If I live in Kansa but buy a car from a private party in Texas, how is sales tax calculated on the vehicle.

Oregon has no sales tax and no use tax, so the answer is no, you would not owe any use tax whether on a used car from a private party or a new car from a dealership.

That depends on whether the used car was purchased from a dealership or a private party. If it was purchased from a dealership, there is a vehicle use tax of .75%, which may be collected by the dealer at the time of purchase if the dealer is located in Cook County. If the tax is not collected at the time of purchase, you will receive a letter in the mail with instructions on how to pay the tax. If you purchase the vehicle from a private party, you may still receive a letter in the mail, but it also contains instructions on what documentation to send in to show that you do not need to pay the tax.

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.

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

If you buy a used car from a private party, you pay no sales tax, although you are legally supposed to report it. If you buy a used car from a dealer, you will pay sales tax.

No, but use tax will apply. What is use tax and how is it calculated?

User Avatar

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.

Yes, in Michigan you will pay sales tax on everything purchased, private or not, except food and water.

User Avatar

You will pay the tax when you register the vehicle in your name.

If you purchase from a private owner then no. If purchased from a dealer then yes.

User Avatar

Yes, but not to the private party. The tax is collected by the MVD when you register and title it in your name. When you buy from a registered dealer (who handles all the MVD stuff for you) you pay it to the dealer.

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.

Sales tax is on the purchase price not the value.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

zero percent if bought from private party. %8 if from dealer or business.

User Avatar

You would pay 6.25 percent (in 2012) regardless of who you bought the car from and whether you are even a resident of MA. 6.25 percent of 10,000 is 625. However, the tax is assessed on the Bluebook value, not the purchase price.

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.

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%.

User Avatar

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

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.

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.
