We live in MI. Purchased our MH in Mesa, AZ. Dealer drove our MH to Lordsburg, NM to avoid AZ taxes. Paid MI taxes when we transferred title from AZ to MI. We saved 3% in taxes on a +$70K purchase. We were charged about $300 for the driver.

Arizona has some pretty funky sales tax laws. One of them is what is referred to as a "Transaction Privilege Tax" and it is technically not a sales tax. Their TPT as they refer to it, is on the seller and it is for the privilege of doing business in Arizona. The way I read it, the seller has to pay that tax regardless of where the buyer lives. In other words, technically you are not paying sales tax but the dealer is paying the tax. That means that you will probably still be liable for the sales taxes in your home state. This makes the delivery to NM a logical step to avoid the TPT in Arizona.

I've purchased two MHs in Texas, a 5th wheel in OK, a pull behind in MO and two boats in Texas...and have registered them in two different states. In all cases, the states where they were registered is to whom I paid the tax. BTW, none were registered in Texas or MO.

Arizona is 'unique'. Giving the OP all this information about other states is not going to help him when buying in Arizona.

The above post by wnytaxman has it right.

I agree, that is why I posted the Internet site for the AZ DMV. Also, if it were me, I'd simply call my home state's DMV office and get them to explain how the transaction would work. When I bought my MH from TX, my DMV here in Indiana told me exactly what should happen within the transaction.

Az also has a form that we had to fill out and sign that said motorhome was not being purchased for use in Az and if brought back into state permanently within a year all sales tax would be due. We took delivery in Ca, paperwork notorized in Ca and the dlr also tooka picture in front of post office in Ca to cya. We live in Nv and there is no reciproty ith Nv. We then paid sales tax at dmv when we registered it. Even if there is reciproty sales tax in your home state could be lower than Az so it would be worth it.

From experience I can tell you that sales tax laws are like fingerprints....no two are alike. From the OP's perspective, all that matters is what his home state and purchasing state has for sales tax laws. What may be the case for Texas or California or New York may not even be remotely related to what the Original Poster may be facing with his sales tax issues.

I purchased new in NY. I live in PA.

I paid no tax in NY. NY gave me an "intransit permit" to drive the motorhome out of NY. I had the Certificate of Origin for both the CHASSIS (Workhorse) and COACH (Winnebago). I registered in PA and paid the PA tax. PA took both Certs of Origin and issued me a PA title.

Once again it appears you two were right!

I was lucky that LaMesa was willing to deliver to Albuquerque.

The dealer is telling you the truth. AZ is one of those states that does things differently. If you buy it in AZ you pay AZ sales tax and your home sales tax.

I live in WV and bought my current fiver in KY. Dealer delivered unit in WV due to a quirky KY state tax code. Dealer would have to collect both WV and KY sales tax if I pulled unit off their lot. He said what happened was some KY folks were buying units and claiming that they would be registered in another state. But they were actually taking them to permanent sites in KY and not bothering to do anything with the registration.

Here's what may or may not be an issue for an out of state purchase. I bought our current MH from a friend who also lives in Kentucky, but had it registered and licensed in North Carolina. When I called the local county clerk for details to register in KY, they said an inspection was required by the state fire marshal's office. My local RV dealer was happy to do this for $150, but a call to the fire marshal office brought an inspector to my driveway where he performed the inspection for $35.

The inspection was for fire extinguisher, smoke detector, and LP/Propane gas detector.
