Can't answer your question. I suppose there is also state sales tax, at least in some states.

One thing to consider is that boats in Europe (the EU more specifically) will have VAT tax paid. This can be a lot of money (20% or so). Of course this only makes a difference if you are interested in staying in the area for some time before coming home, but this is what you indicated you thought of.
