Does anyone know if LA has any kind of reciprocity deal with VA? I'm most likely going to have to register my car in the next few months (I know, 30 days...) and I'm just trying to estimate how much it's going to cost me. I have a 2001 Honda Civic which is probably worth about $7,000 from a dealership, and I just can't even fathom paying $700 (if it ends up being around 9% + fees) to register my car. Are people driving $25,000 cars really paying over two thousand bucks for registration?!

It's only if you're registering your car for the first time in LA and is based on fair market value. I paid over $800 for my 2006 Ford Focus when I moved it here from Indiana 5 years ago, but every registration after that has only been around $26. It's a one time hit that sucks. I don't know what states have reciprocity, but I believe you still have to pay up front and credit will be applied against your taxes.

Yes, if you bring in an expensive car from out of state, you'll get hit with paying really high initial taxes.

You get a 3% credit.

If I go out and buy a $25,000 car, the normal sales tax should come to $2,250. The dealership would foward that $2,250 to the DMV and in exchange I'd get a license plate. The actual registration is only $10 a year.

So basically I'll pay 6% on the worth of the car, correct? Is that on the price I paid for it, or what blue book says it's worth? I got a great deal from a private seller for $4600 back in Virginia about a year ago, but earlier today I looked at the blue book value if bought from a dealership and it's right at $7,000. Thanks for the info, I've been stressing about this for a while now.

Should be based on purchase price, can possibly also claim some depreciation. Wouldn't make sense to charge somebody 2,000 on an Accord they bought new 15 years ago, but this IS the government we're talking about.

If I were you I'd take the bill of sale with me with the price you paid for it and try my luck. You might have a better chance if you go to an independent, licensed by the state, license plate agent (Wal-Mart, ABC Title, Insurance agent, etc.) instead of going directly to the DMV.
