I live in Oregon and did not pay sales tax on this RV or my previous RV. I do think that paying $30K sales tax is a bit much, no? I have remote property in AZ and spend maybe four nights a year on that property. I do pay property tax on that property and they recently significantly increased my property tax because I have an empty building on the property. I am removing the building - it doesn't make much sense to me to pay a much higher property tax when I don't often use the property or the building.

We live in Minnesota. Don't care for all the taxes, but we're kinda stuck here. It's like being in the mountains without the mountains. Plus we have a lot nearby lakes. The kids have a lake cabin with an RV pad we had installed.

wow!!!! Did i say anything about not paying any taxes!!!!!

I think 10% is a lot over the edge. 5% would be more than fair.

I'd pay up to a 50% RV tax to live in Oregon, but not a penny more than 1/2% if I had to live in, say, Texas.

I know, I know I should have ignored this quote BUT I could not. How anyone would prefer to travel the cold, unfriendly roads in Oregon to the warm, friendly roads in Texas is beyond me.

$30 K in tax on an RV PURCHASE is RIDICULOUS! Yeah, let the California model of taxing people to death for being all things to all people, that state is FLAT BROKE, tax the achievers like France does now. What a way to run an economy! proof is in the pudding!

I'm not talking about traveling, or people...Texas is a very nice place to visit and in my experience folks are pretty much the same all over.

But this thread is about taxes on year-round residents, and to my way of thinking value-on-the-dollar is the right way to look at the question. Taking the money in is one thing, and responsibly spending it is another.

I think Oregon ranks number one in both departments, and Texas near the bottom...and for me, adding to that the climate (and sheer size of the bugs!) in Texas makes it rank dead last as a State in which I'd want to live full time.

Too bad you do not understand that those of us poor folks that live in the best state in the nation are wise enough not to get into this conversation...

DON"T RETIRE IN CALIFORNIA!!! It's too expensive and there are ALL THOSE SCARY EARTHQUAKES - STAY AWAY, STAY AWAY.

But if you do come to visit, welcome!
Please spend LOTS of money, make some friends then go home and take some of your new freinds with you

I like Texas, but there are getting to be too dang many Northerners down here wanting to make like the place they just left.

Florida has its pros and cons, but when it comes to being tax and retiree friendly, it is hard to beat.
