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.
Thanks. I have records of the tax I paid VA when I bought the boat and records of the tax I paid MD when I moved to MD waters 3 years later. It seems MD has the records as well as there was no problem renewing my Documented Vessel Use Decal this year.
