What is the Sales Tax if I buy online?

Asked by Dec 27, 2017 at 02:57 PM about the Ford Explorer Sport

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I need to buy a car, and I am considering buying online or out of state. I have heard different messages re: taxes

1) no sales tax if you buy online
2)you pay the sales tax where you buy it, and
3)You pay the sales tax from where you live, no matter where you bought.

I am looking for clarification before I buy. Is someone able to answer this?
Thank you!

#3. You don't pay when you buy, but when you register the vehicle.
