I don't know what the sales tax on a $65k vehicle would be, but you can bet MT will get theirs from the tabs. As a previous poster indicated, the tabs will be at least $600/year for five years or $3000. The years after five, the tabs will slowly decline, but they'll still be expensive. So instead of paying up front, MT milks it from you every year. If I recall just paying for a drivers license is over $50! And the property taxes are astronomical, fuel tax isn't quite as high as other neighboring states. Overall, I live in WA because even with sales tax here, it's much much less expensive to live here than it would be in western MT and you're not relying upon tourism to put bread on the table. MT is pretty to look at, but you can't eat the scenery.

Be very careful about the no-tax thing. It is nice, but keep in mind the cost of living in many areas is high and the wages are LOW.
