    Purchased last year (August) in DC, just moved to MD: do I pay sales tax?

    I just moved in April 2019 from DC to MD and have owned a Model 3 since August 2018. I'm getting the sense from the MVA website that, because the car is less than 7 years old, I will have to pay MD sales tax (6%) on the car, even though I didn't buy it while living in MD. It appears that if I...
