Re: Live aboard legal address

Nobody here has advocated using a "fraudulent address". For purposes of receiving mail you can use any address you want and people here have suggested a number of different alternatives, such as a relative or a mailing service.

For the purposes of determining a "legal address" or the "state of your legal residence" then that is usually the place at which you reside, hold a drivers license or ID card, pay taxes, are registered to vote,etc. But that is not always the case. Many, many people have a legal state of residence that differs from where they actually live, for example those in the military, college students, people on temporary work assignments, and cruisers. In these cases the state of legal residence is determined by factors such as where you hold a drivers license, where you pay taxes, where you are registered to vote.

If you want more information do a google search "determining state of legal residence"
