    I hate new york dmv (and new york in general). I just finished my enlistment in the Air Force and transferred into the NY Air Guard. About a year ago I bought a new truck down in New Mexico. I paid the 4% sales down there and registered it in New Mexico. Now I move back to New York where I have 30 days to get a new registration. Well being the law abiding citizen I am I went over to the department of motor vehicles to register my truck only to find out that they charge sales tax on your vehicle again. Another 8%. So instead of paying the $130 registration fee, $15 plate fee $50 title transfer fee and $20 vehicle inspection I now have to pay all those plus $1700 for taxes. And to top it all off I have to do the same thing with my wife’s car. So a total of $3000 just to get ******* new york plates on both of our vehicles. What a great welcome home present

    Are you sure its not the difference between NY state tax and what you paid in taxes? I know when I changed from Alaska to Maryland for registration I had to pay 5% (MD's tax) but had I paid 3% to a state already I would have only had to pay 2% to maryland. I argued with the person at the counter over my vehicle's value, they said 18k, I said, great give me 18k I'll give you the keys right now, they said, that's not how this works. I ended up paying about $1k in taxes.

    I think I'm right.

    It's still BS!! He has already paid taxes on the purchase of the vehicle while in another state on active duty in the military. His relocation has nothing to do with him buying a vehicle out of state to avoid paying NY sales tax!! I would call the media, preferably FOX and have them air this with a grateful nation. greenr19....Thanks for your service!!

    That is what I thought. Come to find out New York only recognizes taxes paid from 8 other states. Right on the bottom of that form it has the list of whose they except Arizona California Florida Hawaii Massachusetts Michigan South Carolina Wyoming, and of course the huge list that they don't except. The list that they don't except has a star which states "You may be eligible for a refund of the taxes paid to the other state" I checked with New Mexico DMV and they do not refund taxes paid.

    I know I don't know whose worse our President or New York’s governor. I've thought about moving but I can't do anything until my enlistment is up in the Guard.

    greenr19 - Talk with someone associated with your command and see if the military can't intervene on your behalf to get the cars registered without your having to pay the sales taxes.

    That blows but not as bad as VA. Here you have to pay sales tax when you buy the car then you have to pay the state tax to own the care every year after that. Tell me that ain't double taxation.

    I've been driving around California with Tennessee tags for the last 6 months because of the same reason. They can eat me.

    It's such a confusing system. I was lucky enough to avoid the annual luxury tax by being an out of state resident (military) but I still had to pay for the damned city sticker. I don't know if many places near the beltway have that but in Hampton and Norfolk area, you pay tax when you buy the car, annual luxury tax and an annual or bi-annual city tax. Next they are probably going to tax your taxes.

    Vote with your feet. Ok Cane you gonna pay for me to move? You going to get me a job like the one I have now. I work of 6 months get paid for 12, you going to pay my fees to get into another college?

    Man it ain't like I want to pay taxes all the dam time. But what do you do they have been saying for 10 or 15 years not that the personal property tax (Yearly tax on cars) is going away in three.

    Well I think seeing as Cpttango30 is a member of this board in a way he is voting with his feet. To keep a job in that area you have 3, maybe 4 states to choose from your willing to commute a good distance.

    Virginia, Maryland, DC, West Virginia is the maybe.

    MD and DC, I hope you have a nice gun collection when you get here cause its not going to increase much once you are a resident, and WV is a hell of a commute. Although owning land in WV and registering a car there might work. Prolly not worth it though.

    I work exactly 3miles from home. My son goes to work with me everyday. My daughter leaves before I have to leave for work. My wife is home when my daughter gets home from school and my son rides home with me. I pay $22 a month for Anthem BCBS PPO health insurance, I get every holiday off with my kids 2 months in the summer and I get paid no matter what. Granted pay is not all that great but, if I went into the private sector I would have to drive north to DC or Fairfax Springfield everyday taking another 20 hours a week So I would see my kids 20 hours less a week (Not always a bad thing) I would miss out of my kids school functions Plus I GOT ME TONS OF EYE CANDY Right now. I am one of 4 yes 4 guys that work with me the rest are women and some mighty hot ones I might add. One I work close with talks about becoming a cougar, I don't know if any of you have ever been cougar hunting but boy if you land a good one they are great.

    MAYBE I should have said, "DO WHAT I DID, VOTE WITH YOUR FEET!"

    Why the f*** would I pay you money to move?

    Christ, you might move closer to me!! [​IMG]
