Default Looking for a good FFL near Sonoma

Hello FFL's, I'm selling a rifle to a fellow who lives in Sonoma, I live in So. Cal so I will be shipping the rifle. According to the "sticky" on the FFL forum for this transaction no sales tax is involved as I'm a private seller. My buyer is having trouble finding a dealer to help out, he says they all want sales tax, and he simply doesn't want to pay it. For that matter I already paid it!

Can you help us out and recomend a dealer who know the law and is willing to receive the rifle. Thanks, Gene

You might see if the FFL will call the BOE (although they might get the wrong answer). There are also some letters from the BOE on the sales tax FAQ thread and I think it says that within CA it is not subject to sales tax.

The BOE claims the sales tax is due if the firearm is required to go through a FFL under Federal law, which within CA does not apply (nor for a C&R handgun if the buyer has a C&R FFL).

If you ship the gun. It is not a PPT. FFL must collect sales tax. If you meet buyer at FFL then it is a PPT and FFL will not collect sales tax.

Correct.

Incorrect. If the seller is in CA and it is an occasional sale, not from a business, then it is not subject to sales tax. This also applies if the firearm is a C&R and the buyer has a C&R FFL when the firearm is outside of CA.

Not always correct. If the FFL finds the buyer/seller or gets involved in the price, then sales tax is due.

Not sure about his tax polices, but Sportsman's Armsin Petaluma is worth contacting.
