Default Buying a motorcycle in IL from private party, how to title/register in MI?

I'm looking at a motorcycle that a guy owns in Illinois. He said the title is clear with no liens (which I'll verify via a fax or picture or something).


I can't find anything on the michigan.gov website about it. I assume that I just bring the IL title to the SOS and they'll charge me MI tax and registration, correct?

Or do I have to pay tax in IL as well since the title is from there?


EDIT: Found on the Illinois government site that if you buy from out out of state you aren't required to pay IL tax. Still unsure if the filled out title is all I need for registration.

Pretty sure you pay your states sales tax and fees.

That's what I thought I just didn't know if there were any special forms or hoops that I would have to jump through being that it's an out of state title.

Comminois is different. You have to go to their dmv and pay their taxes before you can take it out of state. If you don't they will mail you a bill for tripple what it would have been if you had stopped in the first place.

You must wear an 'I <3 Obama' shirt while registering motorcycle.

You don't have to, but it will get you into a lower tax bracket if they know you whole heartedly support our most glorious leader.

Wrong. Go about it the same as if you bought it in Michigan.

False. I looked it up on the IL DMV website.

Correct, Just bring in your Drivers license, the Title and Proof of Insurance, You will pay 6% sales tax on the purchase price,$15.00 for a new title, and your new plate.

Pay for it in silver or gold coins with the exchange rate agreed upon in advance. Then you only have to pay tax on the amount marked on the coins.
