Curbstoning – The act of selling at the curb without benefit of a license.

Who is a curbstoner? He/She is an individual;

  • That buys vehicles ( may be only one) with the intent to sell them for a profit

  • Who is not a licensed motor vehicle dealer

  • Does not have a local business license

  • Does not pay state taxes

  • Does not pay federal taxes

  • Does not have any overhead

  • Uses property belonging to others for display of vehicles
    (Property owners can be held liable for allowing the display)

  • In many cases “jumps title”, thereby obscuring the identity of the true seller and evading payment of tax and title fees

  • Jumping titles is a criminal offense and can be charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor, pay a fine not to exceed $2,500, and be sentenced to not more than 12 months in jail

Under recent legislation the law may now be enforced by local police and zoning departments.
