I repeat, IF you have a documented receipt of the original sales taxes paid, you are not liable to repay any sales taxes to MD.
If you have No receipt in your possession and their records dont show your prior payment ... then youve got a big problem.
Warning: do not 'believe' anything that someone in the MD 'tax office' tells
you. If you speak to them, I strongly suggest that you request that they provide the applicable WRITTEN tax documentation/info or a website with accurate tax info as would apply to boats. If they make a 'mistake' in telling you any boat tax info ... it is your
fault not theirs, and penalties and fines will apply if YOU are wrong.
