Purchasing car in GA, titling in VA.. questions
I'm getting ready to fly down this weekend and purchase a car in Georgia which will ultimately be registered in Virginia. The dealer charges a dealer fee, gives me 30 day tags and tells me that I then register it in Virginia (including taxes and tags).
1 of the 3 banks I spoke to claims that I will be required by law to register and title the car in GA, and then I'll have to retitled it in Virginia, essentially paying sales tax in both states. I've spoken extensively with the dealer, and they claim no such thing. The dealer has a A+ on BBB, and seems pretty legit. The one bank claims they can't give me a loan unless I title and register the car in both states, they claim the title won't be "clean".
Anyone have any insight into this process?
