If a state will not "reciprocate" with Cali as moosetags described, don't buy it there. You will pay sales tax twice. Sometimes salesman are unaware or uneducated. Sometimes salesman are dishonest or deceitful to make the sale.

We have bought Airstreams and Suburbans in Ohio, Michigan, Mississippi, Colorado, and Florida in recent years. We have only paid sales tax in Florida.

That's because those states "reciprocate" with Florida. Arkansas and Tennessee reciprocate with MIssissippi. Alabama and Indiana do not. Ask me how I know...

As far as that goes, Florida does not reciprocate with Mississippi.
Sometimes it is dealer ignorance or dishonesty. They just want to make the sale.

I don't know diddly squat about reciprocal agreements. But you always have the option of telling the dealer, "Don't bother with TTL, I'll go to the DMV and take care of it myself." I've done that with every single vehicle purchase in the past thirty years, including when I bought a minivan in Oklahoma and registered in Louisiana, and when I bought my Airstream in Mississippi and registered in Louisiana. And in almost every case, it cost me less to do it myself than what the dealer wanted to charge me for "tax, title, and license."

If you didn't have the option of going to the DMV yourself instead of having the seller do it on your behalf, a lot of private sales wouldn't happen, either.

That is not true. It doesn't work that way in Alabama or Indiana or Florida.
That is why I wouldn't buy my Harley in Alabama. At least they were honest. I bought the bike in Indiana and paid sales tax twice. The salesman was either ignorant or dishonest.
A coworker bought a bike in Florida. He paid sales tax twice. He was able to get the dealer to refund the sales tax ($700) by threatening to hire a lawyer and threatening to go to all the local news media and tell what happened.
Believe it or not, I do sometimes know what I am talking about.
I wouldn't bother to open my mouth to speak if I didn't know what I was talking about or if I hadn't experienced it or known someone who did (in this particular matter both).
Sometimes it might pay to listen to me. If you don't and it happens to you- oh well, I tried to tell you-

I would take your word for it, but I'm an engineer and have no problem with doing my own research. State laws and regulations are all public records and you can go online look up the DMV requirements in any state.

If there was any question about the TTL, I'd look up the legal requirements in both my domicile state and the puchase state, so see if there was a legal requirement that the dealer collect TTL from out-of-state purchasers. Or even in-state purchasers.

In every state where I've ever purchased a vehicle (three states so far, Missisippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma), there was no legal requirement that the dealer collect TTL and handle the registration for me, only that the TTL be paid to the domicile state (not the state where it was purchased). So I handled it myself to make sure it was done, and done for the right price. But I haven't purchased vehicles in all 50 states, either.

There may be states where there is a law requiring the tax be paid in the state where the transaction was performed, regardless of the purchaser's domicile state. But I'd always look it up before visiting the dealer, so that I know for sure, rather than taking anyone's word for it.

Yes, I read your post before responding to it. And no, I'm not smarter than you. It's not a competition.

It's just that your experiences and mine are so completely different on this one topic that people ought to read both sides of the issue— and do their own research before making a purchase in order to avoid surprises.

Ok, current dealerships is saying their lowest price is 39k, or about 11% off list. it seems to me that at this time if year they should be able to go lower. I'll take your advice and look at other dealerships, although I'd like to stay loyal to the one closest to us.

After you check with other dealerships, if you can get a better price, then go back to your local dealership and ask if they can match that price. Chances are that they can, if they don't want to lose the sale.

The main thing is to be clear on the sales tax issue before you lay your money down.
If it's not as it should be, walk away.
Not every salesman or dealer is knowledgeable or honest.

A few years ago I purchased a used AS from a friend in Kansas. We live in NJ. My plan was to complete the purchase in Kansas and get a Kansas temp. tag in order to complete our vacation travel and bring it home to NJ where we would ultimately register it ( and pay sales tax to NJ). Kansas allows for the temp tag for a very reasonable fee. The snag came with our insurance company who would not provide coverage UNTIL it was titled and registered here in NJ. So we went about things differently to be in compliance. I have seen temp tags issued in many states but certainly cannot speak for all. I suppose we could always purchase from a dealer in Delaware ( if there is one) and pay no sales tax up front ?????

Mississippi does not recognize/acknowledge temporary plates.
A Mississippi resident must tag/title/license a vehicle and pay sales tax within 5 business days of purchase.
All a temporary plate here shows is an expiration date a week from purchase. The ones that just say "Tag Applied For" are not recognized and a trooper or local cop could write you a ticket for no tag.
That being said, the tags on my truck 'n' trailer are expired. I will get the truck tag tomorrow. I will get the trailer tag next payday in two weeks. They don't actually charge a late fee until the 15th of the month. Several years ago I just asked the lady straight out when is a late added, and she told me. Since then I've been a little late every time. I've driven around with the expired plates and had cops follow me but do nothing. They must have figured I was gonna get it renewed soon.
