Indiana Only Allows Sales Price Reduction for "Like-Kind" Trade-Ins

The Indiana Department of Revenue recently ruled that a recreational vehicle (RV) dealer could not reduce the taxable sales price of an RV by accepting a passenger vehicle, such as a car or pickup truck, as a trade-in.

Indiana allows dealers to reduce the taxable sales price of property by accepting "like-kind" property as a trade-in. For the trade-in allowance to apply, the property must be of "the same kind or character."

The ruling relied on guidance stating that a "like-kind exchange" means the trade-in of a passenger vehicle for a passenger vehicle, or an RV for an RV. The allowance does not apply to the trade-in of a passenger vehicle for an RV.
