States requiring sales tax be paid for total loss settlements

by Diminished Value Car Appraiser on May 21, 2013

Sales tax on total loss cars

Below is a list that shows which states require insurance companies to pay sales tax above and beyond the vehicle’s actual cash value.

A third party claim is a claim filed against another carrier (at fault carrier). A first party claim is a claim filed against your own carrier, regardless of fault.

On a first party claim your policy will indicate if you’re eligible for reimbursement for the sales tax after your vehicle is declared a total loss. As a matter of public policy most carriers pay for sales tax on all claims.
