Florida has a tangible personal property tax. It is:
"Tangible personal property is all goods, chattels, and other articles of value. It includes: machinery, equipment, furniture, fixtures, signs, window air conditioners, supplies, leased, loaned, borrowed, or rented equipment used in a business, mobile home attachments on rented land (carport, screened porch, Florida room, etc.) furniture and appliances in rental properties."

There is a $25K exemption.

This is the one to watch out for. I've been a resident of Florida since 1990. The intangible property tax has been on the books at least since that that time. It is:
"Florida's intangible personal property tax was an annual tax on the market value of intangible property, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares, owned by Florida residents and businesses. In 2006, the Florida legislature repealed most parts of the tax effective January 1, 2007 (Ch. 312 (H. B. 209), Laws 2006). In 2006, the intangibles tax rate was 50 cents for each $ 1,000 of property value. The first $ 250,000 of individual, business, or trust property was exempt ($ 500,000 for joint filers) as were many types of intangible property, including cash, certificates of deposit, individual retirement accounts, and annuities."

Texas is apparently based on weight. At about 18,000 lb., our 2006 Georgie Boy Pursuit runs about $170 per year.

Angry License Plate Fees

Arizona is as bad as California. We have a 2005 dutch star 4320 and our license was $2400.00. Fortunately we bought it used from a private party and didn't have to pay sales tax. I don't know how they figure the license fee but I am going to find out.

It's all relative but I've got a daughter in San Jose who we visit often and I know you've got a lot of problems out there. My view: "Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there."

Hi Brigadoon,
The only thing I can think of is that I have specialty tags (Save the Manatee) and special letters and numbers (IRV NKK). That doubles the cost of regular tag.

In Ohio I pay for a 9 month tag for my trailer at about $35......and I'm being a cheap-skate in not paying for the full year....With some people paying $1000 and up, that would sure tell me a state don't want people to feel welcome to live there.

*One other point* I saw a post where they said they pay $5 to go to that states State Parks...I'm all for that....The funding here in Ohio for our state parks decreases every year, everyone uses them, we should all chip in to help cover expanses.

My license fee is $50 for two years. No property tax on rv. State sales tax is 4%. State income tax runs about 3%, unless you are retired public employee from State then you are exempt.(Gasoline about $2.65, diesl $2.85)

Yeah, cb5300, I can't wait either.
It's going to cost all of $0 in personal property taxes.
