I don't think so, you pay the sales tax when you register the car. So you would only pay once, unless you registered it in both states.

Where can you buy a gun without a license?

In the US, firearms sales are regulated by federal and state laws. There is no "license" required to purchase firearms under federal law. Sales between private individuals are not regulated by Federal law, so a person can purchase a firearm privately from another individual. HOWEVER, state laws vary and must be complied with, and some states require a permit to purchase a handgun whether from a private party or from a dealer. Sales of firerms from a dealer are regulated and require a background check called a NICS check. This is a one time process per purchase and the record of the check are not kept permananetly, or not supposed to be kept. so, a firearm can pbe purchased from anyone, there is no 'license", and state laws should be observed.

Do you have to pay sales tax when purchasing a used car from a private party seller in California?

No you do not. Sales tax is what businesses use to pay to the state. It's the "state's share" on a taxable item. A private party seller is not a business, so legally they cannot charge a sales tax. For example they cannot sell a car for $2,000 plus tax. However, you WILL have to pay a use tax when you go to the DMV to register your vehicle. The use tax is basically the same exact rate as sales tax. The state will tax you anyway they can.

Is sales tax deducted from your paycheck?

Many taxes are deducted from your paycheck, but sales tax is not one of them. Sales taxes are collected by a merchant at the point of purchase of most goods and some services. The merchant remits the sales taxes to the state on your behalf. Occasionally, you many not pay sales taxes at the time of purchase, as in when you make a purchase online from a merchant in another state. In those cases, you would owe a use tax to your state which is usually paid when filling out your annual state income tax return.

Do i need to pay car sales tax in California buying from a private?

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."
