The bill would amend Chapter 151 of the Tax Code, regarding the state sales and use tax.
The bill would amend Section 151.801 to require that the sales tax proceeds from the sale, storage, or use of new and used motor vehicle tires, and new and used motor vehicle parts, be deposited to the credit of the State Highway Fund rather than the General Revenue Fund.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2015.
Comptroller and Census data relating to auto parts, accessories, and tires were used to estimate the sales of such items. The amount of these sales was then multiplied by the tax rate to estimate the state sales tax thereon that would be dedicated to the state highway fund, and then extrapolated through fiscal 2020.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
