Are there administrative differences between motor vehicles (including cycles) and trailers? Because we did as you describe above with our AS motorhome - bought out of state, drove it back home to Texas, paid 100% of the applicable sales tax to Texas as part of the registration process. No tax paid to state of origin.

We just did that. Bought a TV in Ga. No sales tax paid. I will pay the tax when I register the vehicle in SD. I wouldn't even let them do the title work.

That doesn't play in Kentucky, can't speak for other states. If you live here and own a car registered in another state you are subject to a pretty stiff fine after 10 days of residence. Kentucky has a personal property tax on vehicles they like to collect. It doesn't mean you won't get caught but if you do you will definitely get fined. Your neighbor may tolerate it for a while but sooner or later they will turn you in. If you have an accident or traffic stop and the paperwork doesn't match, that's going to be a problem.

I'm surprised the insurance companies allow this. My insurance is based on where I live. If I give false information I'd be afraid the company would cancel my policy, not a good thing.

If you live in one state and purchase a vehicle in another state, tell the salesman. They won't charge you the sales tax nor register it. You'll have to pay to your state when you register.

If you live in one state, purchase a vehicle there, then move to another state, you pay the difference in tax if the states have a reciprocal agreement, otherwise, you pay the full amount. If there is a reciprocal agreement and a small amount of time passes (not sure, but it's like months) you can bring the vehicle in as 'used' instead of new. If there's a difference then it may be even smaller.

Not necessarily. Each state has different regulations for sales tax and the selling process, and each home state has different regulations as to what they accept. The only way to know is to check the regulations in EACH state, selling and home, prior to purchase. That way you will not be stung.

As an example, I have a place in AZ for winter use but my home state is Idaho, where my vehicles are registered and my drivers license is issued.

I traded my car in AZ and had to pay the AZ state and local sales tax to even get the car off the lot. Then the temporary license got me home, where the AZ/Idaho reciprocal sales tax agreement on the state part only. Idaho told me I had paid more sales tax than they would have charged, but it was something I could not get out of.

In 2013 I considered buying an Airstream in AZ, but the additional local add on sales tax, which could not be gotten out of, killed the sale. I had learned from the car experience. AZ wants full state and local sales tax (where the dealer is located) on any vehicle sold in the state, no matter where you live and will take it.

See my post earlier in this thread.

Again, each state, home and selling, has different regulations. No one blanket answer will work of the question. You must check the two specific states you are dealing with to know.

I didn't think they could tax you on a vehicle purchase if it was an out of state buyer and would be taking the vehicle to another state for registration. I've done this a couple of times and my experience was as I stated, the salesmen were happy they didn't have to do the forms.

Always good advice to check with the local authorities on their practices.

The Mesa,AZ dealer has to collect the sales tax for the state of Arizona, Maricopa County and the city of Mesa. If you push really hard, you can get the Certificate of Origin (the title from the factory to the selling dealership) to preclude the dealer titling and plating in Arizona. I did not want to pay the extortion insurance rates in AZ for lower coverage. My Indiana carrier will not insure a vehicle with permanent non-Indiana title and registration (the temporary plates do not hinder getting coverage).

I went to the Indiana BMV with the VIN inspection form signed by a police officer in Mesa and concluded the paperwork with credit for all the sales taxes paid in AZ.

If you buy a car at the January collector car auctions in Scottsdale, no sales tax if it is loaded on a transporter without leaving the premises.

They bend over backwards to make special deals for the big boys in the area, saying that the money they bring in to the community is more than the loss from things like the sales tax. Just like the tax and other concessions made for various sporting stadiums all over the country.

But, good luck in getting a car or RV out of a local AZ dealership without paying full state and local sales tax.

A few states have changed their regulations on that in recent years.

Currently looking to buy a trailer out of Calf. or Arizona to bring North to register, in both states I will need to have someone tow the trailer out of the selling state so I can avoid paying tax on it in that state and only pay in the place where i live and it will be registered.

Bottom line for me:

1. Glad I am an engineer, not a lawyer or lawmaker, or government official after trying to read that AZ worksheet form.

2. Each state has different rules, regulations, and laws regarding things like titles, missing titles, proof of ownership, transfers, and taxes relative to other states. There is no one answer fits all situations on questions such as the original poster asked. Lets see, 50 states dealing with 50 other states, how many possible combinations exist... my head hurts. Big grin.

Out of state purchase

Kansas also has a 10% sales tax that they did not charge me since we were taking it out of Kansas. Our temp tag expired while in New Mexico so I put our own tags on it for the remainder of the trip with hopes that any police encounters would work itself out in our favor. Fortunately did not have to try that one out. Once at home we also have a time limit for registration but the DMV people did not ask and I didn't tell. I did ask about the sales tax. Specifically IF Kansas had hit me for the 10% would NJ refund the difference of 3 % ??? All I got was a laugh on that one so I can assume a NO. So in the end all worked out well.

You are better off with NO TAGS (or an expired temp) than "fictitious plates".

No tags you might have talked your way out of a no reg ticket that probably would not have been a huge fine, (because it is a trailer).

A fictitious plates ticket, probably not so much.




Brevi tempore!
