    Utah Model 3 Reservation holder here.

    As we've seen in the news, Tesla lost the right to sell in Utah unfortunately.

    Are there any Utah guys here who have taken delivery of a Tesla?

    My questions:

    A) When I take possession of the Model 3, will they ship it to me? And is that included in the 1000 delivery fee?

    B) If needed I can fly to california and drive it home. Is this a better option for any reason?

    C) What in the world is the tax rate for new cars in Utah? This website (Sales tax on cars and vehicles in Utah) says 6.85% but a maximum of $900. Is that true? It doesn't look like an official website, and I see references citing all sorts of different information.

    D) Will I pay California Tax since I technically can't purchase this car in Utah?

    I guess in short, can anyone who has taken possession in Utah shed any light on the process regarding these issues or the general process? I literally can't find any information on the web regarding this topic, but I see Teslas all the time in my area so its got to be happening somehow.

    I don't claim to be an expert-but purchased a model X in Utah. They will either deliver it to your home or have you pick it up at the sales center. I did the sales center and very nice orientation and presentation. This is included in your delivery fee. 6.85% sounds right-but trust me there is not a max! Paid way more than that in tax! You don't want to fly to California as you pay their sales tax which is MUCH higher!
