ELKHART, Indiana — A stroke of Gov. Eric Holcomb's pen could lead to an economic boom for Indiana recreational vehicle dealers.
Senate Bill 172 passed the House of Representatives in Indianapolis on Tuesday, paving the way for out-of-state RV and cargo trailer buyers from nine states, including Michigan, to finally avoid being double taxed when they purchase their new RV in Indiana, according to a story by The Elkhart Truth.
If Holcomb signs the bill, it will become law.
