Sales Tax for non Residents

I plan on buying a class A in the fall. Living in Nevada I can buy from another Nevada private party with no sales tax. What are the rules in surrounding states for a non resident buyer? CA, OR, ID, AZ, NM, UT? Thanks.

You pay no sales tax on vehicles in NV?

Assuming you intend to register it in your home State of Nevada, those are the rules you'd need to know. Oregon has no sales tax so no tax to that State but when you go to register it in Nevada you'll likely be assessed the tax just as if you bought it there. All other States you mention will collect/keep sales tax according to their local rates UNLESS you're immediately removing it from their States for registration/payment of sales taxes in your own.

Side note per Oregon:

While no one pays sales tax there, it's also a fact that they're very strict per requiring that only lawful Oregon residents can licence/register vehicles within their system.

Most states will assess sales tax when you go to register the vehicle. If you are purchasing vehicle in another state, most will let you 'escape' without paying tax, because the know your home state will be collecting. Check on the state in which you plan to purchase and make sure you get proper documentation for Nevada's requirements.

Same page you found that at probably answers your other question- looks like if you buy from a dealer in ANY State, you'll have to pay sales tax on the purchase price. I s'pose this is meant to prevent the RV business in Nevada from drying up and blowing away...

Private Party sales in any State look to be exempt, at least from Nevada taxation.

Here quoting from Nevada DMV

Quote:
Nevada Dealer Sales - Taxes are paid to the dealer based on the actual purchase price.

Out-of-State Dealer Sales - The DMV will verify whatever taxes were paid and charge any difference between that amount and what would have been due on a Nevada dealer sale.

Private Party Sales, Family Sales and Gifts - Sales on or after January 1, 2006, are not subject to sales taxes. On private sales that occurred in 2005 or earlier, sales taxes were paid to the DMV based either on the depreciated Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) or a vehicle appraisal. (NRS 374.112)

I live in Illinois and have purchased 2 MH in Florida. The first MH was from a private party. When I registered in Il. I paid $1500 in sales tax. Thats the tax for any used MH that costs over $30,000. The second used MH was from a dealer who added a base sales tax required by Il. which has a reciprocal agreement with Il. I paid a small increase to the base tax when I registered in Il. about 7% total. After gettting my price on the used MH I told the dealer I wanted 7% off that price because I could buy from a private party and only pay $1500. They agreed and cut the price accordingly.

I bought my Newmar from a California dealer, but we drove over to border to Reno to do the deal and had it notarized there (in a Casino Parking lot with a mobile notary). Then I drove home to Texas (they got the sales tax).

A Nevada resident can also buy from another state's private seller and not have to pay sales tax.
I did just that= no sales tax.

mike, please call dmv for the tax thing. to my knowledge they do charge a hefty service tax, based on msrp when new, factored by age, not how much the price you paid.
