No, you've already paid taxes on it when you bought it, so the one buying it from you is the one who will pay the sales tax.

online, car dealership or a private seller!

The best way to find a used car from a private seller in any city is through your local classifieds. Also try or and search by your area.

was there a guarantee or was it sold as is?

Any private seller would save you the sales tax

If you are a GA resident, you do not have to pay sales tax as long is it is a private seller, even if out of state private seller.

Yes! the reason is because taxes have to be assessed for the value of the vehicle for registration purposes

Taxes are paid in California at the time you register the car with the Department Of Motor Vehicles. You do not pay tax to the person you are buying from.

it depends on the county that the car is being register at. For example Miami dade is 7%, broward county 6%, monroe county 7.5% and palm beach 6.5%, so you need to what county it is. Also if youa re buying from a dealer, they collect the taxes, so you pay them but if it is a private seller you must taxes at the tag agency, not the seller!

In a used car yard or private seller, or a car collector

Yes, a person does have to pay sales tax on a used car purchased from a private seller in Pennsylvania. The amount of tax is 6 percent of the sale price.

After a car sale, a private party can return the car within thirty days. This return policy is dependent on the individual seller.

Sales taxes and ownership taxes are assessed by cities, counties, and states. Most often the taxes on a new or used car sale are based on where you currently live, not always on where you buy your car. Almost always, the buyer of the car pays the sales taxes, not the seller.

No you don't pay taxes to an individual, only a dealer. You will pay the sales tax at the dmv when you go to register the vehicle.

When you go to transfer title from the seller to you, all taxes will be collected at that time. In my state the answer is yes, you will pay sales tax.

No.... The time to check a car out is before you buy. Unless otherwise agreed to a purchase from a private seller is typically AS IS so buyer beware.

If the car was running good when purchased, and was sold "as is", then not much. If it wasn't sold "as is" try to get your money back from the seller. If this doesn't work, you'll have to take it to Small Claims Court.
