How does the county you live and register the RV in know not to charge you taxes on the RV?

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.
Why, I thouht where the rv is garaged is what counts. Correct?

The Vets with a 100% disability rating in Georgia are given one Disabled Veteran plate and pay no property tax and $1 for your plate. They also give you your drivers license that doesn't need to be renewed until age 65

The way it works in my county is you have to show them a storage contract.

WOW, just WOW. I can't believe the taxes are so high on something like that. When did they start that tax?? Has it always been like that??

You should move to a free state or start an RV/Motorcycle rally around city hall. That's just absolutely rediculous to pay that much just for owning something. If no one pushes back during these so-called town meetings, then taxes are just a slippery slope upwards.

Come on now! You have seen all the post relating to states with no income tax or PPT. If you cannot move, personally I would sell my MH. No way am I paying that kind of ripoff! We moved from the outer banks of NC back to FL. For just that reason, personal property taxes!

As was mentioned earlier you have to look at the entire package. Many states do not have a PPT but do have various other fees and charges so the bill is there one way or the other. The 1% PPT I pay in NC doesn't end up being any more than many of the registration/use/weight/etc. 'fees' (but not 'taxes', dont'cha know ) I've paid in other states. Sure, there are some states that are a bargain and if you have an independent desire to live there then that's a nice benefit, but I've never understood why anyone would live anywhere other than where they really want to live to save a few hundred dollars a year. I guess if you live in one of the few truly abusive states then that might be a reasonable consideration, but when you total it all up and exclude the very expensive and very cheap outliers the total bill when you walk out the door often ends up being pretty close in most states in my experience, no matter what names they choose to apply to the fees.

Yes, the PPT in NC May be 1%, however on a 300k coach, home, boat, two trailers, truck and car that figure well exceeds the benefits that DW and I could recoup for a one year period! Then add the state income tax!! Fact, in FL. $100.00 yearly for the coach, which is a tag, etc. etc. bottom line we are saving thousands of retirement dollars yearly. You may choose to fund the Raleigh bureaucrats not us!

It all depends on the specific state. 24% of Texas' tax collections in 2012 were paid by the oil and gas industry based on in-state production. That, along with a conservative fiscal approach, means that Texas operates with no personal property taxes and no state or city income taxes (forbidden by the Texas Constitution). Yes, our real estate property taxes (which dropped when I turned 65, and not a consideration for a fulltimer who doesn't own real estate) and, to a small extent, our combined state and local sales tax may have been higher than when we lived in Ohio for 22 years, but net-net there are real cost of living advantages for us based on our living here.

This made me curious about what tax rates are being paid in different areas. What location and tax rate do you have?
We live in Ontario Canada. We pay 13% sales tax at time of purchase and nothing after that. Plates are $90.00 yearly.
Last year I stored my MH in South Carolina, Horry County (Myrtle Beach) at a campground, in their storage area. Just recently I received a tax bill from Horry County wanting over $100.00 in tax. It doesn't seem to matter where you live (even out of country) it is where you store your unit. This seems rather unfair as the MH is just sitting on property that is already being taxed. I''m still debating whether to pay this or not.
We do not have personal property tax on "toys"
