So regardless of Private Party or dealer, Used or New, there will be Sales Tax and VLC to pay? Even though the previous owner already paid the state sales tax initially?

I've heard due to "fraud", DMV's have moved over to using their own book on proposed value of the vehicle to estimate the tax rather than BoS. Is this the case for all DMV? Just some?
