Also remember, Texas has NO personal property tax so the sales tax is the only "TAX" you will pay on the MH.

Exactly.

Hey, first of all, texas is collecting on taxes that was purchased out of state!! #2. No I am not married but have a wonderful female partner that put up half of the money to purchase the coach. But The state is licensed the coach. Not the people driving the coach, they are required to have a license of their own. There is no reason to require a person that will not drive to have insurance to get the coach registered!! And that was the goal!! resister it in Texas. Or should I say Van Zandt county, TX.

Anytime you register a vehicle in Texas for the first time, you will pay sales tax. Did you also pay sales tax in the state where it was purchased? It could be that you can get a refund on that...I'm not sure how that works. The good news is, sales tax is a one-time hit and you can claim it on your next year's income taxes.

I believe the insurance requirement is because the state requires the owner(s) to have insurance before the vehicle can be registered. Since there are two owners showing on the title, both must be insured.

If for example, a man & wife have a small trucking company. The wife runs the office. Is she to have a class #1. licenses to own a truck? If you buy a product out of state, UPS it in to your address, are you paying taxes on the product? Somedbody show me the logic??

TrampsRV: Because she can't see that well any more. You don't have to own something and be required to operate it. Leasing companies own 100's of cars, are they required to be licensed to operate everyone? Get real!!

Here in WA you owe taxes on the property being brought into the state. It's called "use tax" and is equal to the sales tax you would have paid had you bought it in state. Probably the same in TX.
Sounds like part of the OP's "problems" are not understanding the law and having the right forms with them when they arrived.

If you want a real run around at the county tax office, try Harris county. I honestly think they will not hire anyone with an IQ of over about 50.

Another problem is the state site does not always have the latest forms available on line.

I just bought a new RV in Florida (I am a Texas resident). I told them up front that I was titling the RV in Texas. Evidently Florida has a reciprocal agreement with Texas, so I paid the sales tax here and when I sent in my registration form to Texas I only had to pay the difference between the two taxes. When you filled out the VTR 130-U did you put in the amount that you paid as sales tax when you bought it?

Great, on what line of the form 1040 do I enter the tax if I use the standard deduction? I know you can if you itemize and it is added to the state tax computation.

WA treats it the same way, if you can prove you paid taxes in another state and how much then you get credit for that amount and only pay on the difference. Sales/Use tax in WA can be very close to 10% in the Seattle area.

If you trade a vehicle in to a dealer you only owe tax on the difference so it sometimes doesn't pay to sell it yourself.

That could be a "maybe" as the credit has to be authorized by the IRS code, WA's has to be approved each year although they were trying to make it permanent.
