Depending on What City you live in Taxifornia aka California the state sales tax is 7.75% as of 1Oct2011. It can be as high as 8.75%.....then there are cities that add on for their bridges that go no where

Why not just take it to AAA?

Yep, I refused to take jobs in CA over just that fact.

I am a CA resident and have bought the last two moho's in AZ. The first one charged me AZ sales tax which was a smaller %age than CA's, so when I went to register it in CA they charged me the difference between the two sales tax rates. The second one, the dealer did not charge me tax, just gave me a temp AZ registration so when I went to DMV here, I just paid CA the sales tax on the purchase price.

DMV, depending on the clerk, may routinely tell you at the counter it needs a smog cert. I would have them run the VIN(they have a program for it) to check and see if it actually needs a smog cert. Mine is an 04 and didn't but I don't know about the new ones.

Really?

If it pays enough to consider taking, I wouldn't take taxation into account. Then again, I used to fly with a few guys making $200k/year who commuted to Nevada just to avoid tax...

To each his own... I'll take year round perfect weather & lifestyle over a few bucks any time. Don't own a raincoat & don't know what "winterizing" means.

I ended up registering the rv in CA. Pretty painless after all. Had to pay the difference in sales tax versus what I paid in AZ, no smog was required, just a vehicle inspection at the DMV. Glad it is done now.

Lets see: having to register my MH and toad in CA and pay sale tax again. Having to pay income tax in add'n to sales tax. Living in a state that doesn't recognize my right to self defense. High prices.

Just not worth it. Even for what I would have earned. I'd rather stay home and earn $80,000 a year rather than $150,000 in CA!

Yep, not everyone can handle it here.

Seriously, I love folks who bash CA, especially those who actually leave.

As a genuine native, third generation Californian, the one thing that's screwed my state more than anything are the immigrants. Not just from other countries, but equally those from other states. If ya weren't born here, don't surf here.

I'm looking at various possible retirement locations and my research indicates that for my collection of vehicles registration and taxes would be much higher in AZ than CA, mostly due to AZ's law basing taxes for new residents on the original MSRP of the vehicle regardless of its actual age.

Any one even remotely considering Kalifornia as a retirement location needs to do some more homework. My family has been here since the 1800's and I will NOT retire here. My kids have either left already or are making plans to do so. This state has gone completely nuts, with a $20 billion+ budget shortfall projected for as long as they can see and people leaving as fast as they can. 3.6 million net lose in population should tell you something as well as the ones that are leaving are the people the government needs to tax, any one making any kind of money at all. Unemployment, still almost 20%. It is the most unfriendly state in the country for business and it is now paying the price for their stupid policies. And setting aside the financial issues for a moment, it has the most restricting laws and regulations for using the land anywhere.

We just bought our first moho in Wisconsin. It cost $80.00 for registration, based on GVWR. Sure we had to pay the 5% sales tax but thats a hell of a lot cheaper than what the rest of the nation pays.
