Motorhome Tag Costs - NW Arkansas?

We are contemplating moving to NW Arkansas next year to be closer to family. If anyone has a 40' diesel motorhome that lives in that area how much are you paying for your tag each year? Just trying to work up a preliminary budget. I am paying $1,500 a year here in Alabama. I don't know what County we would move to yet, but it would be around Rogers, AR.

Tags are not expensive in Arkansas....I think mine is like $25 or something like that.
What will kill you is the Personal Property tax that the county will charge you. It more than makes up for the low tag cost. I have older cars, a motorcycle and a 38' Fleetwood 2008 model. My PPT bill due every Oct is $1400.

And to transfer the title to Arkansas you will have to pay Sales Tax. That's going to be the big expense.

You may want to get on the AR web sites for vehicles fees. Oh...and sorry...it's 6.5% not 6%.

Do all states do this? This could be $10,000.

I want to clarify what I am reading here.

If I move from Alabama to Arkansas I would have to pay 6.5% sales tax on my motorhome that I bought three years ago? I am assuming this has to be done in order to get Arkansas tags. Plus I would have to pay personal property ("ad valorem) fees each year when I renew my tags on top of the tag fees. This is how Alabama is.

In normal times all of these questions could be answered by stopping by a DMV office, but this is not normal times. Everything has switched to online, which does not give you much info.

Google the phone number of a county where you might want to live and call.

I just renewed the tags on my class C. Because it’s a motorized vehicle it requires yearly renewal. If it had been a travel trailer, it is a one time license fee (why? I haven’t figured that out)
The yearly registration fee was $30 + $2.50 (listed a a “special fee”) + .39 for postage = $32.89
The fees are based on gross weight and/or number of axels.
Sales tax is Only charged on a new or used vehicle that is purchased and brought into Arkansas while you are already a Arkansas resident.
Moving to Arkansas with a vehicle already registered in another state will require a license tag fee and a title transfer fee, but not sales tax.
