ATVs are not subject to the Purchase and Use Tax, but are subject to Sales & Use Tax. ATVs purchased from a dealer (or business) and registered in Vermont; the dealer (or business) must submit a tax form to the Vermont DMV. For ATVs purchased as a casual (private) sale, no Purchase and Use Tax is due. A Vermont resident who purchases an ATV from an out-of-state dealer must prove payment of the out-of-state sales tax (equal to, or greater than the rate of sales tax in Vermont).
NOTE: ATVs are not eligible for a Purchase and Use Tax Exemption.
