I thought I had read that GA also has a property tax on RV's. May be mistaken.

Then why wasn't the word "all" inserted into "certain heavy vehicles" when drawn up? What defines "certain"?

I suppose there're pros and cons to registering RVs in any state.
Just find a state that suits your needs and go for it.

If government used the fuel tax for what it was initially started, maintaining the roads there would be no highway issue. Unfortunately the tax goes into general revenue and not the highways.

Now they have to make more money somehow. Not too long and there will be a toll booth on all of the roads.

You are mistaken, we do not have a property tax on RVs in GA. However, there were changes in the way all motor vehicle taxes are collected a couple years ago where you pay a one time advalorum tax up front with a nominal annual registration fee that looks like will increase as noted, vs. paying a higher tax fee annually. (Note sure how that relates to a TT or 5er).

Washington State never met a tax they didn't like. The Gov has been mumbling something about an increase in gas tax and they are always threatening a state income tax. It wouldn't be so irritating if they didn't piddle our money away.

Today I spoke with the Atty from the Georgia Dept of Revenue as to whether RV
s are considered part of the "certain vehicles" language.

Bottom line: They don't know yet, but guessing from his responses, I'm guessing RV's are "in".

I will advise when the GA DOR makes its decision in the rule making, which have to be implemented before 7-1-15

I live in Georgia and you could be unlucky like me and purchased your coach before they changed the law where you pay a one time fee when you purchase. I pay an advalorum tax every year based on its value. Nice topic for April the 15 th!

I believe the WA Weight tax is $50. Caught me by surprise when I reregistered her last month which took the cost to over $100. I guess that's still not as bad as some states would charge for registration.

At least you don't have a "Rain Tax", like Maryland does. I won't mention who came up with it, but it is rumored that he is running for the White House. And that's all I will say, lest I run afoul of the community rules.

When I bought my motorhome in 2007, I bought it in Florida. I paid sales tax on it. When I went for the tag in Georgia they wanted sales tax on the coach. I said I already paid sales tax in Florida. They said Florida had no reprocity (sic) agreement with Florida. No sales tax no tag. I had to pay another sales tax on the motorhome. How the heck is that fair?

When we bought our Bay Star in 2014 in Fort Myers, we only paid the sales tax on the temporary registration charge. When we got home to Maryland, I had to pay the 6% excise tax on the value of the coach, when I applied for the Maryland registration. At least, if they call it a sales tax, or a personal property tax, you can claim it on your taxes. If it's an excise tax..... BOHICA
