Thanks for all your responses. The DMV calculator is exactly the information I was looking for. I sure wish the old 90 day rule still applied, I'd take a long vacation and surcumvent the taxes, thanks Arnold for making it a year now!

"Having A Blast".....No need to look into it. Minor purchases use sales tax where purchased. A large purchase like a boat, car or motor home, are based on where you live and the vehicle will be registered. If your dealer charged you a higher sales tax, than where you live, he's a crook, since this is not something they guess at when registering a vehicle. They owe you money.

The registration also drops 10% a year until it reaches 15% of the original fee/price.

Understand about bailing and taking virtual (or otherwise) residency in FL, TX, or SD. However we have our S&B in California, so that is the basis for our residency. It is what it is.

I agree, our house and all our Kids and Grandkids are in California, and we all live within a few miles of each other. It would take a lot more than a one time sales tax and registration fees to move out of California. There are actually a lot of states that are much higher than California when it comes to Vehicle tax and license.

While that may technically be true (I'm not sure) it would mean that you're not transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. There is no way I would purchase a vehicle and leave the title in the previous owner's name for up to a year.

Sorry to confuse...I was mentioning this option for an RV that was purchased and registered outside CA, and which was later brought to CA with current registration by that same owner - NOT a change of owner.

Safe travels
