Mmm, good thing, because I just put a deposit on one, every little bit helps.

Is that how it is in Cali?

We have the same with respect to the greater amount of state income tax vs. sales tax but we don't have the "standard amound for sales tax that varies by individual income levels and locations" part.

Yes, but probobly not for your state income tax return.

Standard amounts by state http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p600.pdf see page 5. It says 2006, but its good for 2007. You get to tack on sales tax paid on major purchases to these standard amounts.

That is assuming you don't USCG register it. If you register it USCG then all you pay is teh USCG stuff. You don't have to register it at all with the state or pay any taxes.

When did Nebraska get rid of personal property tax?
Last time I lived there, 1989 they had it
At least on vehicles

$78.50 for a 3 year sticker here in MN
Oh, and then the trailer tag is extra as well

OHIO is real cheap by comparison, 6-7% sales tax depending on the county, if you document then you aviod that, tag for the trailer is maybe $40 bucks a year.

No personal property tax in NJ but I pay over $10K on my 2 bedroom house every year. I think the sales tax thing on a used boat sucks,every time its sold it gets paid again. How many times can you tax the same boat? AS many times as its sold. Doug
