Depends on where you live but short answer is yes most states have a Sales and use tax. The rate varies from state to state and its based on the purchase price. VA is like 4.5 so 70k S&T would be like 3150. 6k sounds a little high.I just purchased a 2010 Nissan GTR, and I have to go register it but the guy who sold me it said I'd have to pay 6k for registration (tax) on the car. Is this true?
