Buying a RV privately, how much tax?

  • Add to quote

How much tax is due when registering a privately bought RV?  

steve604

12% just like any other vehicle... the higher the price you declare on the transfer form, the more tax you'll pay. campers don't have a registration so no tax.  

12% of what you put on bill of sale.  

Trying to decide whether to buy privately or from a dealer (used either way). I guess there's some sort of "gvmt gas certification" if I buy from a dealer, any other fees they might be throwing in?  

Dan

Technically a gas certification is required every time an RV is sold. It's only enforced on dealers though. It's only $72 if there's nothing wrong. It's a good idea anyway, you know it's safe that way, and it takes the liability off the seller and puts it on me. Usually the dealer covers the gas certification and PDI in the price of the unit anyway. All the other fees will be typical of any car dealer.

Buyer questions B.C.’s new rules on Provincial Sales Tax for used vehicles

  • B.C. driver discovers surprising detail when paying PST on used vehicle in private sale

B.C. to change sales tax on used cars, 'adding insult to injury,' says critic

Shopping for a used car in B.C. could become more expensive come Oct. 1. That's when the province plans to change how much provincial sales tax (PST) will be applied to used vehicles.

“You will have to pay a value that the government will deem that the car is worth,” said Peter Milobar, the Kamloops-North Thompson MLA and Liberal finance critic.

“If you want to challenge that, you’ll have to pay a mechanic to do some sort of appraisal or mechanical justification as to why the vehicle is worth less," he said.

Currently, the province calculates how much PST you pay on a vehicle by what the seller and purchaser declares as the sale price. The province says these changes are to prevent fraud.

Milobar says these changes are unfair to British Columbians.

“The premise of this is that it doesn’t seem to matter how good of a deal you might be able to get, it means the government wants whatever they feel the value is,” he said.

The provincial government says it will close a loophole that brings a $30-million shortfall each year.

As an example, if a vehicle listed for $17,000 sells for $15,000, the provincial sales tax on that purchase would be $1,050. But if the province deems the actual value of the vehicle to be $17,000, the PST bill would be $1,190.

“Folks who are shopping used don’t have extra money,” said Kris Sims, B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. “They are trying to save money.”

Sims said this change in policy will hurt low-income earners.

“This province is unaffordable for average working people and this is just adding insult to injury."

More details about the change are expected to be available in the fall.

Sales Tax on RV Purchase from B.C. Canada

By nckzck July 10, 2015 in General RV Information

  • Start new topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am looking at purchasing a motor home that is currently in Victoria, B.C., Canada. I live in California, but can register it either in Nevada or Texas. My question is...I want to minimize the state sales tax on the purchase. If I bring it directly to California, it appears the sales tax and registration would be approximately $11,400. Looking for suggestions on minimizing the tax / fees. I have heard that if I have transported to Nevada and take delivery of it there, I can avoid state sales tax altogether?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

I live in California, but can register it either in Nevada or Texas. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~   My question is...I want to minimize the state sales tax on the purchase. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

First a question for you. If you live in CA, how is it that you could register the RV in either NV or TX? The second part is, does it matter to you if the way that you do this is legal, or just something that you can get away with? I would suspect that there is an import fee involved and suggest that you check with the border folks to see about that. If you do register & license this motorhome in TX or NV you need to realize that CA has been very aggressive in pursuit and prosecution of people who register boats, RVs, and automobiles in another state in order to avoid the CA taxes. The only way that I know of to register your RV in some other state and avoid this effort is to store the RV in whatever state you register it in and not in CA at your home. CA even has a toll free number that they advertise for people to use to report tax cheaters and I think that they even sometimes pay a reward to the snitch.

Nevada has a state sales tax of 6.86% and some counties and cities also add an additional tax . As I read the laws there, there isn't a legal way around that tax and there are additional fees that are associated with the registering and titling of an RV.

Texas also has a 6.25% sales tax on RVs registered in the state but other fees are based upon weight and are quite reasonable.

