Sales Tax On Purchase Of Used Motorhome Between States
Posted 23 September 2010 - 07:22 PM
For example: If I purchase the motorhome in FL and then drive it to NC, do I have to pay sales tax in FL and NC also, or should I have the owner drive the MH to NC and possibly pay just a sales tax in NC. NC kills you no matter what you do. I just want to avoid paying taxes in two states if possible.
Any help or previous experiences will be appreciated.

The state you need to be concerned about is North Carolina. For Florida, all you need is the bill of sale, current title (with release of any lien holders) and your NC drivers license. Tell Florida your are taking the coach to NC. You'll need to purchase a FLA temporary tag. This is to get you to NC.
This is from the NC DMV site:
"North Carolina collects a 3% Highway Use Tax on vehicles in lieu of a state sales tax (General Statute 105-187.2). The tax is assessed each time a title is transferred. The maximum tax for commercial vehicles (vehicles with a weight greater than 26,000 pounds) is $1,000.00. All other vehicles are charged 3% with no ceiling.
For a more detailed explanation of the Highway Use Tax (HUT) you can view our Vehicle Titling & Registration: Highway Use Tax Section."
Please consider going to the North Carolina web site or calling the DMV with questions about your transaction.

I do no know the rules in NC; In Ga if you buy a used RV from an individual, there is no sales tax; However, if you buy in Ga and travel to reg. the unit in NC, you would be under NC rules!!!
Hope the Tax info helps.

I used the following site to set up my Montana RV LLC and then took care of the RV registration myself. Now if you don't live in Montana or you're buying from another state, you should check with your Department of Revenue and/or DMV to make sure you're staying above board. My CPA recommended this because he had gone the same route a couple of years before...for what it's worth ;-)
