California has a "use" tax on any personal property bought outside
California with the intent to use it in California.

For small stuff, they don't seem to care.  But for an automobile, it is
nearly impossible to bring it here (CA) and register it.

BTW, as I recall the use tax is the same as the sales tax -- about 8%.

yeah, but this is for a car that will be registered, used, and garaged
in Oregon.  He can't get the option package he wants in Oregon, but
might be able to get it in California.  Oregon doesn't have a sales tax,
so he wants to be able to buy it without paying California taxes on it.

If you live in MN and buy a car in ND, you are charged MN sales tax and
outfitted with MN plates.  The visa versa is true too.  Do you suppose
California and Oregon have the same arrangement?

I live in Arizona, but bought my Prius in California.  I had to pay
California sales tax, but registered the car in Arizona.  I paid ten
bucks to California for a 24-hour temporary registration that had the
provision that I had to get the car out of the state within 24 hours
after buying it.

From what Google finds, many states have reciprocity agreements with their
neighbors, many don't.
