I don't get why people are confused, in mn as of right now there IS a sales tax on new snowmobiles as well as used snowmobiles from a dealership, but there IS NOT sales tax on a used snowmobile from a private party.

What about Private party or dealership from out of state? That's the main question.

I do know new you still have to pay sales tax

Now Im not 100% but I think you should have to for used at dealership too(kinda a guess there).

But you shouldn't have to for used from private party out of state(almost positive), you should just have to pay the registration fee(7.50), and the trail fees(what are they like 60?) but no sales tax.

I'm buying a used sled from a dealer out of state, will I have to pay tax?

The dealer isn't charging me tax, so I would like to be prepared in advance before I go to the DMV and get bent over.

You pay sales tax at the dmv when you register the sled in your name. The same is true for cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, & atvs. I usually tell them I paid way less than I did to save some money on tax.

Every vehicle (car/sled/bike) I've bought recently has been "wrecked" when I bought it. Making them worth only pennies on the dollar

true. Maybe its just state sales tax but in every title transaction they ask you what you paid and then tax you off of that.

Call your local DMV to clarify. But you do not pay tax on a boat when purchased from a private party. However, you do pay tax on the trailer for the boat. On a sled I have never payed tax when buying privately. I did have to pay a registation transfer fee.

I called the DMV and the answer is you pay tax anytime you buy a sled from a dealer, either in state or out of state. And you do NOT pay tax on a sled from a private party, either in state or out of state. To further clarify, if you have a receipt/invoice/bill of sale from a dealership, you will pay tax. If you have a bill of sale/purchase agreement from a private party, you will not pay tax.
