Now, I can see DMV coming back to me later, but then I can show all the out of state activity with a BOE-106 application (for the BOE-111) and possibly argue that the 12-month period wasn't met simply because I sold it in 8 months...dunno about that part yet. But the nice lady in Sac was quite clear that this would work.

How is "putting the title in your name" (on a California Title) different from buying the rig- which according to my understanding of sales tax rules is what triggers the tax?????

As to THIS issue - I have assurances that I am not liable for the taxes, and that the dealership I want to sell to would not be at ANY risk for them either, and a professional has SHOWN them this truth, yet they won't take the risk? They are at NO risk, yet they are about to kill a 100k sale - still want me to weep for California???!!

I bought my RV, paid my taxes, and register it every year. How stupid of me. It would be neighborly for you to do the same. Just sayin'

First let me say I don't live in California, I live in Colorado. A couple years ago they caught a bunch of people who live here who in order to save money on taxes registered their RV's in Montana. They made them pay all the back taxes at once for sales and registration taxes. Not good. Why don't you just pay the tax, if you can afford to buy a high dollar Motor home, you can pay the tax. Why should everyone else have to carry you? I just hate it when people try to work the laws, so they don't carry their own weight. It is not nice. I hope you get it right, and stand tall.
