I'd think Ohio. Sales tax is 6.5% I think Once. Plates are $49.50, NO personal prop tax ever, no special operators lic required.

This is the first I'm hearing about a personal property tax, thank God that didn't effect me here in NJ.

I'm with those who think it's another ridiculous way to extort money from us. How much longer until they come out with a breathing tax?

Does anyone know info on South Carolina. We are in CA currently and kids will be out of high school in 4 years. Trying to make plans and thinking about Charleston as home base. Wish we could move today, just finished taxes and CA just cleaned us out again, and I just loved paying the extra Obama health care tax.

I made several posts relative to South Carolina earlier in this thread. See pages 7/8. If you need more send me a PM.

I moved from California in 1990. Saved in several areas back then. Not sure about all of the differences today.

Note that there are differences between counties in SC. I understand that some counties allow taxing as a second home. My county only permits PPT as a vehicle. So the PPT on my MH is expensive, in fact much more than the property tax on my home. But if you buy a car or MH as a SC resident the sales tax is only $300.

If you are going to have a SB home choose your county carefully as property taxes vary. I am actually surprised at how low my property tax is, which is further reduced by being over 65.

I would be moving from there so fast smoke would be rolling off my heels. no way would I pay that to have a motor home on top of the other expense of owning one

Any info would be appreciated.
I just started a thread specifically on the TX issue in the fulltimers forum. Here you go:

I paid $192 for personal property tax and tags for my 1992 American Eagle.

For my new 2013 Cadillac SRV it was something like $495 for tags, over $800 for all our vehicles. This is in Indiana.

Be careful in Texas, the state was trying to put taxes on all the places in Livingston the Escapees have they were fighting with the state over it last I heard.

Texas has pretty high sales taxes, and toward the southern part high ins, and property taxes too.

I don't think its going to last, I heard rumblings while we were there of a state tax. And water there is becoming an issue.

The people that bought our house had their ins go to $2000 a year we paid $600, and their taxes go to not sure how much, but ours weren't high because we had owned the property for 20 years.

In Indiana Pence has almost gotten rid of the state inc tax, it was 3% and down to 1 something now. He is also letting big business and the farmers off the hook. Now what we will see is all this pushed into the local level so folks will pay. He claims it will attract big business, so far nada, now he is attacking school funding and did not take Medicaid nor did Texas so lots of people uninsured in both states, Texas serves a huge illegal population, somebody has to pay for it. So we now rank 49th in healthcare, don't think Texas is to far up from that and funding for everything is drying up. Trying to push vouchers and charter schools. And he thinks this is going to attract business, yeah right. Glad we are older as our stuff ages the rates will go down somewhat. We may end up with stuff registered in Florida if we buy a place down there.

Can you explain more about this? I know Texas just passed a law which ties their required annual inspection to getting your registration but what is this about taxing the places in Livingston?

There was a controversy about Livingstone. The folks living in the RV's there weren't paying property taxes. The state was trying I believe to say
they were permanent residences and tax them. Now we have been gone almost a year so it must have gotten sorted out, but I know they tried it.

I believe I read it in the real estate magazine that went out to realtors, they kept up with the trends. But nothing must have happened or folks would know it. Still if they tried it once they will likely try it again, wish I remembered all the details, sorry. Try searching the topic on the net, it may be out there online. If not talk to some of the folks at Escapees.

You mean the "carbon tax"?

As a resident of Texas and a property owner, I guess I don't see a problem with them paying their share of taxes. If they are permanent residents, that is. I can see where it would be an administrative nightmare with people trying to figure out all the tax dodges, however. Seems that many want the privileges (water, sewer, city services, police, fire, etc.) and think those things should be paid by others.

I always assumed that was what part of my rent payment went toward, and that property taxes were tied to property/land that the property owner paid. But I did live in one TX town many years ago where I got a property tax bill for my furniture/stuff based on the sq footage of the apartment I was renting.
