Default Texas: Taxes on new completions?

For those that have completed and registered their new builds recently (within the last couple of years), what has been your experience with any Texas state sales tax? I'm getting to that point and don't want a surprise.

Thanks,

I paid use tax to the Texas Comptroller on the cost of the kits from Van's as I purchased them. I live in the county so it was 6.75% vs. 8.25%.

Which county are you in? Do you have an LLC, or did you pay use tax for a private citizen?

So it sounds like I will have to pay tax on the fuselage and finish kits. I was concerned that they would tax the entire aircraft value.

Comal County. No LLC, paid as a private citizen.

"Anyone who buys taxable goods and services that are stored, used or consumed in Texas from a seller who does not charge Texas sales tax owes Texas use tax." - https://comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/sales/use-tax.php

Above includes a link to the form to submit the use tax. After a lot of research, I was convinced that registering the aircraft in Texas triggered the Comptroller to check for payment of use tax and collect it with late fees, etc. YMMV.

Being proactive makes sense, much of my aircraft was purchased locally second hand, but for the two kits I bought from Vans that would apply
