: You will have to have the owner (your dad) sell or give the vehicle to your uncle (permanent North Carolina resident) and of course transfer its ownership by transfering the title.
: The sell will require that your uncle pay NC sales tax on the current value of the vehicle. This value is the current value of the vehicle as set by the NC DOT. It makes no difference how much the vehicle is sold for or if it was even given away. This value is available at each DOT's office. You must pay the sales tax as well as for the title transfer and the NC license plate at one time for the transaction to be processed.
: The NC sales tax is 3% of the vehicle's value as set by the NC DOT with a $1,500 maximum limit.
: NC county as well as city (if applicable) property tax will have to be paid yearly by the owner of the vehicle as well and is billed seperately by the municipal goverment of that county which the owner resides.
: I hope this is helpful.
: You may want to really think about this before doing it! Just one situation that requires the insurance company or their independent agent to investigate why the vehicle was being used in another state could cause you a lot of headaches!
