Calif. will currently waive sales tax on a motorhome purchased out of state that does not enter the state basically for 91 days. I , a calif. resident purchased a new motorhome from a dealer in Arizona and it is now parked in a Nevada RV park. We will live and travel in it for the ammount of time it takes to fulfill the exemption. Problem, we have a 30 day operating permit which will expire 2 months prior to the 90 days. Has anyone out there utilized this exemption and if so, how did you keep your rig legal for out of state travel?

Did you pay sales tax in Arizona? If you did, check with California and see if they will give you credit for the amount of sales tax you paid in Arizona. I believe Arizona sales tax is as much, if not more, than sales tax in California.

Does the 91 day rule apply to getting a tag. I bet if you call Calif DMV they can tell you it is okay to get the tag, just do not bring back into the state for 91 DAYS S/Toby

If you had a trade in, I've been told that CA will charge you tax on the full purchase price, whereas when I bought my rig in Arizona, the sales tax was only on the price after the trade in had been subtracted.

If you did not have a trade in, then the taxes will probably be comparable.

Hmmmm....wonder why California would be benevolent for ANY kind of tax liability...maybe they are afraid of another "tea party"???

I doubt it, one thing California politicans have never been shy about is sticking their hand in your pocket.......
