Can anyone from the Seattle area please share their OSD experience upon the Titling and Registration of their vehicle?
Am I correct to say that the Sales Tax was NOT paid when ordering the OSD as the delivery of the vehicle is Overseas, thus ONLY UPON the Title and Registration back in the US, that I would need to pay the Sales Tax directly to the DMV (I assume there is a small fee for CC payments at the DMV)?
- Was the Sales Tax of 10.3% calculated from the purchase price of the vehicle upon the Title and Registration at the DMV?
- Or was it based on the Use Tax from the Price Digest since the car is technically imported back into the US and is Used?
I understand the RTA is calculated on the MSRP of the base price of the vehicle determined by the DMV and not the purchase price.
Also do the dealers here still charge the doc fee if I were do the Title and Registration myself?
