Texas - Doe Out of State Car Buyers have to pay sales tax here?
Whoops - Added an e to "Do"
We're selling our C6 and the only interest we've had thus far has been from out of state. I had one buyer ask me if he would have to pay sales tax in Texas if he's buying here. I would think he'd have to pay sales tax in his state (or in Canada) to get it registered there, but not in Texas. Anyone know? Thanks.
On their website they have "Title FAQs" and it states:
What steps should I take when I sell my vehicle?
Keep your license plates and transfer them to your new vehicle.
When you keep your license plates, the buyer has to transfer the vehicle title and this helps to protect you.
When you take off the plates, the buyer will need a Vehicle Transit Permit to drive the vehicle to the county tax office to re-title the car or truck.
Provide the buyer with all the documents needed to transfer the title:
•A signed title
•A signed vehicle title application
•The vehicle's latest registration receipt
•Any other supporting documents, such as a release of lien, power of attorney, etc.
Then, accompany the buyer to the county tax office to verify the buyer files a new vehicle title application under his/her name. If you sell or trade in your vehicle to a dealer, or if the buyer can't go to the tax office, you need to notify us of the sale by filing a vehicle vehicle transfer notification within 30 days of selling the vehicle.