Thanks for the welcome. It is appreciated. Yes....I want to do things legally, but as you know, there are often methods that allow someone that does the research to not expose themselves to certain state regulations if there is a Federal mandate or an agreement between states allowing such. I found this on another RV website, and have seen the same information on other sites while doing a Google search:

" Sales tax

Sales tax is payable on the purchase of an RV in many, but not all, states. Retail prices, MRSP, sticker prices, etc typically do not include sales tax, so you should figure that as an additional cost when you budget for your purchase. In states that charge sales tax, it will be significantly lower than Brits or Europeans are used to paying as VAT. The tax varies by state and often by county, but the approximate tax rate for Florida is 6% and California is 8.25%.

Sales tax can be (legally) avoided if you either purchase an RV in a non-tax state or arrange for delivery in a non-tax state. If, for example, you purchase an RV in California, you could take delivery in Nevada and pay no sales tax. If you request this option, the dealer will arrange for a delivery driver to drive your coach across state lines, hand over the coach, and have you sign the paperwork required by California. There will usually be a fee for this service, which essentially pays for the driver's time."

I just want to confirm the legitimacy of the information, and confirm it applies to bringing an RV in from Canada, as it would from another state.

Does the RV comply with US smog requirements?

I know several motorcyclists who bought BMW motorcycles in Canada and couldn't register them in the US because they weren't stamped as EPA compliant.

Don't know if RV's are like that but if it were me I'd find out.

If you are a CA resident then unless you set up a Montana LLC there is no legal way to register it out of state and keep it in CA. There are lots of people who do just that but it doesn't make it legal.

    Sales tax can be (legally) avoided if you either purchase an RV in a non-tax state or arrange for delivery in a non-tax state. If, for example, you purchase an RV in California, you could take delivery in Nevada and pay no sales tax.

This is information for people who don't live in California, NOT for California residents! (Note that it was written for people visiting the U.S.)

There used to be a way for California residents to avoid paying California sales tax by keeping the vehicle out of California for some specified period of time...it used to be 90 days and then was changed to 12 months. I *think* it went back to 90 days, but you will need to check with the State of California to see what the time limit currently is and what you need to do to comply with the law.

Vehicle registration

Import a vehicle into b.c..

If you're a B.C. resident, you can import a vehicle from another province or country and insure it for its trip to B.C., as well as after it’s been imported. Find out how.

Import a vehicle from another country

If you​ want to import a vehicle from another country, please review information from these federal government agencies:

Registrar of Imported Vehicles

Canada Border Services Agency

Transport Canada

If your vehicle is registered in another Canadian province, the import requirements of these agencies do not apply.

Provincial safety inspection for all imported vehicles

Vehicles from other provinces and countries must be inspected at a B.C. designated inspection facility  to ensure that it meets B.C.'s safety standards. Note the cost of inspections varies. Feel free to ask your inspection facility for a price quote.

Vehicle​s exempted from the B.C. pre-registration safety inspection

new vehicles

under the New West Partnership Trade Agreement, qualified private vehicles imported from Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba

vehicles with a net weight of 3501 kg or more​​

low speed electric vehicles

motorcycles

Please speak to an  Autoplan broker  for details on vehicles that may be exempted from provincial safety inspection.

Driving a vehicle from another province or the U.S.

To drive a vehicle home from another province or from the U.S., you'll need to:

Buy temporary insurance from ICBC called a "Binder for Owner's Interim Certificate of Insurance" from your Autoplan broker .

Buy an in-transit permit from the province or state in which you buy your vehicle. Please note, many provinces and U.S. states will not issue this permit without proof of insurance.

If you cancel the binder of insurance before its effective date, the full premium will be refunded. There are no refunds on binders of insurance once the policy is in effect.

Flood-damaged vehicles

Don't get stuck with a flood-damaged vehicle. Vehicles that have been damaged in floods can't be licensed or insured in B.C.

For details, contact the  Registrar of Imported Vehicles .

U.S. citizens studying in B.C.

