Sounds cool! But, based on previous, non-Arizona experience, be ready for the person you talked to to be wrong (just in case).

Well, AZ DMV taxes (or lack thereof) must apply to watercraft, too...now I know why half the boats in San Diego Bay are registered in Arizona

Just trying to be the voice of reason/desntion... I hate calling some place, being told I would need $xx.xx includiing tax, etc., just to find out they were off, and I need $xx.xx plus $x.xx, because of misunderstood terminology or just stupididity...

Yup, I have gotten bad info form the DMV here before.
Also, have gotten different answers form the same place depending on who I talked to.
That is so cool you don't have to pay tax. PA won't give up a penny if they can help it.

even thought its been pretty much resolved, figure ill throw OK in too.

here in OK, you pay sales tax on the documented sale price. when i sold my 96 Bonne to my brother for $100, sales tax paid for the full $100

That was my understanding as well, and I searched the AZ DMV site, earlier, but couldn't find any confirmation, but I didn't have much time. Private party sale is no sales tax at the time of purchase. Any retail, wholesale, outlet, anybody in business to sell vehicles, then yes, sales tax is charged.

What you WILL have to pay are registration fees, based on the value of the vehicle, annually, and each year the value is depreciated. Good news is, based on what I have heard, is that the fees are nowhere near as steep as those paid by people in Connektikut.

And further, from the Arizona Republic newspaper

No tax on some auto sales

Q. Does Arizona charge any sales tax when two family members exchange a vehicle as a gift? What if the vehicle'* title and registration is transferred from another state? - Diane Geimer, Phoenix

A. Arizona does not charge sales tax on private-party auto sales; it is charged only on sales from dealerships. This applies to sales, transfers and gifts. It does not matter if the transaction is between two family members or two strangers. It also is irrelevant if you had the vehicle titled in another state first or just had it signed over to you in the other state. When you title the vehicle in Arizona, since it was a private party transaction, no sales tax will apply. The Vehicle License Tax which is the yearly tax calculated on the value of the auto, still applies to all vehicles registered in Arizona.
