Hello all, new here to this forum and hoping to get some answers from folks who know about car buying and titling.
Earlier this month I purchased a used 2013 Scion FRS from a dealership in Oklahoma. I currently reside in Texas and I'm having a difficult time registering and titling this car. After multiple visits to the tax office I discovered sales tax is not normally included at the time of purchase vehicles in Oklahoma as they are in Texas. I was told before I could title and register the vehicle I would have to pay Texas sales tax. This amounts to around $1,300 about double the sales tax listed for Oklahoma vehicle purchases. Am I required to pay Texas state sales tax or is it possible to title the vehicle in Oklahoma and pay the 3.25% Oklahoma rate, then just transfer the title here in Texas? With that method will I be required to show Oklahoma state residency?
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
