Save Vehicle Registration Fees by Moving Your Vehicle to a Montana LLC

Posted by MT Vehicles on Sep 21, 2018 4:49:58 PM

Paying sales tax or property tax on vehicles is one of the most aggravating aspects of ownership. Many people are starting to catch on to a way to avoid these taxes by transferring their car title to a Montana LLC.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably intrigued about how to avoid paying vehicle property tax. The idea is simple. You set up a Montana LLC, register your vehicle under your LLC, and then use it as a “company car.” Since Montana is a sales tax-free state, you do not have to pay sales tax at the time of your Montana LLC purchases, even if you drive the vehicle in another state or live elsewhere.

That’s why most people simply hire Registered Agents to take care of the process for them. When you use Montana LLC Registered Agents to establish your LLC and register your vehicle, you can have your Montana plates in your hands in a matter of days.


To understand the benefits of using a Registered Agent, it’s important to know what the process involves:

  • You will have to form a Montana LLC with the Montana Secretary of State.
  • Once the Montana LLC is approved, you will need to fill out the title application - MV1.
  • The application needs to have the Title and Certificate of Origin attached to it.
  • The application also needs to have the Montana LLC’s Articles of Organization.
  • All of the paperwork needs to be submitted to a treasurer’s office in a county that doesn’t have a county option tax.
  • The DMV will then send the plates and title to you.


Since we’re talking about transferring your car title, there’s an additional process involved. Before being able to register your vehicle in Montana, you have to transfer the ownership of the car to the LLC. This means you will also need to fill out a Bill of Sale that transfers the ownership from you personally to your LLC in Montana. The Bill of Sale needs to be notarized for it to be accepted.
