Nope in the eyes of the DVLC they have not received payment for the duty due on the car so the car is not taxed and the onus is on you to ensure your vehicle carries a valid and current V.E.D disc.
I would tax the car as has been already suggested and then argue the point with the issuing dealer/DVLC as you don't want a fine/points or be unable to use your vehicle.
Better to be safe than sorry, yes it is very annoying to be let down by a dealer when you acted in good faith.
Is the dealer you purchased the car from a V.E.D issuing dealer ?
