Senator Crowder Aims at Tax Relief on Used Vehicles

State Senator Larry Crowder, District 35

Colorado State Senator Larry Crowder plans to introduce a bill eliminating the state sales tax on the purchase of used vehicles.

In the media release explaining his reasoning, Crowder stated, “A bill I will be introducing concerns economic empowering of the middle class. The bill is to eliminate state sales tax on the purchase of used vehicles. I am of the opinion that the state collects 2.9% tax on the purchase price of new vehicles. If tax debt has been satisfied on new vehicles, then the sales tax on used vehicles should be eliminated. With the escalating cost of new and used vehicles, this becomes more difficult for many, to purchase a used vehicle and continuously upgrade to a reliable vehicle.   In rural Colorado one tool that we never leave home without is jumper cables. To have a continuous supply of reliable vehicles at an affordable cost should very much help those that struggle with everyday expenses.”

Crowder, a Republican, represents Colorado Senate District 35, including all or portions of Alamosa, Baca, Bent, Conejos, Costilla, Crowley, Custer, Huerfano, Kiowa, Las Animas, Mineral, Otero, Prowers, Pueblo, Rio Grande, and Saguache counties.
