    I have also paid sales tax on everything I purchased thru GL or GP on every auction or buy it now stuff (1) in many states. When you bring it home & have to register it, they want their taxes too!

    I would like it if it was camo or green with Gov Planet logo, I could rock it while driving my truck and when people ask me where I got it, I can just point to the hat

    But I dont like the ones MVMULES got looks like a billboard on your head, I like the ones more fits like a cap but can be adjustable.

    OK, what I am talking about is taxes on vehicles. Example: I live in Utah and am a resident, I go to Wyoming and buy a car/truck/semi. I do not pay sales tax on that vehicle in Wyoming because I am NOT a resident. Now when I get back to Utah and go to register the vehicle I now have to pay the sales tax on the purchase price of the vehicle. That is how it has worked for me before. The problem in paying sales taxes when you are not a resident is then you go the register it in your state of residence and may now have to pay sales tax again. This can amount to thousands of dollars that the buyer just got screwed out of. Non vehicle purchases don't matter much as they do not need to be registered and taxed. I am talking about vehicles that require licensing. When I was in the military, when I bought a vehicle in a state I was not a resident of I also did not pay sales taxes. So why is it that a non-resident who wins a bid on a truck in Oklahoma now has to pay the sales tax there THEN pay again when they get into their state of residence and have to pay again at registration?

    OK how about the same scenario (purchased and picked up out of state) But instead of registering you decide to part it out. If you didn't pay sales tax in WY then you have tax evasion. (unless you collect sales tax from customers if you are a business) We have many members here that buy trucks for parting out. I am sure this site is not condoning tax evasion.

    From past experience I know some states have reciprocating agreements about crediting customers sales tax that was paid in another state.

    I had this issue come up when i purchased trucks in MS and titled them in LA. I got credit for sales tax paid to MS. I had to prove it for the credit. I found the proper proof in the GL Paid in Full invoice. I even got refunds from LA DMV for 3 vehicles I titled and paid full sales tax in LA once I submitted the Invoice from GL to prove I paid the tax in MS. I was so surprised I actually go a refund after the fact.

    The post above is absolutely dead on, If you don't register the vehicle and we didn't charge tax we would be on the hook. If you provide us with proof that you paid we will refund.

    I wouldn't expect GP to know all the state laws but in NY I'm supposed to claim any out of state purchases on my state income taxes so that they can charge me the appropriate tax. If I fail to do that it's on me, not GP. This goes for any purchase.

    How many private buyers are actually parting trucks vs. the big buyers that do it as a business?
