Sales Tax Exemption for Pastor's Car?

Question:

A church recently bought a car in the pastor's name. How can he get the sales tax exempted when he goes to register his car?

Answer: 

He cannot.

Only vehicles titled in the name of a tax-exempt organization qualify for sales tax exemption. Of course, if the minister makes personal use of a church-titled vehicle, he is subject to taxation issues which are addressed in other postings on this blog.
