Really??

Amendment XVI to the Constitution (Ratified February 3. 1913)

The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

I notice the OP has never even hinted at tax evasion, only a few nice people on this forum. Does it really take this many posts to debate the merits of criminal conduct? I like to think the vast majority of people who own and drive my favorite marque have the means and ethics to avoid the moral turpitude of tax evasion.

As Tony states in an earlier post, the parking garage in Manhattan is owned by Kenny Mance and I think it's called the Jamaican garage.

In MA, they stick you with book value, so there's no $100 cars from a sales tax perspective.

When going to register my car, I was mentally preparing myself for being hit with a huge tax, which would certainly just go on the credit card and force me to sit in the dark and eat ramen for the next few months. Lo and behold, there's a silver lining to living in a state where cranky old farts decide the elections. No private sales taxes in AZ!

All you coastal state schmucks trying to weasel your way out of Uncle Sam's dues need to pay unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar or move.

Here in CA. It's not called sales tax. It's called use tax.

Same in IL. If you buy from a private party there is a table that tells you what the use tax is. If you buy from a dealer the use tax just *happens to be* equivalent to the sales tax rate in your resident county

Maybe if they collected a few bucks, they could build there own wall using the labor already located behind bars. Good therapy looking back over the border wishing you'd never tried in the first place.

Since we're talking tax oddities when buying cars interstate, here's mine. This was a new car, my Evora 400, bought in Michigan, registered in Nashville, TN.

I decided to pick the car up in Detroit myself and then drive it home. I assumed I'd get a transfer plate in Michigan and register the car and pay taxes in Tennessee. But no. I was told I had to get Michigan's temporary 15 day registration and pay Michigan sales tax and then re-register the car in Nashville and pay any difference to Tennessee's DMV. TN's taxes are slightly higher by the way. In any case it all sounded odd to me since the car was immediately leaving Michigan bound for Nashville. I had assumed the sales taxes were collected by the buyer's state and not in the seller's state.

The Michigan process as it was explained to me by the dealer sounded more like buying lunch on a road trip rather than a car but I did the research and to my surprise I confirmed that this was the case from TN's DMV. I bought the car on that assumption but there was a glitch when I got home and went to register it. The clerk presented me with a $7000 bill instead of the $800 it was supposed to be. Turns out she had no idea how it worked but for several long moments I stood dumbfounded at her window while she consulted with her supervisor. Eventually they decided I didn't owe TN the bulk of the taxes after all. I felt pretty stupid for buying a new Lotus out of state for about ten minutes but it all worked out.

The laws are pretty patchwork within a relatively broad range. My experience suggests even the DMV workers are unclear what the rules are in what you'd think should be a straightforward, every day transaction.
