I have seen a few cars for sale in California having amassed significant back taxes according to the ad or having just been off the road for many years. Has anyone ever bought one of these cars and taken it out of CA? Did the back taxes need to be payed first? Or could you and the seller complete the necessary transfer papers from your state of residence and then have it processed there? Guess that’s kinda gray as every state is a little different. Mostly just wondered if those taxes could be avoided if the vehicle was to leave CA and not to be registered there. Am I making any sense?
