Bee and Linda:
not all states have the same dmv laws, when a relative gives you a vehicle in some states you are not charged the sales tax
in your case if this was not a relative more than likely you will pay the sales tax
Pascal the Gambler:
You may to the state, it depends on which state. Some will charge tax on the book value of the vehicle when you do the title change.
