NC residents and RV taxes

Looking for some help from RV'ers in NC. I have done some reading and can't seem to find out or fully understand the tax implications of an 80K mh purchase. I know nc has their sales tax on purchase, highway use tax and property tax? I think that is it other than the usual tag and other fees…

I'm concerned with the property tax and estimating what to expect. Can anyone help me understand roughly what i'm up against?

Sorry for the remedial questions but in reading all the numbers I'm not making sense of it much.

Thanks all.

Here in my state I called the court house and got those same questions answered and got a few surprises in the process. Since we bought our coach out of state we have to get it inspected by a representative of the state fire marshal's office, as well as the sheriff before we can even get the title changed.

I guess what i am saying, I'm glad I called the court house with my questions because I would have never known about the two other inspections and by knowing, I will save time and frustration getting the title switched to my name.

I know what you mean. It all depends on how busy they are at the time, and who you get. My experience was a good one.

Thanks…from what I can gather…

3% highway use tax (capped at 1500 for class a under 26k weight), and then property tax to NC (wake county) at about a .614 rate per 100 of 'value'. Plus the other reg fees etc. Not sure how you got away without or I'm reading this all wrong? asked for info from wakegov but still very confusing…and I'm a programmer!

thnx

NC personnel property taxes are handled by each county based on their percentage of the present vehicle value. This year the NCDMV has came on board to collect the tax at the time of tag purchase. On our recently purchased Winnegabe One Towable, we paid $173 in taxes for a 32K TT.

I would recommend calling the tax department for the county in which you plan on tagging the MH in and they will be able to answer your question.

Jseltman,
You have the correct info. I also live in Wake. One word of advice, watch the assessed value. Wake county likes to assess higher than actual market value.

Thank you…I read that also in a few posts. I read on the wakegov site that you can appeal and I will certainly do that once the 'purchase price' has been reached. Thanks for the info!!

2nd'ed.

They tried to stick the MSRP from the bill of sale in as the actual market value.

Uh, no. The sale price is fine.

Youll be taxed at $1500 HUT as previously mentioned and for a motorhome with 80k purchase price, expect to add around $900 property tax on top of that. Dont forget the tag fee, license fee, raping fee (ok, that ones not true...), but yeah. Dont let it surprise you at the counter.

P.S. You know its bad when your fellow "patrons" hear the number, look at you and wince for you.

I got confirmation from wakegov that the two taxes add up to about 850 or so…for an 80K purchase. She validated they do use the sale price not MRSP…still one question though..

Is the HUT an annual tax? 1500/year owned?

The 3% HUT is a one-time only fee, assessed at time of sale, or if you bought out of state, will be assessed when you register it. Think of it as a Sales Tax!
