Re: US State taxes

Paul,

 

Impossible to answer this without details of where the boat is registered. Is it USA or foreign flagged? Are you a resident of the USA?

 

 

 

With best regards,

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] US State taxes

 

Hello Amelians,

We have been planning on sailing our boat-- purchased from a French owner-- to the US.  I am concerned about being hit for a large state sales tax if we leave the boat in one place (Maryland) for 2-3 months.  

Anyone know the lowdown on this and how to avoid paying a huge tax?

thanks in advance,

Paul
