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!

Priceless.

Of course difficult, not impossible, to finance purchaseS held in an LLC.
I believe those llc deals in Montana are illegal in some states where they will check registrations and licenses on rvs in driveways, etc. be careful. It's considered fraud and tax evasion.

The possible combinations is a number created by multiplying each number by the next number down so the answer might approach the national debt number:

50 x 40 x 48 x 47 ...............x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1
