Funny you believe ***ing out of state is cheaper... If you finance the machine, automatically the mfg sends to your state a copy of the UCC filing., So trying to hide from state taxes is only a short thing until they catch up with you.. Some states and maybe PA does or does not,, eliminates sales tax if you are a legitimate farm.. Check into this...
The other thing, living in New England area and we pay some of the highest prices in the country for equipment. I bought my tractor from a PA dealer, when, shipped to my home, was many, many thousands cheaper than ***ing here... Even including the 6% CT sales tax.. I *** all oil and filters from the same dealer and recommend this same dealer to anyone in my neighborhood that is looking for a tractor or implement..
This morning I woke up with nothing to do.. It is now afternoon, and I have over half of it done.
Digging in hard, hard clay is much more relaxing to a worm than going fishing..

Please bear with us Toby. I have been trying to block out a flood of spa mmers using the word censor. I am still fine tuning it. Hopefully they will go elsewhere. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
toby, unfortunately you may fine that your state (and a lot more) subscribe to a national database that collects information about sales of items such as automobiles, atv's, tractors, etc. Most dealers report each sale to this database along with your name and address information. This makes it REAL easy for each state department of revenue to find you and send you a bill for the sales or use tax as well as a fine for not reporting the purchase and paying the tax. Too much of big brother in my opinion but that is how it is. At least how it works here in TN.
If you file a schedule F on your income taxes, you may be able to file for a sales tax refund but you will have to report the purchase, pay the sales tax, and do the paperwork. I did this when I bought our ATV's.
TPS, as far as I know, if you buy it from a dealer new or used, the sale gets reported. A friend who purchased a Honda ATV found this out the hard way when he recieved a notice in the mail that he owed about $700 in sales tax and a fine. I purchased my ATV's from the same dealer he purchased his from and that dealer sales manager told me that even though I purchase the ATV is MS and they did not collect sales tax since I was not a resident of MS, they were required to report the sale to a this database and the TN Dept. of Revenue would be apprised. Best to ask before you buy and find out what exactly is the case. I am sure this varies from state to state. Better safe than sorry.
