An LLC, or Limited Liability Company, is a form of business organization that is a simplified version of a corporation. Because Montana does not have sales tax, it’s common for people outside of the state to create a Montana LLC as a way to alleviate tax burdens. By forming a Montana LLC, you can save money on your luxury purchases by registering your vehicles in Montana and getting Montana license plates.
Registering your vehicles in Montana
Even if you aren’t a Montana resident, you can legally purchase and register your vehicles in Montana under a Montana LLC with a registered agent. Once that's done, you can get your Montana license plates, registration, and title. Your registered agent guides you through the entire process and makes sure everything is in order and gets done correctly.
For example, if you’re planning to purchase a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, or other luxury vehicle, registering it in Montana can help alleviate your tax burden on that purchase. The cost of your ultimate luxury auto can easily rise by $10,000, $20,000, even $100,000 or more when you include your home state’s sales and local taxes. If you register your vehicle to a MT LLC, you'll be able to take advantage of the same zero-sales tax rate as Montana residents.
It’s not necessary to live in Montana to register an LLC in this state. You are also not required to purchase the vehicle in Montana since your Montana LLC is considered a resident.
Your Montana registered agent will simplify the process of forming a limited liability company by providing a physical and postal address for your LLC, as well as assistance with paperwork.
