The bank holds a lien on the title of the vehicle. If you default on the payments, they can reposses it. This is a civil issue, and is handled as such. Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle is a criminal charge which doesn't apply to a civil situation.

You will not be refunded. If the transaction takes place in Texas, you will pay Texas sales tax appropriate to that county. If a Texan were purchase an auto in Okla, they would pay Okla taxes. Fair is fair. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I was under the impression you only pay sales tax to the state in which you register a vehicle. If the dealer got you an Okla. registration no harm done. If not show the sales tax receipt to the motor vehicle clerk when you register the vehicle or they will charge you tax too, and if they do the dealer had no right to charge you and you should demand a refund. yes u should ======================== The first answer is correct. If you buy a vehicle out of the state you reside, you do have the option to buy the vehicle on a temporary tag and then pay the taxes and register the vehicle when you return home. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If you purchase a vehicle in Texas for use exclusively outside of Texas you are not required to pay Texas motor vehicle sales tax. You must also complete the Texas Motor Vehicle Sales Tax Exemption Certificate. (Texas Administrative Code / Title 34 / Part 1 / Chapter 3 / Subchapter F / Rule ยง3.90) Basically, if you are a resident of another state and buy a vehicle in Texas, you do not have to pay the 6.25% Texas motor vehicle sales tax.

Yes, there are lesser offenses with which you could be charged. Have your attorney speak with the prosecutor and see if the prosecutor will plea bargain it to a lesser offense in exchange for your guilty plea (IF you are truly guilty).If you plan on pleading not guilty don't bother thinking of plea bargaining.

Once charged in Texas, there is no limit. A statute of limitations only applies before any DUI charges are brought.

Yes. A charge off does not mean that the debt is not still valid and subject to collection by any means available to the lender.

Legally, only one. But your contract will tell you more.

You will have to have insurance on the vehicle to drive in Texas any way you go about it. Texas is a state that has mandatory insurance coverage. The owner of the vehicle needs to add you as a driver and give them your license information. Most insurance companies do not charge anyone additional premium for a person with a learners permit. I assume your laws are that you can only drive with a licensed driver in the vehicle whenever you drive.

The law does not cover used motor vehicles, repossessed vehicles, non-travel trailers, boats or farm equipment. Neither does it cover vehicles with problems caused by the owner's abuse, neglect or unauthorized changes to the vehicle

First off, if you are military / U.S. Armed Forces, you are not required to register your vehicle in Texas.Out-of-State vehicle titles are generally valid in Texas for 30 days from the date the vehicle entered the state or the date listed by the owner, whichever is more accurate- when the vehicle is going to stay in Texas and not "passing through". Before getting a Texas title the vehicle must pass inspection AND all information and documentation on the vehicle should be taken to a county tax office or approved substation where the registration fee can be assessed and paid. New residents in the state must pay a "new resident fee" of $90 and must pay forAfter this, when your Texas-titled car is transferred, you need to "inform the state of Texas Department of Transportation" (TxDOT) by filing the a Vehicle Transfer Notification online of by mail.Registration of Texas-titled vehicles must be completed once per year in the state of Texas.Sources:http://www.dmv.tx.gov/vehicles/drivers/new_residents.htmhttps://vision21.txdot.gov/Vehicle/MainTransferNotification.aspx

state inspections are free if the vehicle is deemed salvage. Salvage vehicle are required to undergo a safety check by the state highway patrol before being titled.

A Texas Comptroller works for the government that works with organization and finances. They are in charge of bookkeeping and are also in charge of creating programs for budgets.

Is it a pending charge for a felony or a felony conviction? If so, then no. Not in Texas, nor in any other state.

No, its a Civil matter. Law Enforcement deals in Criminal Law, not Civil Law.
