Property tax/ other

Going tomorrow to get some temporary tags so I can finally get her on the road and inspection doneÖ how do the states figure values on buses? Is there a website I can go to to get bus values so I can estimate about what they are going to asses it at? Iím in NC and itís a 1993 international 3700 that I paid $3500 for.

Just donít want to roll up tomorrow and have them tell me some ridiculous value.

I doubt they will come up with a very high value on a bus that is nearly 30 years old.
I wouldn't volunteer any info on what the conversion cost were.
Maybe you got everything for the conversion for free out of a old broken down camper....who knows?

My state taxes them at the purchase price? Shouldn't it just be sales tax?

You have a receipt that says 3500 bucks. That is all they need to know.

i am in NC as well and a bus i just registered this year i didnt volunteer the bill of sale because of some BS with it from the previous owner seller boy friend mess so when they asked for bill of sale i said i didnt have one.
bus hadnt been registered since 2018 in NC and they charge me a little over 200$
but this time they would only give me temp. tags and said i had to have the DMV inspection to mobile home/camper before they gave me permanent tags.
which doesnt make since my big bus was registered in 07 or somewhere around there and they didnt even bat an eye and gave me tags for a bus for personal use.
only difference then was that bus came directly from the local school district and didnt need an inspection or anything just change names on the title over.
good luck.
if you dont like the answers at one office just go to another one and you will get different answers.
