Kansas senate soon to dispose "Clunker Law"
Since last year, taxes on private used sales were calculated under Kansas’ state valuation rather than actual sale price. Kansas senate will soon repeal the "clunker law" bill that took effect July 1. Car buyers said they had felt cheated when they paid sales taxes on their used car or truck.
Lawmakers said they heard more complaints from constituents about last year's change than any other issue they had dealt with.
An estimated 180,000 transactions take place each year in Kansas involving private sellers, suggesting that more than 50,000 buyers could be eligible for a refund.
Only people who purchased a vehicle from a private seller after July 1 will be eligible for a refund.
