Looking into non-resident RV registration

DW and I are in the long slow process of selling our S&B home and going full time in our motorhome. With this being said, looking for a way to avoid paying the high personal property tax in SC. ($3500./yr) We are seeking advice in Non-resident RV registration in different state. Only one that we are aware of at this point is SD. Any thoughts from others????

TX, FL, & SD all do this. You can look up the Escapees RV club they run several.

Don't come to GA. 7% TAVT is killer. It is only $20 per year afterwards, though.

What's TAVT? Is that over and above sales tax?

Also Montana is a state that allows.

Webster defines domicile as we use it as full time RVrs as "a person's fixed, permanent, and principal home for legal purposes." There are a lot of resources available to help plan and carry out this move, and each state has different plusses and minuses for domiciling there. Just be aware that you will have to do more than simply register your vehicle there.

The SC personal property tax-is that on the MH or your house or both?

I am not sure exactly what you are trying to do here-move your DL and everything to another state or keep some things in SC?

You can register any vehicle in SD without you or the vehicle ever going there. You don't need a SD driver's license to register a vehicle.

We moved everything from FL to SD. It was easy. You do have to get a DL in person but that is a very easy process.

Thanks RMD3819. Eventually we are looking to everything but until our home sells, which could take a while, we would like to change our MH to SD now to avoid paying the high personal property tax on the MH it self. We would register our car in SC due to fear of nosey neighbors reporting us to the DMV . For now just the MH to answer your question.

You may have just done that.

Sounds to me you are trying to do something that is not quite legal. You can do what you want. We all make choices in life. We also suffer the consequences of those choices.
I would recommend you seek advice of a legal expert and not that of an anonymous internet forum.

Thank you for your comment. It is only illegal if the vehicle resides in the state of SC in excess of 90 days. That is very unlikely to occur, so therefore not extremely concerned about the issues you brought to my attention. Again thank you for your comment.

I currently live in a high sales tax state. Like you, when we switch to full timing, we plan to legally evade paying the high 8.5% sales tax (where we currently live) on our future $350K+ rig. In your case if you full time and if you want to stay a resident of S. Carolina but want to register in another state, your best choice MAY BE setting up an LLC in Nevada with no sales tax. If you plan on being a true full timer, you MIGHT be ok. Please check this out for yourself because each state is different. We plan on establishing a domicle in another state first for income tax purposes, etc a month or two prior to delivery of the RV. May be wrong but like it was mentioned in an earlier post, if you don't set up a domicle in SD not sure how you could purchase and licence a rig there..... Good luck. Maybe a full timer who has experience with this type of switch to full timing can help. Will be watching this thread. Spoke to an experienced RVer (6 rigs owned) and he reported he sees lots of NV plated rigs on the road. Make sure to keep receipts etc of your travels outside of S Carolina as proof of being outside the state.

Thanks for your input. I will be full timing as well as a property owner in SC until we sell our home. Thanks again.

If you will be full-timing, why not become a resident of SD now? You can still own your home in SC til it sells. Regarding NV, check on vehicle registration and renewal rates. They are high compared SD.
