Fiscal Note Summary


Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.


    The purpose of this bill is to exempt from the sales tax all-terrain vehicles and utility terrain vehicles used as farm equipment.
    
    The Division issued titles for approximately 15,000 ATV/UTVs in fiscal year 2017. The Division estimates that 1% of these vehicles (15,000 X 1% = 150) would qualify for the farm use exemption. The Division collects approximately $500 for each vehicle. The total amount of revenue lost would be $75,000 (150 X $500 = $75,000).
