So Markk53 - In the states that I have lived, the tax and registration are paid to the state when you register the vehicle. If I buy out of state (which I did for one bike this year), the dealer charged me the state fees, but gave me a form for our RMV. The RMV took it as issued me a plate.
To my way of thinking, OTD is pre-tax and registration since the state fees are the same no matter where you buy it.
