Motor Vehicle Tax:
Appraising Used Motor Vehicles in Private-Party Sales by
Licensed Motor Vehicle Dealers and Insurance Adjusters
Effective October 1, 2006, Tax Code Section 152.0412 allows a purchaser of a used motor vehicle in a private-party sale to
get an appraisal to establish the amount of motor vehicle sales tax due. A private-party sale is one that does not involve a
licensed motor vehicle dealer. This appraisal process does not involve dealer sales.
Eligible appraisers
Licensed Texas motor vehicle dealers can appraise the categories of motor vehicles that they are licensed to sell. That
is, automobile dealers can appraise automobiles, motorcycle dealers can appraise motorcycles and trailer dealers can
appraise trailers. Licensed dealers include new and used vehicle dealers, wholesale dealers, wholesale auction dealers,
motorcycle dealers, trailer dealers and any other dealers licensed by Transportation Code, Chapter 503, Subchapter B,
but not a drive-a-way operator.
An insurance adjuster can appraise any type of used motor vehicle.
Appraisal fee
Under the law, the Comptroller sets the fee for a certified appraisal by a licensed Texas motor vehicle dealer. Comptroller
Rule 3.79 (34 T.A.C. §3.79) states that the fee can be no less than $100 and no more than $300, except for appraisals
of motorcycles, house trailers, travel trailers and motor homes.
A licensed motorcycle dealer can charge no less than $40 and no more than $300 for a certified appraisal of a motorcycle.
For a certified appraisal of a house trailer, travel trailer or motor home, the fee can be no less than $100 and no more
than $500.
The law allows that licensed insurance adjusters set their own fees for a certified appraisal.
Appraisal standards
The appraiser must view the motor vehicle in person and provide all the information requested on the appraisal form.
The appraiser should identify mechanical, appearance or other factors that affect that retail value.
The form must be filled out in full. If an item does not apply, note “not applicable.” Since any change to the appraisal form
after completion voids the form in its entirety, please refrain from using crossed-out information.
The appraiser should keep a copy of the appraisal.
