Here, a transit sticker from a registered dealer is valid for 10 days, the car has be registered within that time at the license bureau. The taxes are paid at the same time. If you wait too long after those 10 days, you may need a mecanical inspection done.

No straight forward answer. It depends on where you live, whether you buy it from a private individual or a dealer, etc. Dealers will collect tax at the time of the sale. Private individuals are not authorized to, so you pay it when you register the car. The temporary period varies with state, so you need to check with your state's DMV.

Depends on where you are. In NY you have 30 days FROM THE DATES on the sales receipt and title to transfer the title and pay the tax. You don't have to register it if your not going to be operating it on the roads.
A temporary transit tag is good for 30 days. Oh and Massachusetts does NOT recognize a NY temporary tag.

Local laws vary. In some states you never have to register if you never drive it on the streets. Some states, some towns, have laws regarding unregistered vehicles on your property. If you have a big farm you can easily hide it, but in a small yard, someone may rat you out.
