Export Tax

An export is an item that is being sent out the country to another country. Each country has their own export tax, which can vary from no tax at all on exports to a significant tax. Export taxes may also vary on the items that are being exported considered value. There are a lot of questions regarding export taxes, below are a few questions regarding export tax that have been answered by the Experts.

What are the export taxes if an individual exports a car as a gift to someone in another country?

Often times there are no export taxes on a vehicle; there would only be import taxes on the vehicle when it gets to Poland. However if the individual buys the car new, and takes it themselves down to the shipper to be shipped overseas, then the individual would incur local and state sales tax on the vehicle. If the individual were to have the dealer ship the car directly to port, as long as the individual who purchased it did not take possession of the vehicle at all, then there will be no local and state sales tax. Except in New Jersey, where the dealer is required by law to obtain the state sales tax.

Is there an export tax credit for businesses in the United States? If so what is the maximum allowed?

In some cases there is an export tax credit for US businesses that export products. To be able to get the export tax credit the business will have to meet those things required by the Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation. Individuals do not receive export tax credits the same as businesses, but there are some tax credits that may be able to be used, such as manufacturing deduction under Section 199.

An exporter is asking for a Value Added Tax (VAT) number and refuses to send the exports unless a VAT number is supplied, what does the business receiving these export do?

Since the United States does not charge VAT tax, it only charges sales and use tax, the business who is importing from an exporter in another country will need to have the company to which the items are being exported, register for a VAT account in the country being exported from. The VAT is a form of export tax, and the United States does not charge export tax.
