My point is States aquire their income in different ways. Some income tax, some sales tax, some property tax or combinations. That said your properties use resources from that income that are not dirrectely paid by that property, so I make up that shortage in my taxes. It seems anyone can justify an argument to save dollars in their pocket. Now since you have an address use it, pay or not pay the taxes do there, that is my point.

Now the DW has liver cancer so we probably will never be able to go full timing like we planned.
Most of us wrestle with things like using a Montana LLC to save some taxes or a slide won't come out correctly and then we read a post like yours. It puts things in perspective. I'm sure that we all wish you the best with your situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Re the guys living in Florida and their Montana LLC:

Florida doesn't have a personal property tax, so the only thing the LLC affects is sales tax at the time of purchase. With the vehicles owned and titled in Montana, you pay Montana sales tax ($0) instead of Florida sales tax (6%). But if they stay (reside) in Florida very long and keep those vehicles in the state, Florida does require that the vehicles obtain a Florida title & tags. There is a title transfer fee and a one-time "new-to-Florida" vehicle impact fee ($225). However, that is still much less than Fl sales tax would have been.

That would be a legitimate "tax avoidance" as long as the vehicle actually was out-of-state and later moved into Florida. Where it gets questionable is if the vehicle is bought in Florida, titled & taxed in Montana, but the vehicle itself never left Florida. Or was out of Florida for only a few days or weeks. If detected, the state would likely claim that the LLC was exclusively used to avoid paying Florida taxes on a Florida vehicle and that would constitute tax evasion under Florida law. I've never heard of that being applied to snowbirds (part time residents), but I have heard of prosecutions for of those who reside long term in Florida but tried to title their vehicles in some low or no tax state.
