Just wondering if you buy a car from a private seller, is there a sales tax, and if so how much? Thanks

It's common knowledge that people trading vehicles privately LIE about the amount paid for the vehicle in order to minimize the taxes when the vehicle is re-registered to the new owner. Not sure what the consequences are if there is proof of fraud in this instance, or how often it's exercised.

Motor Vehicle Excise Tax

I double pasted!!

"The N.A.D.A. value is used if the declared purchase price of the vehicle is lower than 80% of the N.A.D.A. average trade-in or wholesale value. "

Not any longer. I sold a truck to my brother for 1/2 of what it was worth. The MVD taxed him at the NADA value, not what I sold it to him for.

In Arizona the fee to register your vehicle is generally less than $10, but there is an additional vehicle license tax (VLT) assessed at the time of registration. This is the equivalent of the personal property tax charged by other states. The more valuable your vehicle, the higher the VLT will be.

I had heard that before, and I should have mentioned it as a possibility, but I didn't know if is true or not.

I wonder how long ago that rule began being enforced?

We paid over $500 for our VLT to renew our plates on our Mustang (2008 convertible) this year in Tempe.
