HAVERHILL (CBS) – Haverhill police are cracking down on drivers, who head to New Hampshire, to avoid paying the sales tax on their cars.

City Councilor Robert Scatamacchia says it’s a big problem along the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border, because the Granite State does not have a sales tax, and the savings aren’t exactly chump change.

Since January, police have issued 140 citations to city residents illegally registering their cars out of state.

Scatamacchia says 45 people have requested court hearings.

Any down time that Haverhill police have while on duty, they’re going after these out of state plates.

Scatamacchia says it’s not costing the city a dime.
