Got Form ST556 - What Now?

Discussion in 'Tax' started by gmark@svs.com, Apr 9, 2006.

    We totaled a car, bought another, got a form ST556 from the
    dealer to get some sort of tax benefit. But they don't know
    what to do with it.

    Is the tax on the original car deductible or something? Do
    we deduct it directly from our taxes as a credit?

    What do we do with this thing?

    Thx!

    It will go on Schedule A.

    Well I have never heard of an ST556 form. Doesn't sound
    like an IRS form. Missy, could you tell us more?
