Buying car from different state - info

Post by adamek_ladi on Mon Oct 27, 2008 6:28 pm

I have struggled pretty bad with the DMV here, so I postponing this email I have received from DMV in Mass, so you can get some ideas how to do that and save yourself bunch of struggles at the DMV, because the clerks are not informed at all.

Dear Ladislav Adamek:

Normally, you would pay the required state tax to your home state or the
registering state of the vehicle if the vehicle is garaged in a state
other than your home state. However, if the registering owner's motor
vehicle or trailer was purchased from another state within the last 6
months, sales tax was collected by the state in which the vehicle was
purchased in and they are registering the vehicle in Massachusetts, they
must provide acceptable proof of tax paid on the motor vehicle or
trailer that was purchased and a completed MVU-29 Sales Tax Exemption
form along with the other required registration and title documentation
to the RMV. Acceptable proof of tax paid:

A.) Dealer invoice listing tax paid to the other state; or
B.) Registration (showing sales tax) issued by the other state; or
C.) Tax receipt form issued by the other state

If that state did not collect the required sales tax, then a tax credit
will not be permitted in Massachusetts. Tax is due to Massachusetts, in
accordance with the rules regarding motor vehicles or trailers purchased
out of state.

In order for you to apply for a new Massachusetts registration and title
conversion transaction, the following must be submitted to any full
service RMV office:

1.) A completed RMV-1 Application with the owner's signature and
insurance agent's signature and stamp
2.) Your original out of state certificate of title (if applied for) or
the titled owner/seller's original certificate of origin or original
certificate of title with the assignment section completed by the seller
and the purchaser
3.) A completed MVU-29 sales tax exemption and/or acceptable proof of
tax paid. Acceptable proof of tax paid:

A.) Dealer invoice listing tax paid to the other state; or
B.) Registration (showing sales tax) issued by the other state; or
C.) Tax receipt form issued by the other state
4.) $50.00 Title fee, 5% sales tax and interest (if applicable) and the
appropriate registration fee

Acceptable Payment Method: Cash, Check or Money Order

NOTE: If the current out of state certificate of title is being held by
an out of state lienholder, you must submit a valid/current out of state
registration card and list your lienholder's information and out of
state title number on your RMV-1 Application. However, the original out
of state certificate of title would be required to be submitted to the
RMV if you own your vehicle out right (i.e. no lien), if your vehicle is
not currently registered out of state or if the original out of state
certificate of title was issued from the prior titling state to the
titled owner with the lienholder present on the certification of title.

Massachusetts registration fees are determined by the motor
vehicle/trailer's intended use and the type of registration the owner
wishes to have within the offered category. Please review the
registration fee chart located on the RMV Website under the
'Registration Fee Schedule' category or you may contact an authorized
insurance agent and/or the RMV Telephone Center.

After completing the transaction, you will receive a new registration
certificate, new plates and plate decal sticker over the counter at the
RMV. The new Massachusetts title will be processed and mailed in
approximately six (6) to eight (Cool weeks. If there is a loan on the
motor vehicle, the new Massachusetts title will be mailed directly to
the lienholder listed on the RMV-1 Application. You must obtain a
Massachusetts vehicle inspection sticker within seven (7) days of the
registration date.

In order to obtain the RMV-1 Application and/or MVU-29 form, please
contact an authorized insurance agent, local RMV office or the Telephone
Center at (617)351-4500 (within 339/617/781/857 area code) or
1(800)858-3926 (from all other MA area codes) Monday through Friday from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except holidays.

Thank you for using www.mass.gov/rmv and have a nice day.

To people I have talked about my problem with paying tax in CA:
It was solved no problem with letter from the dealer that I have paid sales tax - it was just different clerk with more information who told me I don't need the pay the sales tax and finally after that I have received letter posted above.

I am not really seeing the problem.
I thought you had all of that information?
Title - Check
Receipt showing sales tax paid - check

So all that is left is for YOU to fill out the RMV-1 Application. So you need to go get the form, fill it out, and then take ALL of the above info to the RMV and get it squared away.
Call your insurance agent because they need to sign off on the RMV-1 Application I believe.

Thats it....very easy to do Smile

It is all done by now... the only problem was uniformed clerk at RMV who said that I have to pay the tax anyway, no exceptions... and that was the one I approached at first, so I thought I had to pay it. But it worked out fine, cause other clerk told me I don't need to pay the tax and then I received the email above.

Yes, the insurance was not canceled, I checked with the insurance company, so I am all set, just waiting for the vanity plate, but other than that I have everything done.
