Q:  Does the tire fee apply when the purchaser has a motor carrier (MC) permit number, or qualifies as a manufacturer?


Yes. The tire fee applies to all retail sales of new replacement vehicle tires regardless of whether the purchaser has a Motor Carrier (MC) permit issued by the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) or its successor agency, or whether the tire is used directly in a manufacturing process in that the equipment normally is exempt from sales tax. Thus, the application of the tire fee does not coincide with the sales tax application.
