Calculating the Purchase & Use Tax
Purchase and Use Tax is due at the time of registration and/or title at a percentage of the purchase price or the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) clean trade-in value, whichever is greater, minus value of trade-in vehicle or any other allowable credit.
If registering by mail (mailing address) include a printed NADA valuation (dated in the last 7 days) with your paperwork.
