    Well I live in NC right now(stationed in the military) I bought my car from a friend up in NY and I had to pay the sales tax. And it sucks down here. 3% of book value. Back in NY they do it by bill of sale. I never bought a car for more than $1 up there.

    You take it home and register it just as if you bought it in your home state. Nothing different at all.

    yup. I payed cash for my civic and had to pay taxes later without receipt. In vegas they have an estimator to solve disputes such as the person paying 500 bucks for a car, but the dmv wants to charge you taxes for say ...$1000. THen they look at blue book value and the actual condition of the car to determine the taxes owed.
