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.

I think the answer is yes. Check out the sales tax section here:

No you don't pay taxes to an individual, only a dealer. You will pay the sales tax at the dmv when you go to register the vehicle.

Yes. You will pay them when you register the car at the DMV. Pretty lame. Double taxation.

Yes! the reason is because taxes have to be assessed for the value of the vehicle for registration purposes

Any private seller would save you the sales tax

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.

Yes. When buying a car from a private seller, the purchaser should get a signed bill of sale from the seller, which includes the sale price and identifying information about the vehicle, including the Vehicle Information Number. The purchaser then reports the sale price when registering and titling the car, using the Department of Motor Vehicle's Form DTF-802. Sales tax is paid at that time.

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.

You will pay sales tax where you register the vehicle. Last time I checked Florida has sales tax...

When the sold items are returned back to the seller by the customer then, it is Sales Return for the seller.

If you are the "private" seller you do not collect sales tax. If your states requires sales tax to be paid on a private sell then the DMV will collect it when the buyer registers the car.

NO. But you will pay sales tax when you tag and transfer title. Based on the value of car... not the actual sales price

The sales tax rate in Illinois depends on whether the car is purchased from a private party or a dealer. Assuming the private party transaction the tax amount depends on the year of the vehicle. All 2012 and newer models are taxed at the flat rate of $390 according to the Illinois Department of Revenue.

It differs by county local dmv shoud have that

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!!

The current total local sales tax rate in Champaign County, IL is 7.5%

There is no sales tab in the private sales? :$

Not necessarily but some states require you do so. My son moved to NC with a free car and had to pay sales tax.

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.

One of my buddies bought a car in GA and he ended up paying for sales tax. I'm not sure if it applies for all.
