Do you pay sales tax on a car if it is a gift in new york?

you will have to pay the sales tax on the vehicle . if the gift giver doen't right the sale price dmv will charge for what the car books out for. so wht you want to due is have the bill of sale with a price on it for say 1000 so you only pay tax on the selling price.

Yes

You use form DTF 802 and you are exempt from sales tax, this is for a gift from a family member
