I believe you can tell the dealer you are out of state and they can sell
it to you without CA taxes. You will present that info to WA when you
get your vehicle inspected and registered. You will then pay WA sales
Address fake until the SPAM goes away ;-}
I did the same thing with an RV but registered in Colorado. I paid the
Colorado sales taxes, once I registered it; the CA dealer wouldn't collect
them, or the CA sales tax. A big "but" though, he had to deliver it out of
state. We were in Riverside so we just drove to the border towing his
vehicle. Once across the border, we parted ways and he went back to
Riverside. Saved $7,000.
You could pose the question to your state Department of Motor Vehicles
and I am sure they could tell you the procedure. I.Care is probably
correct, but some states require special forms to be filled out and it
is nice to have what you need before you leave for the seller.
