We bought a used 2008 car in WA before we moved to CA. We went to get the car licensed here and they made us pay hundreds in CA sales tax even though we already paid the taxes and fees in WA. Frustrating!!!
I have no idea what the law is, but did you check to see if you can get at least a prorated amount back from Washington?
Poor Calif. They are in dire straits financially and expect the rest of the country to bail them out when they have the cheapest property taxes around and where I live they are SKY HIGH.
Benjamin Franklin once said the two things you can count on in life are death and taxes. I do not mind paying taxes because it is just money.

My friend right now has seizures and can no longer drive, so on the bright side at least you can pay taxes and drive the car .
I think it's outrageous, but not surprising that CA charged you additional taxes...you can expect more of the same now that the democrats control the legislature and executive branches. As for the previous person, if she doesn't care about her money that's her business, but sentient beings prefer to enjoy the fruit of their own labor.
