Senate Tax Reform Bill Passes with 100% Floor Plan Deductibility Preserved

Tax Bill Now Moves to House-Senate Conference

Today, the Senate passed the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act," which includes an NADA-supported amendment to preserve 100 percent deductibility of interest on floor plan loans. This amendment, offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), was the top priority for NADA in the Senate tax reform bill.

With the Senate rushing to pass a major tax overhaul, correcting the floor plan deductibility provision presented major challenges. Dealers and ATAEs once again rose to the challenge and helped generate the strong and sustained grassroots involvement we needed to prevail.

Senator Paul played a critical role in the inclusion of the 100 percent floor plan deductibility amendment in the tax bill. Also, other Senators fought hard to ensure this provision was kept in the bill, such as Sens. Kennedy (R-La.), Cassidy (R-La.), Young, (R-Ind.), Risch (R-Idaho) and Thune (R-S.D.). Please take a moment to thank these Senators, and others that you contacted, to make sure they know we greatly appreciate their efforts.

Now both the House and Senate tax reform bills include nearly identical floor plan interest deductibility provisions. The bill will soon be considered by a House-Senate conference committee to reconcile the House and Senate bills before final passage. It is possible that NADA will ask for your help to contact your lawmaker during the conference negotiations, as changes to the bill can still be made. Thank you and if you have any questions, please contact the NADA Legislative staff at 202.547.5500.

Federated Insurance’s – "Claim of the Month"
Could it happen to you?

A mechanic test drove a customer’s vehicle to better diagnose a problem. While listening for the problem, the mechanic got distracted and rear-ended another vehicle, seriously injuring the occupants. The dealership had not run a motor vehicle record (MVR) on the mechanic prior to allowing him to conduct the test drive. If they had, it would have revealed multiple accidents, speeding violations, and a DUI in the past three years. CLAIM AMOUNT: $850,000

What policies are in place to help prevent this from happening at your dealership? Do you know who’s driving your vehicles? Federated recommends several best practices to help protect your business and manage risks. For example:
  • Have a “no distracted driving” policy signed by the employees and kept on file.
  • Order motor vehicle records on ALL employees who may have driving privileges, even incidental.
  • Consider pre-employment and post-accident drug testing in accordance with your company policy and applicable state laws.
These are just a few loss control recommendations you can use to help protect your dealership. To learn more, contact your local Federated Insurance representative and request a copy of our Who’s Watching Your Vehicles? – Keys to Inventory Control auto dealer risk management packet. Federated Insurance is recommended by 19 state and national auto dealer associations just like yours for customized insurance programs and value-added risk management services, such as Federated’s Shield Network®, the Risk Management Resource Center, and the Federated Employment Practices Network®. Visit to find resources you can use to create or ramp up your own risk management program.
