Tax Deductions Extended to States Without Sales Tax
That's great for car buyers living in states with high tax rates, but what about buyers in states like Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Montana or Oregon which don't have state tax?
Now there's good news. Buyers from states with no sales tax will still benefit. Taxpayers in these states can now deduct other fees and taxes imposed by the state or city based on the car's sales price.
To qualify, the car has to be purchased between February 16, 2009 and January 1, 2010, and is good for fees or taxes paid on up to $49,500 of the purchase price of the car.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
