I wish I owned a supercar; I'd probably show it off more than I actually drove it. And I'd love the rush of going super fast in a Lamborghini. It turns out there are a lot of supercar owners in Montana. Kind of. You see, they don't actually live in the Treasure State, but their cars are registered here. Why do you think that is? The overwhelming answer is easy to answer; financial gain.

No Taxes Seems Like a Good Thing

People who live here, as well as some people who don't, know that there is no sales tax on personal property in Montana. So, buying a car here wouldn't incur extra charges. Montana also doesn't have a vehicle inspection law, so if you register a vehicle here, you won't need to go through those inspections that would charge for emissions and smog.

You don't even have to come to Montana to do all of this and save money; most people do it through LLCs, which can do all the hard work for you. Legislation was introduced that applies a sales tax to more expensive automobiles, titled the "Ferrari Tax," which was passed on May 11, 2017, just to try and slow down out-of-state buyers.

This Doesn't Seem Legal

It may not seem right, but as long as the LLC was formed the proper way, it's completely legal. The loophole does carry a risk of legal trouble if you were to be audited for dodging sales tax in states that have it. It all depends on whether you want to risk it for a cheaper car.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
