Hello. My name is Alex. I will be happy to answer your question.Please note that any information is provided for educational purposes only!
Are you asking as to how you can buy a car in Maryland and then register and pay taxes in Colorado?
Is it a new car?
Do you already have a home address in Colorado?
Thank you for your follow up.
Generally, the purchase of the pre-owned car would be made using the Colorado address and the dealer would issue a temporary MD plate which can be used to operate the vehicle until the buyer / owner moves to Colorado and then the vehicle can be registered in Colorado.
Most car dealers would collect out of state taxes at the time of purchase and then would forward them to the state where the buyer resides.
I wish you the best of luck!
Yes. That would be generally correct.
