There are four states (last I checked) Which allow you to life elsewhere allmost all year, You do have to drop in for at least a night every once in a while but you can book a hotel room, or campsite for that one night.

SD is one of them

NV, Texas and Flordia are the other 3 (or were) Residency requirements may be different in the other 3.

The one thing that makes me wary of SD is when I'd have to be there.. (IF I can set it up so I renew my licenses in say August,,, NO PROBLEM, but in the middle of the winter... Big problem.)

Home is where I park it!

Sure glad I live in a state that only charges renewel charges every other year. Cars on regular plates $86.00. Rvs by size, probably 300.00 for small ones.

That certainly must be a nice feature for the real estate brokers in South Carolina.
I don't understand why real estate brokers would be involved in taxes?

Also, I believe there are ad valorem taxes in several states, including Georgia.

You have some flexibility. I think up to six months in advance, or with notice a few months after. A call to either the DMV or one of the mail services (we use "America's Mailbox") will confirm for you. And for the record, the only time you HAVE to be back in the state is to renew your driver's license, once evey 5 years. We love the Black Hills and, no doubt, will get back much more frequently.

It's not just South Carolina - many states impose an annual personal property or excise tax on vehicles. Some of them are: SC, VA, CA, NV, NH, ME, MA, and MO. I'm sure our members can contribute more to the list.
