Latest round of regulations

The Rhode Island Division of Taxation has posted, as final, 19 regulations with the Rhode Island Department of State (Secretary of State).

The posting is part of the Division's months-long effort to streamline and re-codify its regulations. In the latest actions:

  • Seventeen regulations involving motor vehicles were repealed.
  • Substantially all of the contents of the repealed regulations mentioned above were consolidated into a single, new regulation.
  • An existing regulation -- involving optional service, maintenance, and extended warranty contracts -- was reformatted to be presented in the new Rhode Island Code of Regulations format. 

The latest Division regulations, including repeals, are all effective December 21, 2017, and are available on the Department of State website (see screenshot below).
