Full timing in Texas

Does anyone know what the sales tax rate is in Polk County Texas so I can determine the difference we have to pay between PA and TX for our truck and trailer. Also is it based on purchase price or blue book value at the time of Texas registration.

Anyone out there been through this?

Texas state vehicle tax is 6.25%. License plate fees determined by the vehicle(s) registered. Counties impose a county road & bridge fee and a title fee, under $20 each IIRC. I'm not familiar with Polk County so there may be additional small fees. You will need a bill of sale receipt or they will use an assumptive value. Also if your receipt value is under the assumptive value they will use the higher value. For precise numbers you can call the Polk County Tax Assessor and ask for the motor vehicle department.

Thank you. Your reply is very helpful. I already paid 6% so it is good to know the difference is only .25%.
