Is there any advantage to maintain the Documentation...(transfer of ownership and Port of call) as opposed to just getting Wisconsin registration..? From what I see of the paperwork, documentation will cost me a few bucks...whats the advantage (if any) to me..?
What state did you bring it to. We are in indiana and have been forced 2 times to pay sales tax on boats we have bought in other states even though sales tax was paid in the other state. Double taxed, it's been a few yrs since the last time it happened (2007) and we have heard that might have changed?
