The Missouri Department of Revenue recently issued a private letter ruling discussing the taxability of items sold to a common carrier (Mo. Ltr. Rul. No. LR 7068 (Dept. of Revenue Mar. 15, 2012)). The applicant, a registered vendor in Missouri, sells various products to common carriers. These products include items for on-vehicle usage, including driver's logbooks, safety pocketbooks, etc. and items that attach directly to the vehicle or trailer, including placards, decals, trailers seals, and load tie down straps. The applicant wanted to know which items sold to common carriers may be exempt from tax.

In Missouri, "materials, replacement parts and equipment purchased for use directly upon, and for the repair and maintenance or manufacture of, motor vehicles, watercraft, railroad rolling stock or aircraft engaged as common carriers of persons or property," are specifically exempt from tax. Of the items that the Applicant sells to common carriers, those that can be attached directly to the vehicle or trailer will be exempt from tax. All other items will be subject to tax at the full rate.
