Why are people registering their already expensive cars out of state? Well we’re gonna tell ya!

      3:56 actually, it's better to go from Texas to New Mexico. Texas does emissions testing while New Mexico does not.

        When people talk about buying a Land Rover or Range Rover I burst out in laughter as it is quite possibly the least reliable car you can buy, so when he said to buy one that was 25years old I fell out of my chair because of how dumb you would have to be to buy that

              In some cases it's not even through a shell company, especially in the case of Vermont tags. You see, Vermont isn't just a sales tax haven, it's also a corporate tax haven. Many corporations incorporate in Vermont in order to reduce overhead on corporate income tax. I've actually considered it myself when I start up my company - not because I just don't want to pay taxes, mind you, but because I'll likely be starting out-of-pocket and I'll need every opportunity to reduce overhead I can get during the months or even years it takes to actually become profitable.

                  We used to have a lot of cars that were registered in the state of Maine but then the local officials started cracking down on these main registrations who were people who did not actually live in our state.

                              Wealth. It comes from the allowances built into our economy. So when you make this money and refuse to pay your fair share of taxes it makes you a rich piece of shit and the opposite of a patriot. :) have a wonderful day

Stop using the money for welfare and social programs for illegals. Some of my cars are registered in California others are in a different state. Why you ask. Because I have a home in the other state as well.

                                                                                              I don't understand how this gets you past having your driver's license and car registered in separate states. As far as I know, that's still illegal. The only thing that got me out of a ticket for having a Florida driver's license and my car registered in North Carolina was an active duty military ID card.

                                                                                              Also I live in Florida. I don't think I've ever seen Montana or Vermont plates. Let alone a super car from either of those states. I do see super cars on the daily though. With FLA tags.

                                                                                                But, it is against federal law to have your car registered in a different state than your license.. and I'm trying to understand how you get around that law.
