Both of my 2012 and 2014 vehicle acquisitions were lease deals. Better pricing/terms, inventory selection, and customer service. Several of my neighbors also will only purchase/lease in So. California.

This is purely a price pack by the dealer. The dealer is required by law to file the documentation on the car, so you are handing them cash to do something that they are legally required to do. I usually tell the dealer that I refuse to pay it or the deal is off.

I live in Henderson and bought a new car in California earlier this year. The CA dealer will write you a one way pass for $23 that permits you to drive the car to Nevada and if you were stopped you would show the pass to law enforcement. The one way pass is meant to permit you to drive from the selling dealer directly to the Nevada DMV and register the car. The DMV was closed by the time I got back, so I went and registered it the next day. At the DMV they checked the paperwork and I paid Nevada sales tax and registration only (no payment in CA except for the $23). I had some registration time credit left on my previous NV car that I sold so that amount was deducted from the total NV registration. The NV DMV gave me my NV plates and I was all done. Pretty easy actually.

I am planning to do something similar - buy a new car in SoCal and drive it and register it in Vegas
where I live.


The CA dealer wants to charge CA sales tax and in the other thread, it was mentioned that NV DMV
will take that into account and only charge the difference, if any. Is this still valid ?



I would much rather do it the way you did - pay the total sales tax to NV DMV at the time of registering.


Did you have to press the CA dealer to avoid charging CA sales tax ?

Looking back on my two California car deals in 2012 & 2014, they were both leases so the sales tax is charged monthly as part of the ongoing monthly lease charges and not paid in full upfront as part of the car purchase which I believe is the situation for you. I would call the NV DMV and ask them about the sales tax payment from out of state vehicle purchases. They may even have it documented on their web site. Good luck and please post your outcome.

When I bought my car in Oregon with plans to register in NV, the Oregon dealership asked me where the car would be registered. They then charged me the tax rate for Washoe County. Then the paperwork for the car was sent to Nevada at the DMV of my choice.

Oregon does not sales tax so they are not sticklers on sales tax.


I believe CA does not have an agreement with other states, so they want to get their sales tax.
Looks like there is now way to avoid that.


At least NV recognizes the CA sales tax and will only collect the difference if the CA sales tax was lower than NV sales tax.
