Registration and Sales Tax

Hey Gene.
I just ran into the very same situation as the previous post, but mine was in Florida. They have a use tax that coincidentially is the same as there sales tax. If you paid tax in another state you are covered. But if the tax you paid is less than their 6% sales tax / use tax amount, you must pay the difference, providing you are there longer than 30 days. Only way around it from my understanding is to set up a corporation in a tax free state and have the corp. purchase the boat. There were some threads on other forums (sorry I can''t remember where) It''ll still cost you several thousand to set up the corporation. Pay the piper I guess!