If you're a U.S. citizen bringing your car to the province and are enrolled full-time at a  recognized B.C educational institution , you won't need to register your vehicle. Just apply for a non-resident exemption permit within 30 days of your arrival so that you can drive here. This permit allows you to continue using the registration, licence and insurance coverage from your home state, for as long as you're studying here.

To apply, call ICBC's Financial Responsibility Unit:

Lower Mainland: 604-443-4624

Toll-free: 1-800-665-4336

Driving the vehicle to an Autoplan broker

When you arrive in B.C., you'll need to drive your vehicle to:

a  B.C. designated inspection facility and​​​

an Autoplan broker's office to have it registered, licenced and insured for driving in B.C. The broker needs to see the vehicle to confirm the VIN and odometer reading and check for any visible damage.

Get insured before your temporary insurance expires

It can save you time and money to drive there before your temporary "binder" of insurance expires. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase additional insurance for those trips.

Required documents

For vehicles imported from other provinces in Canada

When you go to the broker's office, bring the following:​

vehicle registration from the previous jurisdiction or a New Vehicle Information Statement

the original bill of sale, and

a "passed" inspection report, signed by the inspector, from a designated inspection facility

For vehicles imported from the U.S.

When you go to the broker's office, bring the following:

​Vehicle Import Form 1 with two stamps from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA)

CBSA document B15, or B3 or B4

the vehicle's original Certificate of Title or Certificate of Origin

Provincial Sales Tax (PST) on vehicles

If you are buying or importing a vehicle or giving or receiving a gift vehicle there may be provincial sales tax applicable and exemptions may apply. Find out more about  PST on vehicles ​.

If you have more questions, talk to your  Autoplan broker  or read the  B.C. Government bulletin on vehicle tax .

Luxury Taxes on RVs

used travel trailer tax in bc

Preserving capital is a rallying cry when thinking about our retirement years. We’ve done well but the shift into retirement means a bit more focus on the expense side.

I’m not concerned about the expenses we can control. I am more concerned about the expenses that we do not control. And most of those expenses are influenced by government either in the form of taxes or monetary policy.

With monetary policy, the Bank of Canada loves to devalue the Canadian currency when the economy is bumpy although some pundits like to draw a close linkage between the value of CAD and the price of oil.

With the recent battle over trade with the U.S., CAD has fallen.

used travel trailer tax in bc

Since February, CAD has gone from a high of .82 against the USD to a low of .75.

With various fees, it means that $1,000 CAD gets us about 715 USD. We lose about 28 percent due to currency valuation compared to parity. Thankfully, costs and taxes are somewhat lower in the U.S. however, whenever CAD falls below about .88, we pay a premium.

We will be paying more in real terms for our trip south. Those currency expenses I cannot control.

I came across this article in Australia . The Queensland government is putting a two-percent tax on vehicles worth more than $100,000 and weighing less than 4.5 tonnes. This impacts people who might want to purchase mid-range motorhomes in retirement.

In British Columbia, Canada, we have such a luxury tax on vehicles. Being Canadians, though, we like bigger taxes then those issued by the Queensland government. We get them to kick in at a lower price — $55k is a luxury car in British Columbia — and make them really bite when the price of the vehicle gets up there. $125k will net an 8% luxury tax. $150k will net a 13% luxury tax. Ouch!

From the British Columbia government:

Luxury surtax applies to passenger vehicles when the value for tax exceeds: $55,000 to $55,999.99 — 7% PST plus 1% Luxury tax $56,000 to $56,999.99 — 7% PST plus 2% Luxury tax $57,000 to $124,999.99 — 7% PST plus 3% Luxury tax $125,000 to $149,999.99 — 7% PST plus 8% Luxury tax (effective April 1, 2018) $150,000 and over — 7% PST plus 13% Luxury Tax (effective April 1, 2018)

Reading the tax material further, I find that seniors wishing to purchase an RV in retirement in British Columbia will not be impacted by this luxury surtax:

For tax purposes, a passenger vehicle is defined as a motor vehicle designed primarily as a means of transport for individuals. For example, trucks and vans larger than three-quarter ton, camperized vans, motor homes, buses and motorcycles with engines of 250 cc or less are not passenger vehicles.

