Re: Canadian resident registering boat in US. Duty question
What proof does the Canadian government have that you will ONLY sail this boat in Alaska?
See, that's the point. You live in Canada. You are bringing the boat into Canadian waters. Not paying the tax, sunshine, is tax evasion. You may not like the term but that is what it is. Oh, I know, I know, you don't plan to KEEP the boat here, you know, even though you LIVE here. You';re just going through to Alaska yeah, that's it.
How often do you think Customs hears THAT story?
You got the answer direct from the source, you didn't like the answer, you came here looking for advice on how to evade the tax due, and now you're gonna fire off a hissy letter to your MLA?
Not a smart move if you like to sail on the downlow and sometimes enter canadian ports.
Why did you buy the boat you bought, where you bought it?
It was a good deal.
Why do you sail Alaska?
No tax. It's a good deal.
Now you're complaining about paying taxes that everybody else has to pay, because you think you have a better story?
If you're an American citizen, why not list your Alaska slip as your American address, thereby making it all legal?
duh right back at ya.
