The Personal Property tax gets paid to the Town. Just like on RVs or the motor vehicle tax. You register at DMV, they send the information to your home town and you receive a tax bill from the town...

Re: Seasick medication

In that case prescribe somebody a patch with orders to cut it in half and watch how fast after the Pharmacist receives it you get a call that they will not dispense it.
