( not trying to be a smart a$$, just doesn't seem right to have to pay sales tax on a car twice )
It's a TVAT tax. Georgia has this as well. They are taxing you to bring a car into the state and it's based on the value of your car. Even if you paid sales tax in another state you still have to pay the TVAT tax.
In short you are paying sales tax twice.
Thank the new car dealers lobbyists.

Well, it's not as good as the rest of the nation, but at least it seems to be improving?

So they gave me all the paperwork saying visit again when I am ready to pay the tax. I am really overwhelmed because I cannot afford that!! Does anyone have the same experience? How did/would you handle this?
What did they value the car at? Use tax is determined by the car value not the original sale price. Louisiana has a 4% sales tax and what ever parish tax you moved to. $3000 seems high for a use tax.
