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.

I am an Oklahoma resident who bought a car in Texas They charged me Texas Sales Tax should I get that refunded because I am NOT a Texas resident?

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 §3.90) 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.
