Hey guys,just an informal survey here for TDS buyers...Did you pay tax on the full purchase price or on the "used car value" at the time of registration? <P>

If you meet the above conditions, then your tax gets lowered a little but your car will be titles as "pre-owned" and that will reflect upon its value later.<P>Either way they get you! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Yannis<P><P>

Actually, I believe in California if the car is outside the state for more than 3 to 6 months then there isn't any sales tax at all when you bring it in. I, of course, couldn't wait that long, so I paid the tax when the car was purchased. But if you know someone you can leave the car with overseas, leave it with them and just go back 6 months later and drop it off at the shipping center.<P>This law was effected when folks brought in their cars into the state that were owned by their immediate families--there were so many complaints that they allowed the 'used' car to come in tax-free. Find a state that will do that and you'll save a mint!!
