Right - I had to pay harbor fees in Mattapoisett with the last boat - still nobody asked me for sales tax - implies there's a timeframe of ownership the trumps a state asking for sales tax...!
The regulation for cars is still is six months, but the state changed it in 1991 to exclude boats from the six months..boats thus becoming forever...If you avoided a use tax after 1991, don't say anything more about it!
Certified...in several regards...
