A Case Study: 2023 Ferrari Roma Sales Tax

Let’s look at John Doe, a successful entrepreneur living in sunny, tax-loving California, who's always dreamed of owning a Ferrari. In 2023, he decided to purchase a brand-new Ferrari Roma with a base price of $246,310. Little did he realize that the California sales tax of 7.25% would add a heart-stopping $17,857 to the final price tag. Ouch!

Rather than just swallow the taxes as a loss, John contacted LLCTLC and we went through the process of forming his Montana LLC and registering his Ferrari Roma under it in Montana. By doing so, we saved John the hefty California sales tax minus our low, flat fees: over $15,000!