In Ontario, the province where I live, the NDP party, running on a platform that included high taxes, wanted to introduce a similar vehicle luxury tax to British Columbia. They did not indicate a percentage, only that, if elected, they would put a surcharge on all vehicles over $100,000. I suspect that all vehicles would also include RVs.

Fortunately, the NDP was not elected. Voters in Ontario were tired of 15 plus years of tax and spend government.

Taxes. Another expense that I cannot control.

Taxes and monetary policy will, no doubt, continue to impact our finances during our retirement years.

A 13% luxury tax on our motorcoach would have been a significant financial challenge. Bad enough that we had to battle with the dealer on hedging our currency risk — we had our coach custom built and CAD was volatile during the 9 months from when we placed our order until we received our motorhome.

We were able to fix the price on order as opposed to on delivery.

CAD did fall further during that time so we wound up not losing money due to currency fluctuation.

BC car tax

Understanding BC Used Car Taxes (And How Luxury Tax Works)

In British Columbia, where you buy, the price you pay, and the type of used car all factor into how your car taxes are calculated.

It’s a little confusing but as a wise person once said, “knowledge is power”. In this case, that knowledge can help you make sense of what you’re paying and why you’re paying it. It might even help you save some cash. 

How car sales taxed in BC - Do you pay GST and PST? 

Car sales are taxed differently in each province but British Columbia is probably the quirkiest of them all. For example, things are pretty straightforward in Alberta, where there’s no provincial sales tax . That means you pay 0% taxes on any privately sold used vehicle you buy there. 

Compare that with BC, where there’s not only provincial sales tax (PST) to contend with but the rate of that tax fluctuates depending on a few different factors. 

In BC, you’ll find yourself dealing with a few different tax acronyms: 

  • GST = Federal Goods and Services Tax 
  • PST = Provincial Sales Tax 
  • HST = Harmonized Sales Tax 

GST is set at 5% across Canada and you’ll pay that on any vehicle—new or used—purchased at any dealership. You’ll also have to pay PST, which can be anywhere from 7-20% depending on the sale price of the vehicle, and where you purchased it. HST refers to the total of both taxes you pay. 

For example, here’s a breakdown of the taxes you’d pay at a dealership on a new or used vehicle priced under $55,000 in BC: 

Do you have to pay tax on used cars in BC? 

You do have to pay tax on a used car in BC, but when it comes to how those taxes are calculated and paid, there’s a difference between buying a used car in a dealership versus through a private sale. 

Tax on a used car at a dealership 

At a dealership, you’ll pay a combination of GST and PST on the purchase of a used car. The GST is set at 5% and the rate of PST you pay depends on the sale price of the vehicle. For vehicles under $54,999.99 the PST rate is 7% and it increases from there, all the way to 20% PST for a a vehicle with a purchase price over $150,000: 

Tax on a used car in a private sale 

In a private sale, you’ll only have to pay PST on the purchase. But there’s a catch: Even though you’re not paying GST, the PST rate is higher on privately sold vehicles in BC, as a way of essentially making up the difference from the missing GST. In BC, the PST rate for vehicles under $125,000 is 12%, and goes up from there.

Paying PST on a privately sold used vehicle

When you buy a used car at a dealership (or online retailer) paying PST is simple. You pay it at the time of sale as part of the purchase price, so it’s all pretty straightforward. When you’re buying a used vehicle from a private seller, paying PST isn’t as cut and dry. 

In cases where a vehicle is purchased from a private seller, PST is typically calculated and collected when the buyer goes to register that vehicle with ICBC. 

Documentation required for PST on private sales 

When you go to register a car you bought from a private seller, ICBC will need some key pieces of documentation on the sale. Most importantly, you’ll need to provide proof of the purchase price you paid or, if the vehicle was a gift, documentation of the vehicle’s fair market value. Make sure you receive proper documentation on the sale from the buyer before completing the transaction. 

