Truckers are overtaxed and we simply know more about the taxation of trucking than anyone. States have forgotten that everything goes on a truck and without trucks we have no food, no clothing, and none of the things we enjoy that provide us the comforts of life.
Many states have statutory sales tax exemptions available to carriers. These exemptions may include the purchase/lease of tractors and trailers, related repair parts, and other tangible personal property that becomes part of the tractor or trailer. Approximately 30 states provide a reduced tax rate, partial exemption or full exemption on rolling stock and/or repair parts.
