Sales Tax advice

Please help me. I have ordered, and in 2 months, I will be purchasing a 2021 Class A. I live in a particular State but, because of a franchising agreement, I have ordered the Coach through a dealer in another State and will take delivery of it in that dealerís State.

Itís an all cash purchase.

How do I pay sales tax and register the Coach?

It's going to depend on your state laws. In some states you pay the sales tax at the time you register it in that state, not in the purchasing state.

If you live in WA and buy out of state the dealer collects the WA use tax and sends the WA DMV a check for the tax and other fees along with the required paperwork. The buyer is not permitted to carr the paperwork to the DMV either.

There are probably combinations where you would have to pay in both states, so this is something to figure out beforehand. In Washington the sales tax is 10.1% in many areas, so that could be a huge mistake to make!

Yes States have different ways of dealing with it. Normally that would be a discussion held with the delivering dealer at the time of order as it can be a rather large problem/surprise! Some states require you to pay the delivering states sales tax on delivery then get a Credit (maybe) if any when you register in your home state. others will handle it for you and send the tax to the appropriate state with your closing. CALL the dealer as I'm sure they have the answer you seek. "Depends" is the answer you'll get here because as I said ea state handles it differently. Most states pay tax at registration... but YMMV

The tax you are responsible for are in the state/county where you LIVE not where you buy it.

Many times the dealer will give you temp plates to get you back "home" where you will then register it.

If not then the dealer will collect and pay the taxes again based on where you live and then they will forward the payment to your home state.

Both coaches we bought over the last 4 years were out of state purchases and both times we got a temp tag (one dealer wanted to pay the tax for us but we were heading "home" anyway) and there were no problems at all.

I should also add this year we bought a new car and the dealer in TX collected our FL taxes for us.

Youíll pay whatever the sales tax of the state youíre buying it in. If there is no sales tax or it is less than the sales tax where you live you will pay the difference when you register the RV in your state.

This should answer the OP's question.

It depends on the State you are purchasing in and the State you are registering in. When I bought my 5th wheel in Dallas TX I was still a resident of CA. The selling dealer collected the sales tax for CA, gave me a 60 day temp for TX and when I returned to CA I went to DMV where they verified the VIN and gave me my CA plates. When I bought my Class A in Phoenix AZ I was a full timer and domicled in SD. The selling dealer gave me a 60 day temp tag, and had to drive across the border to Blythe CA to hand over the keys. I mailed in the paperwork and a check for the sales tax to SD who mailed me the plates. When I bought my Jeep tow vehicle in Bosie ID the selling dealer collected the sales tax for SD and SD mailed me the plates.

Re AZ When I looked at as a couple years ago if you take del in AZ you pay AZ tax .. period. Weather you get a credit from your own state depends on if your state does some don’t. You will then pay tax in both states.
The work around IN AZ is delivery out of state just over the border.
As I noted earlier all the answers are wrong .. or right ... depending on the state and no help to the OP call the DEALER !

That's not necessarily true. I know Washington has tightened up on out of state buyers, but I'm not sure of the specific current rules regarding vehicles. But I can tell you if you walk into a store in Washington and buy a TV you will pay sales tax here.

This is how it's been handled for me on 3 vehicle purchases I have made in Oregon. As Oregon has no sales tax I paid WA state & local taxes based on county/city of my residence when I registered the vehicles.

Not familiar with how other states handle it.

Contact the dealer and ask them for the information you are seeking. They should be able to help you here. Also, contact your state as well as the state where the purchase is made to get the best information.
