Sales Tax

I plan on registering new motorhome in PA. We are purchasing it in Florida. Why does the dealer collect only 50% of the sales tax?

That does sound strange. I'm betting that Florida probably has some sort of law requiring it when the vehicle is being taken out of state. Then, PA will probably hit you with the rest when you go to register it there. I do think PA will give you credit for the tax you paid to FLA.

Best of luck.

Hmmmm not sure how that is supposed to work. When we purchased our MH at Lazy Days we paid the full 6% Florida sales tax. When we registered the MH in Indiana we paid the additional 1% of Indiana sales tax.

Florida has reciprocal sales tax with many states. The dealer in Florida will usually only collect your state sales tax, leaving you to pay any other county or local taxes when you register in that state. If it is a reciprocal with Florida, your previous amount paid in Florida is "credited" to your registration. Make sure you have all your documents with you when you to register.

When I bought a TT in Pa, (we live in NY) the dealer added the NYS sales tax to the price of the unit for financing purposes, then cut me a check in the amount of the NYS sales tax payable to NYS so that when I registered the unit I had a check in hand to pay the taxes with.
