Texas sales tax if bought out of the state?

I'm looking at a unit located in Florida, but I reside in Texas.

The FL. dealer is telling me "You'll pay us 6% sales tax, but Florida is reciprocal with Texas, so when you get back to Texas to register it, you'll only pay Texas the difference between 6% and 6.25%"

Fact or fiction?

In theory yes, but not all states are reciprical, and a dealer may tell you that and be lying. Then you get back to your home state and they claim the state you bought the item in never sent them the tax. This actually happened to us when we bought a commercial van in South Carolina and we took it back to Indiana. However, we've bought in Illinois and done the same thing and the tax got paid to Indiana and no problems. So just be careful.

Fact. We did the same thing. Bought from a dealer in FL, paid FL tax, then paid the difference when we registered it.

I've done the same thing "in reverse" twice now. Bought a MH at MHSRV in Texas and registered it in N Carolina, then another one registered in S Dakota. Both times the dealer charged me the other State's sales tax and sent it to the out of state DMV. They accidentally overcharged me for NC tax, when I went to register the MH I got an unexpected refund check.

Just a question here, what do they do if your register it to a LLC? That has no sales tax?

Plasma, have purchased several vehicles out of state, have always only had to pay the difference back here in Texas. On several occasions, when registering, showed them I had already paid sales tax, they did not charge me the difference(which there was one), just marked off as paid.

Palehorse, when you buy a vehicle, it does not matter if it is in your name or an entity name(LLC, C Corp, LP, LTD, etc.) each state wants their cut on sales tax when you register it, unless you are registering it in a NO-Sales Tax state. The tax department only looks at the transaction itself, not the entity involved in the transaction.

If registered in Montana through a LLC ( or another non-sales tax state) , there would be no sales tax to pay when buying it in another state.....correct? (Within the guide lines)
(I made a mistake on the state of the LLC -SD)

Live in MI, bought in TX

Hello,

We live in MI and just bought a MH in TX. The dealership in TX sent us the title, and a paper about sales tax needing to be paid in MI when we license the MH. We will do that on Wed. when we pick up the license.

I called the MI SOS to make sure this was right so maybe calling your SOS would give you an accurate answer to this question.

Good luck!

We bought in OR (no sales/use tax) but the finance people worked with the WA Dept of Revenue (almost 10% use tax) and figured out the tax right down to the $5 "donation" for State Parks. They handled the whole thing including sending the check to the local DMV office.

We bought in Kansas and registered in Illinois we signed an affidavit that the rig was being taken out of state then paid full state and local tax before we could title and tag it in IL.

I guess each state handles it a little differently BUT it in each case it seems to get handled.

I was told this info from a dealer that already sounded greasy, so I just wanted to confirm he wasn't THAT greasy.

Have you narrowed your choices down to what you are going to buy Jay?
