Sales Tax Exemption on Parts and Labor Pushed in Connecticut

April 16, 2007

HARTFORD, CT – The Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) is supporting the passage of legislation in Connecticut that would exempt maintenance and repair costs on trucks over 26,000 lbss from sales tax. The bill, HR 5031, proposed by Representative Joseph Serra (D–Middletown), would exempt both parts and labor on Class 7 and 8 trucks from the sales tax. Currently, trucks with a GVWR over 26,000 lbs. used in interstate commerce are exempt from sales and use tax in Connecticut, but repairs on those trucks are not exempt. Surrounding states Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island all offer sales tax exemptions for some or all of the maintenance costs on heavy-duty trucks.
