You can't interchange registration and title, they are two different things. Title is a record of ownership and is the State version of USCG documentation. Registration is just permission to use it in State waters for more than a defined period of time.

You would not have oth forms of title, but you almost always have one form of title, plus a state registration.

Re: Proposed Registration Fees for MD

Use tax is also fully unrelated to how the boat is titled. That is only triggered by how long you "use" the boat in their State, if you didn't pay sales tax there.

Sigh. One fire at a time, please. Someone I know with the same size documented boat pays $10/year to MD. Still less expensive than $75 every two.

Not following the fire comment.

If the documented boat is paying $10 pe year it isn't Use Tax then, is it?

Since he and I were talking about the registration fee, I assumed that it was in lieu of that.

So a Federally documented boat in Md waters pays a lower registration fee than a MD titled boat? D-U-M-B. Maybe I'm just catching on.

I was replying to a poster above that said States go after documented boats for Use Tax, whichis entirely a different matter, not a registration. Use tax is a way to collect sales tax if you buy your boat in another State and bring it home, for example.

When I bought my first boat in PA and kept it in MD, I didn't have to pay sales tax to MD since I had already paid it to PA (they just wanted proof). The boat was only 22 feet so if there was a use tax, it was probably minimal and I didn't notice (or remember). Second boat I bought in MD so they got the tax on that one.

Yes, most States just want to be sure you aren't dodging Sales Tax altogether and have reciprocal agreements with neighbors to offset what you paid there. Most States allow you to fill out a form to avoid paying sale tax, if you are leaving their State with the boat. In your case, or may not have needed to pay sales tax to PA. But, all is well that ends well for you. Good.

The 'blanket' in MD is that you have to pay any 'differential differences' between what you paid in sales taxes in your original state and that charged in MD ... THEN you are entitled to pay the MD. 'use' tax. Of course if you paid MORE than what MD extracts, there is no 'discount'.

Eg.: If your state has NO sales taxes, then when you bring your documented boat to MD you then pay the full MD sales tax, and then pay for the 'use tax' ... each and every two years 'after' the year that you pay the MD sales tax.

PA sales tax is more than MD so in my case I didn't owe anything.
