Property Taxes

I am dreaming about moving up to "A" but the costs really add up. Not doing a Montana Tax Dodge Corp, but looking for other avenues to lower property taxes. Currently I am paying $3 per $100 vehicle tax in VA on class C. If I buy a new A I will have to pay 3% sales tax plus $3 per $100 property tax. The property tax is every year. Of course it declines slowly based on value. But $231,000 bus is $6,930 property tax 1st year alone. Surely there is a state more friendly if you parked it there.

South Dakota is a pretty good commute to use your motorhome. Bite the bullet and pay.

Here in WA it's less than $150 a year for license tags on our 2002 Dutch Star, no property tax on vehicles BUT almost 10% sales/use tax on the full price or difference if traded to a dealer.

That's a big change over what it was in 1999 when it cost us $2,400 a year for a $98,000 MH that was two years old. In fact one of the reasons we could afford a new 2000 Dutch Star was the $35 license fee in 2000! That extra $200 a month went a long ways.

In 2007 I bought a 2005 Country Coach for $173,770. in Oregon and when I licensed it in Washington State the Property Tax/Sales Tax combined with Lic. Tax and Fees were $16,774. It's about as close to robbery as you can get.

Unless you're planning on moving out of Virginia, you really don't have a choice.

Every state needs X number of dollars to offer services. How they collect it varies. For us in Oregon we pay no sales tax and very reasonable tag fees. However we have a state income tax. Unless you are ready to retire and select a new home state you only have two choices; Pay your state their share or forget purchasing. Anything else can get messy and expensive if you get caught.

We moved to Tennessee - no personal property or state income tax. Sales tax is higher though.

Texas tags on the Bounder are $300 a year. For Disabled Vets (me) $3 a year. Sales tax is a little high at 6.25.

But, to the OP's point, Texas has no ad valorem (personal property) tax nor does it have an income tax.

Ah! Check the news. There are a few people in high places, in Texas, that want to add an income tax. Just on last evening.

But yes, we have it good right now. DV tags for two vehicles are $3 each.

That was one representative of the minority party from Fort Worth who is making that proposal. Since it requires a 2/3 vote of both the Texas House and Senate (neither controlled by the minority party), the Governor's approval (who is not a member of said minority party) and then a vote of the citizens as a constitutional amendment since the Texas Constitution specifically forbids an income tax, the whole idea of an income tax in Texas is just so much political chaff in the wind. It'll never make it out of committee this session - bank on it!!

Now, back to your non-political posts as allowed by iRV2's Community Rules.
