Considerations When Working with Spanish Speaking CustomersHispanic customers are one of the fastest growing demographics in Texas. Many of those customers rely on Spanish as their primary language. When dealing with Spanish speaking customers, dealers need to take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with state and federal laws.
Out of State Title TransferOut of state procedures differ slightly from the norm when a dealer sells a vehicle that will be leaving the state. Handling titles, e-Tags, and taxes can be confusing, but dealers can benefit from learning to recognize the differences and train employees to handle these matters accordingly.
For retail out of state sales:
- Collect the MV tax or get the Comptroller’s exemption form 14-312 signed.
- Obtain the same ID you require for in state sales.
- Give the title paperwork to the buyer within 20 working days.
- For a retail sale, issue a buyer’s tag and collect the $5 e-tag fee.
