I think the intent of the thread was to call attention to those states that do not charge their residents sales tax on Prius purchases, rather than to try to get out of paying tax. There are some states that ran a special promotion on certain vehicles, but not all dealers or tax clerks were aware of them.abbatangelo said:If someone is thinking of getting out of paying sales tax by buying in a tax-free state -- you might have to think again....
my reading is that the sales tax exemption in NY was only extended through Feb. 28, 2005.greengreg said:I did pay sales tax when I picked my new baby up last Monday; I'm led to believe, however, that there is some type of "tax reduction" program in place where the dealer should credit the tax back at time of sale.
