Re: How much more blood can they suck?

didn't the feds try this years ago and destroy a bunch of jobs in the process, which of course led to lower revenues?

LOL, Donna! Now I've got two of them for ya, one from FL and one from Aruba ... and am thinking I need to get to the post office to send them to you and quite storing them, because they're cluttering up our nav station.

Not sure what that has to do with MD taxation, except, wondering how many people have the flexibility to leave the state to save $$, and what other locations offer acceptable tradeoffs.

Re: How much more blood can they suck?

I was referring to government in general. The US Congress or the various state legislatures, all can find creative ways to tax, none can find creative ways to save.

WIth that in mind.......takes me back to the Regan era....When a luxury tax was added to many items by him and the federal congress. Proceeded to pretty much ruin the boat building industry among other things within the USA at the time. We have probably what, 1/4 of the boat builders that we have now?!?! I am sure the tax had something to do with it, along with a recession that occurred about then....... These types of taxes are not always the best option.

Re: How much more blood can they suck?

Well that does it. I have have decided to move my boat (rarely kept in Maryland as I 'travel') to a state that has no genetically defected memory politicians. Just remember that the famous Ted Kennedy sponsored late 80s, early 90s, "federal Luxury Tax" on boats and private aircraft almost totally destroyed the domestic boat and aircraft building industry and resulted in the permanent 'layoff' of over 40,000+ employees in those industries and which never recovered when this 'tax the rich' insanity was eventually 'lifted'.
I wouldnt 'mind' if increased draconian taxes benefited others than primarily non-productive bureaucratic parasites and their 'entitled' minions; but, these taxes only go down the rat-hole to enhance such expanding parasitism.

A foreign registry for my boat in the Marshall Islands, etc. is starting to look real good. "F" the Socialist Peoples Republic of Maryland .... they're going have to find a different 'prey species' than me, this time around. Im tired of being a targeted "tax patsy".
Up yours Maryland, 'Im outta here' if this LEGAL THEFT / governmental extortion passes.

I suspect Delaware marina space may soon be at a premium.

Hmmm, perhaps you might want to wait and see if the bill actually passes, no? (grin)

Ahh, yes - I remember that one well, my wallet took a pretty good hit back in those days...

However, just for the sake of historical accuracy, let the record show that it was President George H.W. "Read My Lips" Bush who actually signed that one into law...

And, in a little-known footnote, as a lame duck actually VETOED H.R 11 - which would have repealed the Luxury Tax on yachts - a couple of days after his defeat in November of '92...

It was Bubba who made the repeal one of the priorities of the First 100 Days of his administration...

Go figure, huh? (grin)

Go ahead move away...more room on the Bay for me...I think they should only impose the tax on people who keep their boat in Maryland, but do not have residence there.

Re: How much more blood can they suck?

I seem to recall that, back in the day, a lot of the big boats that were raced internationally - Kialoa III for one - were home ported in Delaware to avoid taxes like this one.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
