Registering a Car Bought in Another State

If you live around San Antonio you might be wondering, “Can I buy a car in another state?” Fortunately, registering a new Maserati bought in another state only requires a few pieces of documentation and a visit to the local DMV. Follow these steps:

  1. Ask for a bill of sale that clearly shows your purchase price.
  2. Find your local DMV.
  3. Take your bill of sale, a photo ID, proof of residency, and proof of insurance to the DMV. Be sure to tell the DMV clerk that you bought your car in a different state with the intent of titling and registering it at your home address.
  4. The clerk will likely return your bill of sale but may keep the title from the state where the dealership is located. You will be required to pay the appropriate difference in sales tax between the two states.
  5. Keep an eye out for your new title to arrive in the mail.

Taxes and Fees on an Out-of-State Vehicle

It’s a good idea to learn the difference between your local sales tax and the tax in the state where you bought the vehicle. The reason is that you will need to pay the difference, along with any applicable processing fees at your local DMV, near Houston or El Paso. If you have questions or concerns about the process, call the finance center at Maserati of Austin
