Just like the title says, I'm looking to buy a used bike for track use and am wondering how title transfer and sales tax work in WA. Can I avoid paying sales tax? I know if I register it and get plates for the road I have to pay a "use" tax, which is basically the same as sales tax. Can I transfer the title to me but not register it for plates and avoid the use tax? Now, what if I sell it in a couple years to someone who wants to put a plate on it and I never did any title transfer or registration? Will I get stuck paying at that time? Anyone with first hand experience I'd love some insight.
