Iowa Offers Deal on Motor Home Taxes
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The state is offering a one-time deal to people who have been dodging Iowa taxes on motor homes.
The offer includes paying the initial registration fee of 5 percent of the purchase price and a penalty of 10 percent of the fee.
If the tax evaders don't do that by Oct. 23, they could face fraud charges and fines equal to 75 percent of the fee that was evaded.
A law passes this past spring is aimed at keeping Iowans from registering luxury motor homes in Montana, where out-of-state residents legally can set up a shell company and register a motor home there. Montana doesn't charge general sales taxes.
