Best Maid service in DC:

“Currently looking for a maid service to come once or twice a month. Anybody have any recommendations for the best bang for the buck?”

Excise Tax + Out of state car purchase?

“I saw the topic here ( about buying a car out of state but I still have some concerns about the out of state excise tax (

Does anyone have any experience with buying a car out of state and can they explain how the excise tax works? From what I understand, even if I buy a car in MD or VA, I will be paying only DC taxes. Do I also pay the excise tax? Does this happen even with cars in the district? Halp!”
