Tax 11.83(8) (8) Vehicles used by licensed Wisconsin motor vehicle dealers.
Tax 11.83(8)(a)(a) General. Motor vehicles purchased without tax for resale by a Wisconsin motor vehicle dealer licensed under ss. 218.0101 to 218.0163, Stats., and used for a purpose in addition to retention, demonstration, or display, except motor vehicles loaned to any school or school district for a driver training educational program conducted by the school or school district, are subject to Wisconsin use tax. Motor vehicles used by the dealership solely for retention, demonstration, and display, while holding them for sale in the regular course of business, or solely for leasing to others, such as customers and employees, are not subject to Wisconsin use tax.
Tax 11.83(8)(b) (b) Amount subject to use tax. The amount subject to use tax on a motor vehicle used by a licensed motor vehicle dealer for a purpose in addition to retention, demonstration, or display is one of the following:
Tax 11.83(8)(b)1. 1. Motor vehicles held for sale which are assigned to and used by a specific dealer employee subject to withholding from federal income tax on wages are subject to Wisconsin use tax on $140 per motor vehicle registration plate per month. The $140 amount is effective January 1, 2009 and is subject to change annually as explained in the notes following par. (b).
Tax 11.83(8)(b)2. 2. Motor vehicles held for sale which are assigned to and used by persons holding an ownership interest in Wisconsin licensed motor vehicle dealerships who are not subject to withholding for federal income tax purposes, but who actively participate in the day-to-day operation of the dealership, are subject to Wisconsin use tax on $140 per motor vehicle registration plate per month. The $140 amount is effective January 1, 2009 and is subject to change annually as explained in the notes following this subdivision.
Tax 11.83 Note Note: As provided in s. 77.53 (1m), Stats., the department will annually adjust the amount per plate to the nearest whole dollar to reflect the annual percentage change in the U.S. consumer price index for all urban customers, U.S. city average, as determined by the United States department of labor, for the 12 months ending on June 30 of the year before the change. The department will publicize any rate change in an issue of the Wisconsin Tax Bulletin and Sales and Use Tax Report prior to the January 1 that the change becomes effective.
Tax 11.83 Note Note: The amount per plate subject to use tax under par. (b) 1. and 2. was $96 for the period September 1, 1995 through December 31, 1996, $99 for the period January 1, 1997, and $102 for the period January 1, 1998 through December 31, 1998.
Tax 11.83(8)(b)3. 3. Motor vehicles used by the dealer or any person other than an employee of the dealer and which are held for sale and not assigned to and used by a specific dealer employee subject to federal withholding on wages are subject to Wisconsin use tax on the lease value of the motor vehicle computed on a calendar month basis. If a motor vehicle is used by the dealer for a period of less than one calendar month, the amount subject to use tax is the daily lease value calculated by multiplying the applicable monthly lease value by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days used by the dealer for a purpose in addition to retention, demonstration, or display and the denominator of which is the number of days in the calendar month. Lease value is computed using the internal revenue service lease value table contained in 26 CFR 1.61-21 (d) (2). In the lease value table, the “automobile fair market value" is one of the following:
Tax 11.83(8)(b)3.a. a. The amount an individual would have to pay in an arm's length transaction to purchase the motor vehicle. The amount includes all amounts attributable to the purchase of the automobile such as sales tax and title fees.
Tax 11.83(8)(b)3.b. b. The motor vehicle dealer's cost of purchasing the automobile, including all expenses attributable to that purchase, provided the automobile is owned by the dealer and the purchase was made at arm's length.
Tax 11.83(8)(b)4. 4. Motor vehicles not held for sale, including motor vehicles properly capitalized for Wisconsin income or franchise tax purposes, are subject to use tax based on the purchase price of the motor vehicle as defined in s. 77.51 (12m), Stats.
