State Sales Tax
We do not collect any state tax unless the trailer is tagged in North Carolina.
Federal Excise Tax
All trucks, and trailers, designed to haul 12 tons or more are subject to 12% Federal Excise Tax when sold new. Everyone has to pay this tax and we are bound by law to collect it and remit it to the IRS, with only 3 exceptions:
1. The government does not pay it,
2. Exports from the US are not subject to it,
3. Dealers with an FET exemption number do not pay it
