Can I register a car in DC and avoid the excise tax?
My parents just got a new car and are giving me the replaced car. I don’t seem to qualify for the gift status tax emption because the car is registered in Maryland. I am wondering if there is a way to transfer the title to me and register the car without having to pay the excise tax, or if POP people have any other advice as to how I can minimize the cost for this process. Any knowledge is appreciated. Thanks!
