Bill Caption

Relating to an exemption for open-enrollment charter schools from taxes imposed on the sale, lease, or rental of a motor vehicle and registration fees for motor vehicles.

Fiscal Notes

There would be an indeterminate amount of state revenue loss depending on the number of motor vehicles purchased by and registered to open enrollment charter schools.

Bill Analysis

Under this bill, open-enrollment charter schools would not have to pay motor vehicle registration fees and would be exempt from paying certain sales and use taxes related to the purchase, lease, or rental of a motor vehicle. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Numerous other public agencies already have the benefit of these exemptions so it makes sense to include open-enrollment charter schools as well. It makes little sense for charter schools to use money that should be used for educating students to pay taxes or fees to another public agency. For this reason we support this legislation.
