Re: proof of paid sales tax
I have noticed on some online auctions (in MI) that they state that the sticker has a registration date until sometime in the future. That would lead someone to think that they can wait until that date to register the vessel with the state (MI). That would lead to a problem as the sales tax hasn't been paid to the state DMV (or proof of). Which you need when you get it registered in your name. The state still thinks that the original owner still owns it. That could lead to a whole different problem in itself.
