Indiana Changes Policy on Taxability of Documentation Fees

Posted 3:00 PM by
Indiana has recently issued an updated version of Sales Tax Information Bulletin #28S, changing its policy on the taxability of documentation fees, effective April 2, 2019. Historically, the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDOR) has treated these fees as if they were separate from the sale of the vehicle. It treated them as fees for helping a customer title and register a vehicle with the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). This is a nontaxable service in Indiana, so the documentation fees were not subject to sales tax. However, effective April 2, 2019, the IDOR will assume documentation fees are subject to sales tax if they are not “convenience fees,” a specific term that is defined in statute.

Tax Reform: Nondeductible Parking Expenses and Their Impact on Your Business

Posted 12:53 PM by
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) provides that expenses for qualified transportation fringe benefits are nondeductible. The IRS recently released interim guidance via Notice 2018-99 clarifying that a portion of taxpayers’ “parking expenses” is considered nondeductible as qualified transportation fringes. Thus, Notice 2018-99 has significantly expanded the number of taxpayers that will need to calculate the nondeductible portion of their parking expenses. Now, all employers that own or lease a parking lot where their employees park will need to consider if an add-back to taxable income is required. This provision impacts the preparation of 2018 tax returns as it applies to expenses incurred or paid after Dec. 31, 2017.
