|CHAPTER 3||TAX ADMINISTRATION|
|SUBCHAPTER F||MOTOR VEHICLE SALES TAX|
|RULE §3.62||Insurance Settlements|
The motor vehicle sales and use tax is not due where an insurance company takes title to a motor vehicle as a result of a total loss settlement or a stolen vehicle which was later recovered, because the transaction in which an insurance company obtains title to a motor vehicle in return for an insurance settlement is not considered a sale. The motor vehicle sales and use tax is due when the insurance company purchases a replacement motor vehicle for the insured on a total loss or stolen vehicle claim.
