I was looking into additional savings. Every state, is different, but in CA you gotta pay use/sales tax unless the car was first used in another state or country within the first 90 days. I'll try to make this as short as possible.

Contract Signing Date Prior to ED Built Date: 01/01/13 (Example)
Build Completion Date: 01/08/13
Munich Arrival Date: 01/31/13
Return Car Date: 02/14/13
Car shipped back to US: 04/01/13

In this scenario, I shouldn't have to pay sales tax correct?

Here is a brief reference " If the property is purchased (delivered) and first functionally used outside of California for more than 90 days, it is presumed to have been purchased for use outside California. Storage of the property outside of California may be included in the 90-day period provided the property is first functionally used outside the state prior to the storage period."
