Sorry but not the case. You can only pay sales and use taxes one time on a boat or car. This has gone thru the Courts.

The problem comes in here.

Man "A" buys a boat in Connecticut and is a resident of New York. Buy playing games with the actual location of the boat he can aviod paying sales tax. If you come to Florida or any other state after avoiding taxes then expect to pay.

If your boat is from Maine which has a 5% tax and move the boat to Florida where it resides for more than 100 days then you owe the state 1%. It is fairly simple and straightforward.

this pdf file explains it simply.


Remember there are no Property taxes on boats in Florida so this is a one time hit.

If you're addressing my post, I didn't mention Florida... just said that MOST STATES WILL COME AFTER YOU FOR TAXES if you're in their waters long enough.

Many states, some counties, and some cities and towns have annual excise or use taxes. They like getting their money, and if you're in their waters long enough—they will try and collect it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well use tax = sales tax.

An annual tax by county or town is Property tax.

Registration fees are seperate. Florida allows a longtime i.e. over 100 days boat to just get a sticker instead of registration. This sticker shows that the tax and fees are paid and will prevent hassles to snowbird or other long time crusiers by the overpopulated law enforcement in Florida.

This thread was started by someone who appears to want to pay no tax and live on a broken down wreck. This type of behavior hurts us all. IMHO.

Re: Anchoring out... laws... regulations...?

IF you have paid sales tax on your vessel equal to more of florida's 5% then its not an issue.Go to tax collector's office and get the "USE" tax sticker. This is a issue for the Deleware Corporation tax dodgers or others from a low/no sales tax on boat states.IF not then you are limited to 90 per calender year i think.
