In a recent Arkansas Admin ruling, a taxpayers was held responsible for sales tax on a vehicle that they no longer own. The seller repossessed the taxpayer’s car and it was later found that the car was never registered in Arkansas. The taxpayer insisted that the car was not in their possession for more than 30 days. Unfortunately the State of Arkansas stated that based on the governing statutes the fact that possession of the vehicle was taken creates a tax liability.
