Hey guys, sorry to post about this here and even more sorry to have to ask this, but I need help ASAP.
As some of you already know, I come from a state with no sales tax. Because I purchased my car there within the last year, the California DMV is going to charge me ~$1260 in tax and “usage fees”, that I must pay before I can register my car.
I’m supposed to register my car in 20 days, but that isn’t going to happen, because I simply don’t have the funds. HOWEVER, my tags from Oregon expire in October, so I can’t even ride that out for long.
Currently, I need 700 dollars to be able to pay this fee, and I need all the help I can get. I plan on opening commissions soon and setting up a Patreon as well, but until then, I am having to park overnight in a street a half mile from my place, then wake up at 7:30 every morning to walk to my car and move it, and then keep moving it every two hours until I go to work. I can’t get a parking permit for my street or neighborhood until- you guessed it- my car is registered!
Anyway, that’s an explanation of my situation.
It’s not life or death, so I hate to even ask this, but I’m going to post my PayPal in case anyone is able to donate.
Again I’m so so so sorry to put this on your dashboards, I’m just so stressed out and don’t know how we are going to afford this.
We got to Los Angeles on Tuesday and finally got moved in that night. No movers, no uhaul, just a car packed with everything we could possibly fit in it. We had to get rid of a lot of things that I wish we hadn’t, but that’s ok!
We have internet and basic things we need. I have to clear through a commission backlog over the next few days and will then be opening up commissions to pay for my car registration, since California wants to charge me sales tax for my car (because Oregon didn’t).
Thanks everyone for your support, and hopefully I’ll have some art to post tonight after work!
I use Procreate! If you get it, I highly recommend giving the manual a read through, because some functions are not immediately apparent. The app has a lot of touch shortcuts that are really handy once you learn them.
I’m gonna put off paying the fee for my car for as long as I can, however that’s only till mid to late October.
I have two commissions I need to finish once I get back from apartment stuff next week, and then once we move in I’m going to do as many commissions as I possibly can in rapid succession and just churn them out.
Thanks everyone for being so caring about this you’re all so sweet!
Oh god so something really just threw a wrench in my plans like twenty minutes ago and this is so bad.
I purchased a car in March in Oregon. Since Oregon has no sales tax, California is charging me 1000 dollars on top of my registration fees.
I did not budget for this but I have to pay this, and can’t stop the move…. Shit shit shit.
Sorry to post about it here I’m just freaked out and have no idea what to do.
