You need to check regulations of the state you are
moving too.

I live in NH, close to MA border. NH has no sales tax and high registration fees. MA has sales tax. If you
buy a car in NH, and then try to register it in MA, you must pay the MA sales tax before MA will issue plates. Also, NH does not refund unused part of registration if you move.

The bottom line in MA is, you pay sales tax on car, or you don't register it in MA.
