Members of the Automotive Service Association of Texas (ASA-Texas) took part in a recent House Bill 71 hearing. The bill, if passed, would allow automotive repair shops to be taxed the same rate that dealers, parts stores and tire stores are now taxed.

ASA-Texas members who attended the hearing included Charles Parker, executive director, and Johnny Bangs of Bangs & Bumps Collision Shop.

Currently, automotive service and collision repair shops owned and operated by new or used car dealerships are taxed at half the rate used to tax independent automotive repair facilities doing identical work. The Texas state tax code classifies dealership sales as “retail” and allows their service and repair business to be included under that banner.

ASA requests that Texas members rally around House Bill 71 by sending a letter to their legislators urging them to support this bill.
