I understand that you can title most bikes with a MSO so long as it hasn't already been signed over to someone else. My question is about sales tax. Since MSOs are nontransferable doesn't that imply that in any case (whether or not you bought the bike used) you would be the original purchaser and therefore the dealer would have collected sales tax from you, for which you should have a document to prove that you already paid sales tax? Wouldn't this also mean that you should have a bill of sale from a dealer? Will they be looking for these documents or asking these questions at the DMV? Or can you just go into the DMV with a MSO and so long as it hasn't already been assigned apply for a title and pay sales tax? I'm in NYS and the bike is street legal--does not say offroad only on the MSO. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

i think that will depend on the state, and i dont know New York.
in south carolina, you will need a separate tax receipt, for when YOU paid for the bike. if the previous owner paid tax is irrelevant.
