    I still think that Elio wins on this just because it's literally a political driven issue and has nothing to do with the facts.

    Very true, it's all politics, and in politics there is never a winner, just feed ego's to see who wins the feeding contest.
    Never proves a thing.

    I think this will ultimately be struck down as an attempt to tax interstate commerce which is unconstitutional. Constitutional Federal Law (not all of them are) will trump State Law.

    Once they are ready to begin manufacturing, they will have to tax Elio and collect sales tax on Louisiana residents ONLY. Making reservations does NOT make one a manufacturer, though it may indicate an intention to manufacture. But I think Louisiana has over reached at this point by jumping the gun.

    It will not effect taxes you pay taxes based on the county you live in on any motor car or motorcycle.

    Still no information yet on the court case. Maybe the judge is waiting for Elio to get funding?

    Somewhat related is the Autocycle Bill. If it does not pass then the Elio would be considered a motorcycle and each state would/could define their own requirements. Read the bill here: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/115/hr2381/text

    Given a 2% chance of being passed. Maybe they are waiting for Elio funding too.

    With a few exceptions, most all sales/use tax are State Taxes. Normally property taxes are county based.
