Re: Skipping CA tax ?
Overboard..... Great link. It clearly says that Use Tax is also due on documented vessels.
.........purchasers of aircraft or documented vessels from any person other than a person required to hold a seller's permit by reason of the number, scope, and character of the person's sales of documented vessels or of aircraft, as the case may be and not otherwise specifically exempt shall report and pay tax to the board.
However, you are exempt under this circumstance......
However, a purchaser is not required to pay California use tax if the only
use of the vehicle purchased from a private party in California is to remove it from the state and
it will be used solely thereafter outside this state.
The nuance is what they define as use. I would assume taking her for a sail is use. I still wonder if keeping her on the hard until removed from the state is considered use.
