S.C. Code Regs. 117-309.16 - Materials Used to Recondition Automotive Vehicles for Resale

Current through Register Vol. 45, No. 9, September 24, 2021

The purchases of materials and parts by automobile dealers for purposes of reconditioning automotive vehicles for resale are construed to be purchases of tangible personal property at wholesale and are, therefore, not subject to the sales or use tax.

The practical result of the foregoing is to enable the automobile dealer to purchase free of the tax for resale only those items of tangible personal property which are to be passed on to the ultimate consumer, and does not extend to such things as machinery, equipment, tools, paint remover, upholstery cleaner, tire cleaner and other properties which do not become a part of the vehicle being reconditioned for sale.
