PURPOSE

To provide you information regarding the actual motor vehicle sales tax and penalties collected and reported through the Registration and Title System (RTS) by your county in calendar year 2007.

DETAILS

Beginning January 2008, sales tax credit was estimated based on sales tax commission for calendar year 2007. Utilizing the new figures provided by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, the actual amount of motor vehicle sales tax and penalties your county is entitled to retain during calendar year 2008 is indicated on the attached list under the Sales Tax Credit column. This amount is retained through registration fees, and the remainder of the tax commission will be taken from motor vehicle sales tax and Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) surcharges.

Beginning on April 15, 2008, the funds remittance reports reflect the new County Road and Bridge Fund split levels calculated from these figures.
