Introduced by Sen. Valde Garcia (R) on June 22, 2004, to eliminate the use tax (sales tax) on the sale of used mobile homes sales beginning in 2011. Under Senate Bill 1311, these would be subject to a transfer tax equal to three percent of the value of the mobile home.
Referred to the Senate Finance Committee on June 22, 2004.
1) SB1313 by PONIES on June 24, 2004 If I've had to pay taxes through my apartment rent to school districts, never having had any children, why should trailer parks be exempt?
2) SB1311 by PONIES on June 24, 2004 Don't pass SB1310 to begin with!
3) Sales Tax by PONIES on June 24, 2004 A bunch of hooey! I had to pay the hefty 6% use tax when I purchased a used car in 1998, 2000, and 2003. I also paid 'transfer fees'--title, registration, license plate, etc. When the taxes on used automobiles are reduced to a 3% transfer fee--that's when it should be levied against used mobile homes also!
