From the Paper:

"In Daimler Chrysler Services North America LLC v. Department of Treasury, Michigan Court of Appeals, No. 264323 (2006), the Court was called upon to address a similar issue. The creditor, Daimler Chrysler, overpaid tax revenue to the treasury for motor vehicles sold to consumers by its affiliated dealers and sought relief under the bad-debt provision of the General Sales Tax, which allowed taxpayers to recover overpayment when expected sales proceeds were not received. The trial court determined that Daimler Chrysler was not a taxpayer, and determined that there was no nexus between the bad debt and the retail sales of the automobiles by the dealers. The Court disagreed with the trial court's decision and held that Daimler Chrysler was a taxpayer under the bad-debt provision, that there was a nexus between Daimler Chrysler's pad debt and the retail sales, and that Daimler Chrysler could recover under the bad-debt provision."
