The same thing happened at Turkey Point Marina. A friend of mine has his boat reg out of state at his other home and has a home in Md. He moves the boat every winter out of the marina but they claim to see it on the bay all the time and are still trying to collect the tax from him. The man is always looking for out of state reg. I see him even in the parking lots of the marinas looking at stored boats and the tow vehicle hooked up to it. Bottom line.............................................. ......They WILL get the money one way or the other!

aren't most of them like 60 or 90 days in a row? if it isn't a big cruiser, just pull it out every couple of months and take it and wash it and fill it up somewhere else and take a pic... that is how it is written in MO, has to be 60 days straight i believe before they want some money....

I have done this for 4-5 years so far. It helps that my boat moves from our dock to my back yard occasionally and spends the winter in an indoor building,...makes it harder to track. I have DL numbers on my boat and pay a small amount to register it in that state. I use a Company in DL that handles all this stuff. They have over 7,000 corps. set up for people that have boats and airplanes. $3XX.00 the first year to set-up and $140ish each year in cost to maintain corp status. Sales tax in VA would have been much worse.

California used to have an exemption on sales tax if the boat was owned somewhere else for 90 days.. Many people were taking delivery in a port in Mexico... waiting 90 days and then bringing the boat into the state... They just changed the law from 90 days to 365,,, So... if you want to wait a year without having your boat in the US.. then you can save on the sales tax here. I'd rather do the Delaware deal.. Keep the boat there for a year and then bring it to California.
