Be careful! As long as the car is titled to a private owner, NO you don't have to pay sales tax. But we made a huge mistake! Thought we were buying from a private individual but he put the title in his privately owned company name and now we have to pay sales tax. A fact the OWNER should have disclosed!!

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, 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.

You pay the tax at the county tax office upon registering the vehicle. See link below for information.
