I don't think you're responsible for the taxes in the state of purchase. For example, in California, you can buy the car out of state without paying taxes. But, when you register the car in CA, you pay sales tax on the purchase price. Another reason it sucks to live in California.

Done it many times. You don't pay tax in the state you purchase the car unless you take delivery there from a dealer. As you know there is no sales tax on cars purchased from an individual seller to an individual buyer in GA. Buy the car, drive it back, and when you take the paperwork in they will see it's individual to individual and you will pay no tax. That's assuming GA has not changed it's tax laws since I left in 2011.

out of state

GA has changed it tax, all car sales are taxed @ 7-8% depending what county you live in they don't call it a sales tax its a registration fee , even between individuals . so if you bring a car into GA its 7-8% to get tag and register . the dealers got this through to screw individual selling cars, even applies to family members but reduce to 2% . so if you just brought car paid seals tax in your state and move to GA. your handed a 7-8% bill. Thanks for the response didn't want to pay out of state tax then get hosed by GA.

Some states have reciprocal agreements with other states to collect their sales taxes at purschase.Example. If you are from California and buy a car from Ohio, you pay California state taxes at your purchase in Ohio. Same goes for Michigan &Ohio.
