Re: Canadian resident registering boat in US. Duty question

Tax evasion is criminal, but applies if you actually owe the taxes and lie about not owing them.

Tax avoidance is not criminal and applies when you follow the rules and don't owe them.

The OP is clearly asking about tax avoidance. When you ask the guy with his hand out for advice on how to legally not pay him, you wonder if there might be a better idea out there when he says you owe him no matter what. That's legit.

Its become a recent revelation to me that there are so many Canadians that use the US to legally avoid their own taxes.
