Tax and Title

Hi everyone,

We will be happy anywhere for a year or two. What are the State's tax, title and registration fees where you live?

Nancy and Phil

Good question!

Mi. registration is crazy. The price is based on the original retail price of the coach, and stays that way until the coach is 20 years old. Our Mi plates were about 550. annually.

We bought a second home in FL not too long ago, so I checked to see what the MH plates would run us there? We did have to change insurance companies as part of the process, but I was floored to find that our annual MH insurance AND registration fees combined, were less than what we had been paying for MI plates alone.... (identical insurance coverage)

Alabama has a 2% sales tax on a new RV, and license plates are about $28 per year.

They do have an ad valorem tax when you do your plate renewal, however. It's based on the book value of the RV, and is considered moderate by in comparison with other states.

Extremely low sales 2% taxes on vehicles are so attractive about being here. And property taxes are ridiculously low @ maybe 25% of property taxes in the surrounding states. My wife is disabled, and we have no property taxes. House prices are also extremely low--maybe as low as they go in the entire U.S.

Surprisingly NYS is very reasonable on the registration fees. Sales tax on purchase is another issue, but on registration the cost is relatively minor. Less than $100 a year on a 40 footer.

In Missouri, we pay sales tax based on the state, county and city combined rates, which may be as high as 8%. The annual registration/license is under $100. We alps pay property tax each year which varies a lot from one school district/county to the next. We are not the least expensive state, but not the highest either.

Central FL - sales tax in our county-7%, next county over-6%, no state income tax
annual tag/registration on our MH-$88.00
I know there is a higher one-time registration fee for those moving their residence to FL. Not sure what it is, but I think it's in the $100s

Hi,

In North Carolina you pay a one time fee of $1500 cap for new RV and plates are $28.00 per year. There is a personal property tax you have to pay every year and is included in you registration fees which is above the $28.00. In other words every year you pay personal property tax + $28.00.

We left Wisconsin behind (WI state rates have already been reported) when we retired to save 4 to 6k a year in income taxes. South Dakota is now our legal domicile. The registration on the Jeep and Camaro are not that much different than they had been in Wisconsin (I think my last car registration in WI was about $75, in South Dakota, $90). The coach is about $300 more per year in South Dakota than in Wisconsin (I don't remember the exact amount, but something just north of $400 per year). There is no property tax on cars or RVs in South Dakota. There is a 3% sales tax for the purchase of a vehicle or RV.

We might eventually change our domicile to Florida but I expect we'll eventually buy another coach at sometime in the future, even if it is 5 or 6 years out, and I don't want to deal with the sales taxes charged there. I am surprised to hear the insurance was lower for G.G. in Florida, but I don't know where he came from. Generally I'd expect insurance to be higher in Florida, certainly compared to most Midwest states.

Nancy / Phil:
To be specific, you're coming from out of state with an RV that you own and you want to know how much it will cost to title it in the new state? Might be specific - generally when someone asks about TTL (Tax Title and License) it involves a new purchase and most states aren't going to re-tax you on existing vehicle registration.

On the bold -
Michigan "no fault" laws increase your insurance premiums big time. Our Mi. policy through Blue Sky was 650. Fl. policy through AARP/Hartford, identical coverage, 450.

Note that Blue Sky was willing to sell us a Fl policy for 450. - unless - the MH would be spending more than 2 months a year in Mi. - in which case they wanted you to buy the Mi policy that's 650. No if's, and not a misunderstanding. I took that issue up the ladder a few rungs to make sure...

Hartford could care less that we have the coach based out of each home an equal amount of time (6 months).

Bottom line, it shouldn't be hard to see that sometimes it's good to check your options! -Al

All bets are off in a "no fault" state. Historically these states premiums have done exactly the opposite of what the laws were allegedly intended to do, both in terms of premium and litigation costs.

I think that in MI the problem is that there is no concept of "done" in terms of auto injuries. That is, there is no final settlement. The policies pay out for injuries over a lifetime... As such, big difference in insurance costs.