Tax 11.83(8)(c) (c) Recordkeeping. It is presumed that all dealer plates issued by the department of transportation to a licensed motor vehicle dealer are used each month on motor vehicles assigned to employees subject to withholding for federal income tax purposes or owners who actively participate in the day-to-day operations of the dealership for a purpose in addition to retention, demonstration, or display and are subject to use tax as provided in par. (b) 1. and 2., unless one of the following applies:
Tax 11.83(8)(c)1. 1. The motor vehicle dealer keeps adequate records showing that the dealer plates were not used during the month on motor vehicles for a purpose in addition to retention, demonstration, or display.
Tax 11.83(8)(c)2. 2. The motor vehicle to which the dealer plate is assigned is subject to use tax as computed in par. (b) 3. or 4.
Tax 11.83(9) (9) Sales by dealers to their salespersons or other employees. When a licensed Wisconsin motor vehicle dealer sells a motor vehicle to one of the dealer's salespersons or other employees, the transaction is subject to the sales tax.
Tax 11.83(10) (10) Heavy equipment dealers. Heavy equipment dealers who are not registered with the Wisconsin department of transportation as motor vehicle dealers because their sales are too few in number to require registration, but who are retailers that hold a Wisconsin seller's permit, must charge the sales tax on their sales of motor vehicles. The heavy equipment dealers may purchase motor vehicles they are going to resell without tax for resale by providing a properly completed exemption certificate.
Tax 11.83(11) (11) Motor vehicle repair parts and supplies.
Tax 11.83(11)(a) (a) Motor vehicle dealers with body shops and any other person engaged in motor vehicle repair may purchase for resale without tax tangible personal property and items, property, and goods under s. 77.52 (1) (b), (c), and (d), Stats., which are physically transferred to the customer's vehicle and which leave the repair facility with the customer. The property includes paints, paint hardeners, plastic fillers, welding rods, and auto parts.
Tax 11.83(11)(b) (b) Tangible personal property and items, property, and goods under s. 77.52 (1) (b), (c), and (d), Stats., not physically transferred to a customer's motor vehicle and which do not leave the repair facility with the customer are subject to tax. The property includes tools, equipment, and supplies used or consumed in performing motor vehicle repair service. Taxable supplies include sandpaper, masking paper and tape, buffing pads, paint and lacquer thinner, clean and glaze compound, disc pads, paint remover, paint masks, tack rags, steel wool, industrial gases, metal conditioner, brushes, lacquer removing solvent, rubbing compound, wax and grease remover, fluxing materials, disc adhesive, and all other items not physically transferred to the customer even though a separate charge may be made to the customer for these supplies.
Tax 11.83(12) (12) Exemption for mixing and processing units. Sales, licenses, leases, and rentals of mobile units used for mixing and processing, and the motor vehicles or trailers on which the units are mounted, including accessories, attachments, parts, supplies, and materials for those vehicles, trailers, and units, are exempt from sales and use tax.
Tax 11.83(13) (13) Exemption for vehicles used in waste reduction or recycling. The sales price from the sale, license, lease, or rental of vehicles which are not required to be licensed for highway use and which are used exclusively and directly in waste reduction or recycling activities is exempt from sales and use tax.
Tax 11.83(14) (14) Refunds under “lemon law." Sales tax refunds made under s. 218.0171 (2) (f), Stats., the “lemon law," are normally made in the same manner as the other sales tax refunds. However, when a defective motor vehicle is returned to the manufacturer for a refund of the purchase price, the purchaser is permitted to collect a sales tax refund directly from the department if the manufacturer fails to refund the tax.
Tax 11.83(15) (15) Vegetable oil and animal fat. Sales of vegetable oil and animal fat to an individual that will be converted to motor vehicle fuel for use in that individual's personal motor vehicle are exempt from sales and use tax if the individual does not sell any of that fuel during the year. This exemption only applies if the motor vehicle fuel is exempt from the motor vehicle fuel tax under s. 78.01 (1), Stats.
