The Indiana Lawayer reported.

If a customer chose to pay the sales tax for their home-state, Richardson’s transferred the RVs to the customer at a location in Michigan, a state that does not have a reciprocal agreement with Indiana, according to The Indiana Lawyer. Wentworth upheld that practice in August, finding “the sales at issue were made and title passed upon physical delivery in Michigan.”
