California Personal Property Tax

I'm surprised I didn't see any comments about PPT in Calif. It might be because they're so outrageous. They probably register their MH out of that state to avoid these exorbitant fees. Anyone care to comment?

I think there were a few referenced to it. The problem Californians face is that the state is among the leaders in pursuing people they feel are "cheating" by registering their RVs in another state. Having different plates on the RV than are on the tow/toad raises red flags for them.

We live in PA - and the DW and I have been thinking about moving to another State.
But after reading the comments and checking taxes in different States - PA is looking better and better all the time. With NO PPT and only $81 bucks for yearly plates - we'll take the extra money in put it in the fuel tank.

In NC, personal property & vehicle tax is county by county. Mine is $.66 per $100 appraised value. The RV is currently about $350/year. The tag is $20 and safety inspection is $10.

State sales tax is 4.5% with another 1 or 2% local. Vehicles have max $1500 sales tax.

I live in Prince William County, VA. Lots of RV's are kept here. $0 PPT on RV's, $25 a year for a county 'license' and I get to write off my RV loan interest. Life is good!

Prince William County is not Fairfax or Loudoun County. They do collect personal property tax...to the point that their representatives continued to harass me to collect thousands, even though I know longer an an address in Virginia (moved) adn was i the process of transferring the title in my new state of residence. Actually given 30 days and threatened, even though the infamous VA electronic titles were the big holdup in the process.

VA in those two northern counties is no place to own a MH. And don't think you can store it in PW county and get out of Fairfax couunty tax, if you're a resident.

In regards to California, there is no PPT on motorhomes but tax is collected at the current rate when purchased and resold. I paid over $400.00 on my 2005 in license fees this year. Now if we want to talk boats there is a PPT.

Registering out of state, as said, can cause big problems.

Yep, there's no PP tax on a MH. We pay about $75/yr plate fees, but that's 'cuz we have vanity plates.

Virginia law is personal property tax is based on where the vehicle, boat, airplane, etc is garaged the majority of the year and not your residence. Virginia registration card lists the county the vehicle is garaged. Some confusion about this 10 or so years ago, but the Virginia legislation cleared this up.

Hi Mike,

I believe that's all correct. However, that only works for a motor vehicle with a GVWR of greater than 10,000 pounds. You're not going to be able to live in Fairfax and "garage" your Lamborghini in Prince William to avoid the personal property tax.

Also, Governor Gilmore's car tax relief only applies to cars...not a motorhome.

Take care,
Stu

I live in Prince William Co. VA and wanted to move further out into Fauquier Co so I can get a place where I can keep the MH on my lot (i.e. no HOA or Co ordinance of street parking). Found out Fauquier Co PPT is $1.50 per $100 of assessed value. That would mean I need to cough up $2700/yr. Guess I'm staying in PWC.