If the private seller you purchased the vehicle from is registered to collect PST, they’re required to collect PST from you at the time of sale. In these rare cases, make sure you have documentation from the seller proving you paid PST on the sale and bring this with you to ICBC when you register the car. 

How PST is calculated at ICBC 

When registering your vehicle, ICBC will look at the purchase price and assess it against what’s considered a fair market value for that vehicle. From this, they’ll determine the amount of PST you’ll need to pay. This is done to prevent buyers and sellers from frauding the system in order to pay less PST. 

For example, if you and a buyer agree to a purchase price of $5,000 on a used car, you might expect to pay $600 in PST (12%) on that at the time of registration with ICBC. However, if ICBC deems the purchase price was below the fair market value of the vehicle, they’ll charge you PST on the fair market value. Let’s say ICBC considers the fair market value to be $10,000. In that case, you’ll be required to pay $1,200 in PST.

If you disagree with ICBC’s assessment of the vehicle’s value, you’ll have to pay for a mechanic to do an appraisal on why the vehicle is worth less. 

What’s the BC luxury car tax? 

The BC luxury car tax is often-cited but little understood. It’s really just referring to the thresholds at which PST increases, depending on the purchase price of a vehicle. Whether you buy a used car from a dealership or a private seller, the amount of PST you’ll need to pay will fluctuate depending on the purchase price. 

PST for new or used vehicles purchased in BC

How is luxury tax calculated? 

The first threshold is $55,000. If you buy a used car under this price, you’ll pay a PST rate of 7%. At the top end of the spectrum is where the tax increases really start to take a bite. For vehicles over $125,000 you’re looking at 15%, and for vehicles over $150,000 the rate jumps to a whopping 20%. So if you’re thinking about picking up a high-priced luxury supercar, you’ll need to budget well beyond the sticker price. 

For example, let’s say you’re buying a shiny new-to-you Lamborghini for $150,000. At 20% PST, you’ll be looking at an additional $30,000 on top of the purchase price. Yikes. And don’t forget, if you’re buying that used Lambo from a dealership you’ll also be paying 5% GST as well, which amounts to another $7,500. 

Tax breaks for used zero-emission electric vehicles 

These days there are plenty of reasons to consider switching to a zero-emission electric vehicle. From rapidly rising gas prices to concerns over the environment, going EV is an increasingly popular option with Canadians. But now you can add tax breaks to the list of reasons to switch as well. 

If you buy an eligible used electric vehicle in BC, either from a dealership or a private seller, the PST thresholds are considerably higher, meaning you can buy a higher priced vehicle and pay a lower PST rate. For example, you’ll pay 7% PST on any eligible used EV under $75,000. At that same price on a gas-powered car or truck, you’re looking at 10% PST. 

Less taxing, more relaxing

If all of this is enough to make your head spin, there’s an easier way. At Canada Drives the prices you see are the prices you’ll pay. The total tax is included in the price breakdown of every vehicle in the Canada Drives inventory, so there’s no guessing games or stomach-turning surprises when it’s time to pay. 

We think buying a car should be simple and straightforward. Take a look at what’s in stock today. Your next ride could be waiting.

What to know about bringing a vehicle to BC from another province

Posted in Life events (moving, funerals, etc.) , Vehicles on 2021-09-22 by Amanda (Consumer Protection BC) :: Comments (1)

If you’re planning on bringing a vehicle from another province to BC, there are some important things to know. With information from ICBC , here’s what you’ll need to do.

If you’re bringing a vehicle from another province or territory, before the vehicle can be registered, licensed, and insured in BC, you’ll need to bring these documents to an Autoplan broker:

  • the vehicle’s current registration
  • the Certificate of Title if your vehicle is from Nova Scotia
  • a “passed” vehicle inspection report* from a designated inspection facility in BC
  • required ID
  • a signed and dated bill of sale, if the vehicle is not registered in your name. (Sometimes a vehicle registration document, signed by the registered owner of the vehicle and naming you as the new owner, is acceptable instead.)

