Licensing a M/H from out of state in Texas

Wow, I think I just got raped and no one to report it to. I bought a M/H in Tenn., and of course I wanted to licenese it in home port of Texas. Well here in Van Zandt county, I found them not to be very friendly!!
First, I didn't have thier new Texas application, which used to be filled out at registration by the clerk. So the first trip, I left with the form. After filling it out, I have a partner in the coach, so both names should be on the title. So 2nd trip back, i forgot to bring the "out of state bill of sale", so again I was refused and sent packing. 3rd trip, I now have a bill of sale in hand, and again I am sent packing because the partner does not show up on the insurance policy as a operator. Well folks, she is never going to drive this big 40 foot monster, so why does she have to have her name with insurance as a operator. I though the insurance company insured the coach, not who drove it, and since I stated she was "NOT" going to drive.
So I run to the insurance office and have her insured on a vehicle she is not going to drive to satisfy the lady in the Van Vandt county licensing agency. So we filally get to license it. Hold on to your seats, as the bill was $1630.00 so I can use it a couple times a year!! Ouch!!!!

I paid over $2200 before I walked out the door. Does that make you feel any better?

Be careful of the Montana Corp route. Here in Colorado they are charging people with tax evasion.

My guess is a large portion of that registration fee was sales tax. How much did you pay for the coach?

It doesn't sound like the OP would even remotely qualify to use a Montana LLC. If he lives in Texas and the rig is in Texas, then he'll pay Texas registration.

Oops, no it doesn't! You have a lot newer caoch than I.
mine is a 1991 Monaco [ and i take as much pride in it as you do], but wow, it was just their attatude. Basicly pointing to the door and figure how to get this!! It does not make sense to me to license a person when they won't drive it. The coach is to be licensed, not the person.

Down on the Naples dock a couple of weeks ago and there was about a 130' Yacht, the biggest there. Guy on the dock said one of our honorable US Senators owned it...it was registared and flying British Virgin Isl. colors he continued to tell us. Nothing wrong with the system they have set up for us, they take advantage of it, so can the people. Nothing wrong with setting up out of state LLC's in beneficial states, just do it right. Do the toad, do the mail box, do the insurance. The burden of proof as to how long it is the state lies with the state.

I think because you are married you have to add your wife. I will never drive my motorhome either, but i am glad i am on the policy to drive because there might come a time when i HAVE to drive, emergencies situations can happen. My driving would probably not be too pretty, but i will get us there

I think if you look at the line items on the registration you will find that most of the amount you paid was for sales tax... which is 6.25% for a newly purchased vehicle in Texas. Your 12 month registration, even with the new higher fees, is probably less than $400 per year. Also remember, Texas has NO personal property tax so the sales tax is the only "TAX" you will pay on the MH.

Also, you will be able to claim that sales tax as a deduction on next year's federal taxes - whether you itemize or not.
