Who registered their boat outside their home state?
For years I lived in NJ as my primary residence, but kept the boat in NY, where I have a vacation home. When I bought a new boat in 2006, the dealer was in NY and they were required to ask if I owned a residence in NY. since I did, they had to charge NY sales tax, to a difference of some $2500. I am now registered in NY. Fortunately neither state has an annual property tax like CT.
