BEST STATE TO BUY IN?

I am arriving from Australia want to buy an F350 6.7 to travel in for about 18 months.
I plan to ship the truck back to Oz.
The urea system is not yet in Oz.
I hear that the ommission system and tax varies from state to state.
Any comments of which state is preferable to buy from?
Would I be better in arriving in Canada and picking up one there?


Your comments please.

NH doesn't have sales tax either. Problem is, you're probably flying into LAX, right? If that's the case, any savings would take a serious hit just to get you out here-and back to wherever you have to go.

Oregon does not have a sales tax either. And would be much closer than the east coast from LAX. You wouldn't want to buy in Canada because you would then still need to come to the U.S. and from what I heard they are more expensive in Canada.

Sales tax is only relevent in the state you will be registering it.
Thats when the tax is paid.

Could you buy it in Mexico? The 6.7s down there don't have all the emissions stuff, but in all 50 states they do. I have often wondered about buying a truck in Mexico but I feel like it would be a pain trying to get it registered in the states. If you are going to be exporting it in a year and a half then maybe you could come up with another plan; maybe sport Mexico plates for 18 months.

Thanks for that.
So I can buy in LA and use a Oregon address?
I have a relatives address in Montana, is there sales tax there?

Regards,
Rosco
PS: This Mexican 6.7 sounds interesting. What are the pitfalls?

I do not see a problem with that other than getting your title and plates. You may have to do it in person for the initial registration.

Personally I would look into Montana as well, I know a ton of Motor Coaches are registered there for different reasons. But that state may offer the option for what you are trying to do.

The only pitfall with the Mexican 6.7 would probably be getting it over the boarder for registration purposes. I am sure there is going to be some kind of Tariff. And possibly an EPA issue... I don't know. Usually if it is to good to be true it will usually have some kind of massive catch. Again these are just guesses and I could be wrong about the entire Mexican truck.
