However, If you purchase your car out of state, you will still have to pay Sales Tax to your home state in which you register the vehicle. This means that even though you find the perfect car in New York, all New Jersey residents will be required to pay money to the New Jersey DMV.

But when you shop with us at DCH Honda of Nanuet, you can skip the hassle. Our Honda Dealership is authorized to collect NJ Sales Tax. This includes all New Jersey DMV transactions including registration and NJ plates. So if you find a vehicle on our DCH Honda of Nanuet website, you can still pick it up and drive it to your New Jersey home.

We’ll take care of all the paperwork at our dealership. And when you shop with us at DCH Honda of Nanuet, our DOC Fee is a set $175. This is a huge difference to other local New Jersey dealerships, whose DOC fee can be as large as $700!
