Here in NY we also pay sales tax on only the difference between trade and new. Our sales tax rate is almost 9% so it is a pretty big number. I am considering the possibility of the Montana LLC. From the research I've done, it appears to be legal as long as you meet certain requirements. This eliminates the sales tax all together. In our case it would be between $7,000 and $8,000. That's a pretty substantial savings.

I saw this on the net, thought it might interest you.
NY and MI have tax agreements, so any you pay there is credited when you bring it in to NY. I bought one from these people and found them easy to get along with. To get a better amount on your trade, take lots of photos and email them. The salesman I dealt with is named Matt Walker and I found him to be upfront throughout the sale. I did have a few minor things that needed to be corrected and they couldn't have been easier to work with.
I bought mine in October and have really enjoyed it. The ride is really good and the mileage is so much better than the 2000 Pinnacle with a Titian V10 gas engine, that I traded. And Yes the NYS tax is hard to swallow.

Hope this helps
