I live in Nevada but am interested in a car in Colorado. What taxes can I expect to have to pay if I buy the car in colorado?

Since you live in Nevada youwill register your car in Nevada and will pay the taxes to Nevada. You will not pay sales tax to Colorado at signing.


Tom is absolutely correct, the sales tax is based upon the state you reside and register the car.
