And the funny thing was that a few people were interested in the trailer. One guy even waited 30 minutes for Kevin to finish with the DMV so he could get a peek at the inside! This trailer sure draws attention!
What sales percentage do you pay there? That was a fantastic rate for you.

It looks like the actual tax rate was about 7.4% but with all the fees on top of that the ending amount paid was about 8.4%.

Thanks. Was wondering what others pay. Don't know that we had other fees. We paid 5%. Our reg is very low, probably about $37 per year, which is based upon square footage. Apparently every state is different.

What are you Canadians and others paying in sales tax? I am guessing it is by province.

In Alberta we have no Provincial sales tax, but we do have to pay a 5% Federal Goods and Services Tax at time of purchase. When we register the trailer, it is a "perpetual" registration, with a nominal one-time fee (cannot remember how much) probably about $110.

That is interesting that you pay a federal tax on a vehicle purchase as our sales taxes are by state with no federal.

Cathy we have two taxes, the federal GST and the provincial (PST) except for Alberta which has no provincial tax. We pay these on almost everything we buy except most groceries. I had to pay a combined total of 13% in order to register ours two years ago. Some provinces like Ontario now have a combined tax called harmonized (HST), just adds the two taxes together. ON HST is 13%, some Maritime provinces are even higher. Another reason Canadians like to or at least liked to shop in the US to save on taxes, but now with our poor dollar some US merchants near the border are suffering from our lack of trips just to shop.

Whoa, that's a bundle, Adrian. I guess most Canadians are paying close to that. And I guess you cannot save by buying any vehicle in the U.S. because Canada will probably get you on that, too.

Looking for TN info on getting the tag and title. We just got all the paperwork from Escape and are not sure what TN will want to create a title. Do you go to the DMV or county clerk office? We hope to leave to pick up the trailer in a couple of weeks. Will they give us a temporary tag? Also did you insure your trailer before you picked it up? Thanks.

People can tell you what they did but you will often get what you get depending upon which office you visit, or which person you talk with. You can call the DMV, just for fun, to see what they say they will do. And then see what they do.

Hello John,
I went to the county court clerk's office here in Cheatham Co. to get tags, title, etc. Had no problem whatsoever. It took maybe 10 min. Take all the paperwork ETI sends you and you should be good to go.
