Question: sales tax for used cars in north carolina?
What is the tax charged for a used car in north carolina?
Answer: North Carolina Sales tax for a vehicle purchase is 3% of the taxable amount. The definition of the taxable amount is the amount of the purchase price of the vehicle less any trade-in credit. So for example:
If you were purchasing a $10,000 vehicle with no trade you would have 3% sales tax on $10,000 or $300. If you had a trade that is worth $3000 that you are using toward the purchase then the the taxable amount would be $7,000 and the tax would total $210.
Hope this helps.

Question: Living in Ontario Tax Claim in Quebec; Housing rebate?
I work in Quebec: I am paying for a room in Quebec during the week half of which is being paid by my employer. I was planning to file in Ontario. How does this work and how should it be claimed?
Answer: On an Ontario return, you cannot claim the rent credit for rent paid in any other province. It's only for rent or property tax paid in Ontario.
If you are living in Québec, you should be filing a Québec return. Is that where your permanent residence is, or do you commute from Ontario to Québec on a weekly basis? If it's the second situation, then you actually would still be a resident of Ontario.
Québec is the only province where you have to file a separate provincial income tax return. Ontario taxes are calculated on the same return as the Federal taxes. If you're working in Québec, your employer will give you a RL-1 slip showing the amount of Québec income tax withheld. You will need this in order to file your regular return properly.
