Lol. Hopefully the government hasn't read what you just typed. They do check everything you declare. Wait for the letter in the mail.

I got a retraction from the MoF and as such have to settle the difference by submitting a casual remittance to pay the outstanding taxes.

It was a fluke and sadly I lost.

I still think that paying 12% taxes on any used vehicle is a load of crap.

Besides the tax, an advantage of going through private is that you don't have to pay the used car dealer's documentation fee. I was dinged $500 when i bought my Cube.

Isn't that negotiable into the final price? What exactly is documentation fee? Carfax, Lien search, etc.? I've seen it from $399-$500. Or is it to cover the paperwork? At one time, the profit margin covered the salesperson's precious time to do this. Can someone who sells cars school me and convince me why this is worth it going through a dealer.

Only if both parties are careful about it, if they see the buyer withdraw 10,000 then the seller deposits 10,000 within a short time frame of the transfer papers then youre gonna hvae a hard time explaining

But of course if you space the withdrawals and deposits apart then it would be much more difficult...
