Minimizing Taxes; Hailing Port
I bought my boat in NC (No tax)and had to pay tax in NY. Had I left it in NC there would have been property tax - Seems like they will get you one way or another sooner or later. You could always become a tax exempt foundation or claim that you are from another planet and therefore exempt. Not sure it is worth the effort though it is a bite my wallet still remembers. Or you could take it out of the country and have to deal with it somewhere else.
