Yes, but it is called as 'used tax'. "Use tax is generally imposed on the purchaser of tangible personal property that is used, consumed, or stored in this state. Sales of vehicles, vessels, and aircraft by licensed dealers are usually subject to sales tax, for which sales tax reimbursement is collected at the time of purchase. Use tax applies to the cost of vehicles, vessels, and aircraft purchased from non-dealers (for example, private parties) or from outside California for use in this state. Use tax also applies to most leases of tangible personal property. Private party sales or brokered transactions are normally subject to use tax. If the first use of the property occurs in California, use tax may apply even if the purchaser is not a resident of the state. The sales and use tax are "mutually exclusive," which means that either sales tax or use tax applies to a single transaction, but not both."

While you do not need an attorney, it is best to have an agent represent you.

There is generally not a sales tax on used items such as cars. However, the car would need to be re-registered, and a component of that is a vehicle tax.

I just called the California DMV and asked this same question. To avoid the CA sales tax you need to either; 1. Flat bed the vehicle out of California and then register it in Oregon or 2. Have the dealer deliver it to you out of the state of California. (I'm thinking of having it delivered just across the border in Ashland.) Essentially, you can not operate the vehicle in California before it gets registered in Oregon. When I asked this question of auto dealerships they were totally confused. You will need to educate them . . . lol.

Need to specify property, income, state sales or. . . .

SOme divine horses can not be sold but you occasionally see devines in the auctions and private sales. If buying from the auctions you need a few million e. There were a couple of devine horses that you could get from sending your reinder from the north pole, some people also got them from buying cards.

You need to have at least 3 karma, and at least 2 howrses.

You can receive equus from a friend if they buy a horse from you. Ideally this will need to be done through the private sales unless you wan to run the risk of losing the horse to another bidder in the auctions. To access private sales you will need 3 karma points.

need to know year miles and if it has title not sales receipt i am buying a 1980 cb250 with title for 200

IN some states yes, the purchaser must pay a sales tax to the vehicle registration office. Call your local vehicle registration office and ask this question in your area. They will gladly tell you the answer, and if they do charge, ask them how they calculate the fee.

No, but you can reserve it in the private sales for 500e! If you need any help, PM me, my username isSIERRA GLEIM!

No. If in your private home. If in a public place (such as a bar) yes.

If the sale is via the internet and the California seller has no Illinois location, then no, you don't need to charge Illinois sales tax. You'll need to consult California tax law to know whether to charge him California tax, but probably don't need to charge it either. If the sale is in person in California, then yes, you should charge him California sales tax. If the sale is via the phone you could probably get away with calling it an internet sale and skip the tax, although it depends more on California tax law than Illinois tax law.

Buying a used RV is very much like buying a used car. You need to find one that will be a good size for your family, and that gets acceptable gas milage, has minimal wear and tear, etc.

Assuming the $259 price tag is with sales tax, we still couldn't answer the question - we'd need to know what the sales tax rate is where you're buying it/looking at it is. If it was, say, a 7% sales tax rate, then that would come out to $18.13 in sales tax, so the price without it would be $240.87.

You should have a written sales agreement when buying real estate. The sales agreement should honestly spell out the cost, terms, and precisely what's covered and what is not included within the sale. The sales agreement is a legal report that offers you legal recourse if troubles should arise after the sale.

Buy them from the sales, you would probably need a few million e if buying from the auctions or 15-20 passes if buying form the PS. Also howrse sometimes has promos where you can win them in a HOP or by buying howrse cards. Also add me on howrse, im AMMMYAMMMY :)

Probably not. You paid sales tax in Oregon when the car was purchased. When moving to California you didn't have to pay sales tax on all your other possessions, did you? You'll probably have to pay a tax on the car's value when registering it in CA. Probably not. You paid sales tax in Oregon when the car was purchased.

There are no specific responsibilities available as such for sales representatives however, they may need to focus on becoming discrete and responsible on how they act and persuade their customers into buying products.

Yes there is a way. the two players both have to have private sales, you need 3 karma points to acess it.

Yes, as a buyer in a private party vehicle sale, you will need to pay the use tax. Use tax is calculated based on the sales tax rate in your residence county. You can find more information on CA state vehicle registration at the following DMV.ORG - The Unofficial Guide to the DMV - page: Have a wonderful day, DMV.ORG Support

risponcebility of sales managers

No they do not. However if you buy one from a dealer you will need to do standard federal paperwork registering it from you. Not required for private party sales.

you can buy passes with money, but you can't change passes into moneyEdit:After buying passes you can't make them into real money again however you may be able to find players on the game who will buy them from you for equus.....for this however you need to have access to the Private Sales so you must have 3 Karma points or more
