I know sales tax on a car purchase is different in Kansas and Missouri. In one state, the sales tax is incorporated into the purchase price of the car. In the other state, you pay sales tax separately at time of registration. Which is which

In KS you can include the sales tax, if you like, into your loan from the bank. In MO you cannot include the sales tax into your loan, it must be paid seperately within 30 days of purchase.

Correct.

Link to Missouri Dept. of Revenue: Buying a Vehicle

Quote:
You have 30 days from the date of purchase to title and pay sales tax on your newly purchased vehicle. If you do not title the vehicle within 30 days, there is a title penalty of $25 on the 31st day after purchase. The penalty increases another $25 for every 30 days you are late with a maximum penalty of $200.

If you live in Missouri and buy a car in Kansas, do not pay them sales tax. They may try to collect but you do not have too if you are not a Kansas resident. I live in Missouri and always have but bought several cars in Kansas. Most dealerships know this but I had one insist that I had to pay sales tax when I bought the car and it ended up delaying my purchase a day while I had to prove to them that I didnt have too.

When you buy something, you have to pay sales tax to the state you live in. period.

This is even true with internet sales, but most people don't send their states a check every time they buy something online an itís difficult to enforce.

You will not be able to license a newly purchased car in the state you live in without paying sales tax.

Default MO resident, bought car in KS

Didn't this just change in MO meaning they can't charge you MO STATE TAX if you purchased a car in KS but they can require that you pay YOUR LOCAL tax? Right? If so, can you help me show proof? I've searched MO DMV and Dept of Revenue but can't find anything concrete. I'd like to take proof to the DMV with me. Thanks!

Looking at the MDOR website, Buying a Vehicle it says you'll pay state sales tax AND your local sales tax. (Look about the middle of the page under "you will pay:") You'll also have to show proof that you paid your personal property taxes for the prior year.

I'm sure if Missouri stopped collecting state sales tax on vehicles there would be plenty of publicity about it. And I'm sure they're not going to give up a big chunk of sales tax revenue.
