In 2004, I was looking to buy a Toyota Prius but they were hard to find. I found one in Florida while visiting relatives. It wouldn’t be off the boat for another 2 weeks, so I asked the salesman if he could ship it to Arkansas. He said that they weren’t set up for that but that it would be cheaper to fly one way and pick it up, anyway. I had to be in Atlanta that week, so my wife flew down and picked me up on the way back home. What the salesman neglected to tell me, and I found out later, is that if you drive a car off the lot in Florida, you must pay the Florida state taxes. And since I live in Arkansas, they demanded their taxes, as well. So I had no choice but to pay double taxes on the same car.
