Residency Requirment Limitations

I have read on a number of sites, various threads about RVers being ticketed for staying in a state to long, thus becoming residences and not registering and changing thier DL.

Has anyone run across a web site that lists each states terms of residency????

I know as a full time RVer or working as a temp. for a given period of time, it seems that some have extended thier stay beyond the legal visit time.

I never gave it much thought

Larry & Rita......You can go to the motor vehicle website in any state you have a concern and see what length of time you may stay/work without changing your license.

A lot of people are using LLC's because they're fulltimers and need to register their vehicle somewhere. Some are using them to defraud the state they live in.

All states, high or low taxes, still need to collect those taxes to provide services such as fire and police. When someone defrauds them by not paying their taxes, it hurts all of us.

I had that problem with boats if you stayed to long, You would think that the rent you pay would help, the manager has to pay taxes. But I ended up just paying the tax .

Yes, there called sales taxes at city, county and state levels, property taxes on rental lots or sites, tourism taxes on some attraction tickets and hotel rooms, I could go on and on and .. . Just as many states do. It is about governmental greed far more than providing any basic services. If you think my staying in a state any state without changing my drivers license or registration hurts them or you, think again. Any resident is and should be required to do so, otherwise it is simply a form of revenue enhancement having nothing to do with paying for basic services.

"Residency" can vary even within a state, depending on what you are talking about. A state (or even a city or county) may determine that you are required to pay a tax or some fee for a license based on different lengths of stay. You could even be considered a "visitor" for one purpse (e.g. the "visitor" tax on an RV site or motel room) and a resident for another (vehicle registration or income taxes). In many cases, being employed in some job may make you a "resident" immediately, while merely sitting around an RV park gets you many months.

It can get pretty complex.
