Ma excise taxes are obsene, my first excise was almost $2400 dollars. The money supposedly goes to the Town for roads. The only time my rig is in town it is being stored, the only time we use the unit is to get out of town.
Between excise & insurance Ma is very expensive for RV`rs

I agree with you Mass residents. I feel the tax is unfair. You RV owners should organize and lobby aggressively to overturn the law. Wis does not tax for recreation vehicles or boats. My license on my motor home annually is less than $100.00. If my legislator would consider something like that I do not think he would get re-elected.

I feel the pain of you Mass. residents. We moved into Mass in 1969 and left in 2003. I had a great job and made a decent living; but, Mass. is not for retirees with, excise tax, sales tax, income tax and whopping property taxes to say nothing of the exoritant real estate costs and insurance rates.

While living in Mass. I always said that no Mass. resident ever pays their fair share of federal taxes with all the write-offs that you have. I think the total of Mass. and federal is more than your fair share.

With retirement we moved to TN where we pay $24 annual registration, no matter whether automobile, motor home or what have you, no income tax, very low property taxes,i.e. our house, was new in '03, has 2100 square feet, a 2 car garage, a 20' X 50' RV garage, almost 3 acres and we pay $610/year. There is no excise or personal property tax. Yes, our sales tax is high at 9.75%; but, we are not here all year to pay it.sales tax on cars and RVs is held to 7%.

All in all I feel that our cost of living went down by 25-30% when we relocated. If you want to do a fun exercise go to Realtor.com and scroll to the salary calculator section; put in your origin zip code and the zip code for any other destinaion that you choose and put in your origin salary as $100,000 and hit calculate. It will give you what salary you need at destination to maintain same lifestyle. If it is over $100,000 the difference is the percent of probable increase; likewise if the answer is less than $100,000 the difference is the percent of lower cost of living you can expect.

CAUTION for those of you still in Mass. this may be hazardous to your mental/emotional stability, Ke, '04 DSDP...

The biggest shock is that I owe this tax [for 05,06&07] because the state didn't know how to figure it out for me in 05 when my rig was new!!So even if I register in another state I still owe it.I have owned motorhomes for 20 years in Ma and have never paid this amount.I used to get bills on G30,P30 or F53[chassis] only!!

I am finding out that a RV built on a F53,E450,P30 etc; chassis,the excise is on that chassis only not the msrp of the rv.It is very hard to get info on a retail price on a workhorse,Freightliner chassis etc,the state just uses the MSRP on the completed RV!
