I whimpered a bit when I got my New York 2011 registration for my 5er - it went from $167/year to $187/year. But after reading some of what others pay, I'm smiling.

I think some of those discrepancies are the apple vs orange syndrome. Some of us are talking trailers, others MH's. If I add my truck to the yearly license fee. it goes up somewhat ('nother $50 bucks a year). I did pay sales tax (7%) on the difference between sale and trade in - and in both cases, several thousand dollars. Now, since we will be (hopefully) emigrating to VA sometime this year, that will be a different story with the yearly personal property taxes - but even much of that will be more then compensated for lower home taxes as well as lower utility bills.

Not all VA tax jurisdictions have personal property tax on RVs, boats and planes.

Yes, I am aware of that as well as some cities and counties tax at different rates for different things. Confusing to say the least

Another quirk in MI is the licensing discrepancy between motorized vehicles and trailers. Motorized vehicles have to be registered yearly based on value (hence my $700 per year) while trailers have a once lifetime charge for registration. For the most expensive 5er, the cost would be $200.

We have no state income tax in Florida.... I'm not sure a P.O. Box will qualify for residency, I think you have to have an actual street address. I do know in order to rent a P.O.Box you must have a street address or they won't rent to you, it's part of Homeland Security (I have a P.O.Box for my business).

A P.O. box cannot be used as a legal address, you must use a mail forwarding service.

Hooey. There have been many years that our official address was a PO Box, both on our registrations and on our driver's licenses. We were truckers, and we were only home about 3 days per month, so we needed someone to hold our mail, and that's the way we did it.

I did the same thing, I was also over the road... Times have changed (think home land security) and I needed a street address when I opened my P.O.Box here in Florida or they wouldn't do it....
