If the car is never registered, not likely, but 'IF' then no taxes would ever be paid.

One time I drove a Mass dealer car to NH, where the sale took place so a NH resident could buy the car in NH and not in Mass. therby avoid Mass sales taxes. he still paid the NH tax which is a fee involved with his town and the state, just not called tax.

Now i see town, county and state fees no matter what they are called a tax. My ccw is a tax, my drivers lic is a tax, but these are called fee's.

To get rid of a dead car tire there is a fee, which is a tax. And so on, but I see no disagreement.

Maybe I am missing a main point. I have no idea hpw Ohio does what.

I bought a used van from a used car lot in Arkanasas for need of a rolling bed room. They have strange taxes. You pay after 1 years time. But the really strange thing is right after you pay, you simple get a note from the dealer and drive away with no plates and drive that way 30 days with no plates before you can get any!

The whole time i felt guilty and criminal like!
There is a whole cottage industry in avoiding sales tax on RV's. There are companies that register them in some western state and serve as agents in that state so that people who pay 200-330k for one of these rigs never pay any sales tax. Then there is the matter of John Kerry, trophy husband to the alcohol addled wife of the heir to the Heinz Ketchup fortune who tried to save $500,000 in sales tax on his most recent yacht purchase.

Your question and statement ...

If you live in Washington, where you will register the car, you'll pay your local sales tax at the time of registration. If you try to establish an Oregon residence to register the car there, Oregon will want you to pay income tax....

My Reply,

1. When you get home with the car you will go to the nearest Licence Agency and show them your Purchase Invoice/Bill of Sale from Oregon dealership which could include a trade in.
They will charge proper sales taxes at time the of registry.
2. I do not how Oregon gets their revenue for the sale as they have no Sales Tax, but how would it be from the Oregon State Income Tax ??

Purchasing a Car is a "Sale not Income".
