What is a VIN?
"VIN" stands for Vehicle Identification Number. This number is a unique universal serial number issued to every car by the car manufacturer. Within the 17-digit vin number are codes that indicate the car's make and model, where the car was manufactured, a serial number, and even information about optional equipment.

Used Car Taxes

Senate Sends Repeal of Used-Car Sales Tax Law to Sebelius

A bill scrapping an unpopular new sales-tax law for used cars is on its way to Governor Sebelius.

The law angered many people who faced unexpectedly high sales tax on used vehicles they bought from private parties. Complaints began surfacing as soon as the law took effect last July.

Legislation repealing the law, and setting aside $5 million for refunds, won final approval in the Senate Wednesday. The governor has said she looked forward to signing it.

The new law changed the way used vehicles were valued for tax purposes in sales between private individuals. The goal was to thwart people who under-valued their purchases to reduce their sales tax obligation.

But critics quickly noted that the law failed to distinguish between old clunkers, and used cars in mint condition.
