Tennessee recently released a notice clarifying how sales tax applies to automobiles purchased using a Veterans Affairs (VA) Automobile Grant. The VA provides a once in a lifetime grant towards the purchase of a new or used vehicle for qualifying service members or veterans with a service-connected disability. The portion of the price paid by the VA grant is taxable.

However, the portion of the purchase price in excess of the grant is exempt. Dealers must determine the taxable and exempt portion of the purchase price. The notice provides examples of how to figure these amounts.

The VA publishes a new maximum grant amount annually on October 1. The maximum VA automobile grant for October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019 is $21,058.69. Note that exemptions for (1) automobile adaptive equipment (ASSE) or (2) mobility enhancing equipment may also apply.
