Hi guys,

I'm an NC resident and my mother, who is a FL resident, is gifting her old car to me. Do we need to file the title transfer in FL or NC or does it not matter? Also, would this exempt from the Highway Use Tax (even if the car is getting transferred from FL to NC)? I called the DMV and they gave me two different answers.

Thanks!!

The title will be filed with the state. This is so you can get tags. You need to get the title signed over in your name, have it inspected in the county you live in, then get insurance, file the title at DMV, get you tags. You will have to pay the taxes/fees as list for the vehicle. Then, you will have your county/city taxes to pay. The state will send you a new title that is in your name. It is all fairly easy.
