 AUTO INDUSTRY NEWS AT A GLANCE

Listed here are several articles pertaining to the
auto industry in general that appeared recently in newspapers and other media outlets across the nation.



…more news articles are included at the end of this issue.




VENDOR / SERVICE FEE ALLOWANCE; DEALERS CAN STILL OBTAIN REFUND IF NOT DEDUCTED IN JULY

Any dealership that may not have deducted the recently restored 2.22% vendor/service fee from the July sales/use tax remittance can still obtain a refund of this amount.  To do so, the tax return must have been filed on-time.  As long as the July tax filing was made on-time, the dealership is eligible for a refund, but it is not automatic.  An overpayment refund must be obtained separately by filing form DR 0137 Claim for Refund (Rev.  02/21/2006).
CLICK HERE for more information on the vendor fee allowance implementation.
