Montana is the only state that imposes no sales tax on the purchase of a vehicle by its residents including resident LLCs. Since you most likely don’t live in Montana, using a LLC that we setup owned by you, you get to utilize this tax savings.
Yes! In the case of Thomas v. Bridges, 2013-C-1855 (Sup.Ct. LA May 7, 2014), The Louisiana Department of Revenue found out about the car purchase and claimed that the buyer personally owed the state over $30,000 in sales taxes, and tacked on an additional $16,000 in fines and penalties. The Louisiana taxpayer fought the tax assessment all the way through the Louisiana Supreme Court, where he was ultimately victorious. The court held that he had formed a valid LLC under Montana law. The fact that it was formed solely to avoid sales tax on a motorhome purchase did not make the LLC invalid under Montana's LLC law, according to the court.

To do your title registration work, we physically have to have one of our team members at the DMV so you'd have to be here in person and wait times at their office can often be hours.
