Registration Questions
I'm an Aussie moving to the USofA with my Yankee wife and two dogs in the next few months. Maybe someone can help me with a couple of questions:

At the moment, it looks like we might end up flying from Sydney to Dallas, buying a new or near new dealer vehicle (cash) and driving up to Cape Cod, where we will be living:

As I will not yet be a Mas. resident at that time, what happens with rego when I buy the truck in Dallas? I don't want to get charged sales tax in two states.

I understand once I get to Mas. I will have to spend hours at the DMV with title in hand and get Mas. registration papers, but will I have to first register in Dallas as soon as I buy the rig even if I'm only in town a couple of days?

Any other traps to look out for?

Appreciate the help.........and I even like your beer! :cheers2:

Why don't you just fly to mass. Then by the new car. Or fly to Dallas. Rent a car and drive to mass then buy your new car. Unless you know it is way cheaper to buy one in Dallas to buy one in mass.

much, much less hassle renting a vehicle to drive to mass and then purchasing there.

depending upon the vehicle it may come standard with a cold weather package you're going to want up north that the texas vehicle most likely will not have.
