You think this is a good buy?

If I was to purchase a vehicle from a private seller, what is the procedure in paying sales tax? Will it be included in the selling price of the private seller? I live in the Riverside County in California where the sales tax percentage is at 7.75%. Sorry for the ignorance, I've never purchased a car thats not from a dealership. Thanks in advance!

This is the car I'm planning to buy:

You can also ask the seller to put down a lower selling price as well, when I sold my other cars everyone asked me to do that for their tax benefit.
