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.

No, as of 2005 Nevada does not tax private-party vehicle sales, but only if the buyer is a legal resident of the state.

The sales tax on a camper from a private party in the state of Minnesota will depend upon how much the camper is being purchased for. In 2013, the sales tax rate is 6.875%.

Nevada residents do not pay sales tax on privately purchased used cars when purchased in NV. However, I can find nothing at the DMV site that describes an out of state private purchase scenario, so you will have to call the DMV in NV to get them to clarify it.

yes and no. If you purchase a used car from a dealer, yes you pay tax. If you purchase the car from a private seller, you don't have to pay sales tax.

Depends on the state you are in. Pick up your phone book and call the state motor vehicle dept office in your town, or in some states the county clerk does it, or here in NH it's the town clerk. In GA, you don't pay sales tax if a private party; only dealer sales are subject to sales tax. Or maybe they closed that loophole by now.

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.

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.

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.

Yes, when you transfer the vehicle to your name, you will pay the taxes in the state you register the vehicle in.

Normally in a state that has sales tax whether you buy from a dealer or private party, you have to pay the sales tax to get the car registered. For more real answers for a real world go to http\\www.credityes.com. If credityes.com is not in your area call your local dealer and ask why?

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.

Sales tax is the tax added to items you purchase. The sales tax varies depending on the state you are making the purchase in.

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.

As of January 2008, the state sales tax rate in Missouri is 4.255%. Multiply the vehicle price by the tax rate to obtain the total being charged. If the sale is from a private party that is not a business, the seller will not collect sales tax, but the buyer will pay the tax when the car is licensed.

There is no sales tax involved in transferring a car. However, If you purchase it in Louisiana, you have to pay their sales tax.

You should ONLY pay the sales taxes etc. in the state where the vehicle is registered.

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."

Just checked with Tax and Tag office in Grady County (Cairo Georgia) and the answer is no. You only have to pay tax if the purchase is from a dealer.

This depends on where you are. There is no Federal sales tax, but there are state and local taxes in some places. Usually it is a percentage of the purchase price.
