Let us remind you that the second sale of a passenger car or motorcycle (moped) within a year is subject to tax in the amount of 5% of its assessed value, the third sale — 18%. For trucks, buses, special equipment, tractors, trailers — 5% for the first and second sale, and 18% for the third and all subsequent ones.