For more information, check out ICBC’s Checklist for Out-of-Province Vehicle Registration .

*Safety inspection exemptions

If you’re bringing a vehicle from Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba, qualified privately-owned or leased vehicles may be exempt from the BC pre-registration safety inspection. Check out this page from ICBC for more information on eligibility.

One other thing, I was in the military and come back from Germany in 1979 and bought a new car in Kingston Ontario. I then holidayed in Quebec and Ontario for about 30 days then drove it to Chilliwack BC. When I went to register the vehicle I was told I would have To pay BC taxes on it. I argued this point and someone there come up with Settlers Effects. No taxes paid.

B.C. used car buyers furious over provincial tax changes that have them paying more

Government says regulation change brings b.c. in line with other provinces.

used travel trailer tax in bc

Social Sharing

Instead of driving the 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck he purchased in a private sale last month, Chris Lethbridge has it parked, uninsured, at his home in Salmon Arm, B.C.

If the truck gets damaged or stolen, he knows he won't be able to file an insurance claim. Nonetheless, there it sits with no financial protection on it and no additional kilometres rolling on the odometer.

"It's an $11,000 paperweight sitting in my driveway," Lethbridge told CBC's Daybreak South . "And I'm not the only one in the province who's dealing with this."

On Oct. 1, a new provincial regulation around the sale of private vehicles came into effect.

Instead of paying 12 per cent provincial sales tax (PST) on the actual sale price of a vehicle at the time of purchase, buyers must now pay PST at the time of registration — with the tax based on the vehicle's average wholesale value in the Canadian Black Book valuation guide.

That has Lethbridge, and others like him, upset and calling for action.

Lethbridge says he paid $2,100 for his Dodge Ram in a private sale. But when he went to register the vehicle, he was told by the insurance agent it had a Canadian Black Book value of $11,000, and he had to pay PST on that amount.

"I was a little bit dumbfounded," Lethbridge said.

Lethbridge said he obtained a temporary operating permit so he could drive the truck from nearby Kamloops, where he made the purchase, back to Salmon Arm.

With the truck now gathering dust, Lethbridge says he has been trying to find a satisfactory resolution to his situation.

"There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel. There has to be."

Changes bring B.C. in line with other provinces, says government

The provincial government says it made the change to prevent buyers from understating the vehicle purchase price in private transactions and then paying PST on those lower numbers. That loophole, it said, could create an annual PST revenue shortfall of close to $30 million.

Buyers who want to dispute the list value can hire a qualified appraiser to assess their vehicle's value and present the appraisal to the Insurance Corporation of B.C. (ICBC), the provincial auto insurer, at the time of registration.

The guidelines state that if the appraised value and the price paid are both less than the average wholesale value in the Canadian Black Book guide, the amount of PST due is calculated on the greater of the price paid and the appraised value of the vehicle.

Paying for an appraisal, however,  is the responsibility of the buyer.

In an emailed statement to CBC, Finance Minister Selina Robinson says the change brings B.C. "in line with how most other provinces are already administering sales taxes on these vehicles."

Robinson also pointed out the appraisal option available to buyers.

Online petition calls for change

Graham Hugill is also upset with the new regulation.

The resident of 150 Mile House in the B.C. Interior said he bought a 2015 Ford F-350 truck for $35,000 in a private sale. He said he had all the paperwork with him when he went to register the vehicle and was told he had to pay PST based on a Canadian Black Book value of $47,240.

"It's theft, basically, from me," Hugill said.

As is the case with Lethbridge, Hugill has the truck sitting at home, unregistered.

In protest of the new regulation, Hugill has started an online petition. As of Thursday afternoon, it had close to 7,000 signatures.

"I started the petition, because I'm a 60-year-old man, and now I'm getting tired of being taxed to death."
