Do I have to pay state tax if I don't want to drive the car?

I'm living in MA for the next year and then will be moving back to Ireland. I was going to buy a ZL1 Camaro and possibility a cheap V6 as well with the view to shipping them both back.

I lived in MA from 2011-2012 shipped my 2SS back to Ireland, it was really easy to do and if I can remember all I had to do was give the shipping company my registration and note it as exported.

With the cheap V6 I was just going to garage it and never actually drive it here, if I buy it in say New Hampshire will I still have to pay state tax in MA?

Depends on the state. I live in La. and if I bought one in Tx. The DMV calculates the sales tax based on the sale price of the vehicle when its registered.

If that's how MA does it you may not have too as long as you don't register it.

I know in Tennessee as long as you don't register it you dont have to pay taxes on it. Taxes are paid at time it is registered and you get your tags.

In Texas, I believe you have to pay sales tax to get a title in your name.
Yeah, um, er, ah, it's a stock motor, ugh, with only an exhaust. Yep, that's it.

Thanks Bill, for showing all the non-believers a 331" small block Chevy powered car could outrun a 426 Hemi powered car. Thanks for the tube chassis, the splay valve small block cylinder heads, the strut front suspension, and the dry sump oiling system. I applaud your becoming the once king of the NA motors builders. Most of all, thanks for the racing memories and inspiring many young guys to follow in your footsteps.
