is that right?

Is that true that if i trade in my car to get another one i will not have to pay taxes on the new one? One of the sales guys that work in a dealership told me that, but i'm not sure if its true for only new cars or used as well? or is it true at all smile.

Yeps. You gotta pay taxes on the car that you are getting. I purchased a used car from a private party and I had to pay taxes based on the price of the car when I went down to DMV.

Um I think you will have to pay taxes when you reg the car with the dmv on the price of the vehicle even though you didnt "buy" it with cash, you used your car as the money.

in mass you gotta pay the tax upon registration but the registration is good for the lifetime for the vehicle unlike some other states where you register it every year.

when i bought used cars i always had them "gifted" to be and filled out the appropriate paperwork to get 'round the tax. some states go by kbb value and depreciate yearly registration fees as your car gets older.

just make the dealership give you the extra amount for the tax...if he told you that, thats what he should do for ya...im a firm believer in not letting the dealership fuck you over on anything...if they tell you that shit, make them pay for it if its not true or dont buy from them...they'll do it just to get the sale...

DMV in CT charges taxes based on BLUE BOOK value of vehicle; thus, if the seller tries to do you a favor and lowers the purchase price on the bill of sale, it doesn't matter any more. thumbsdown
