So, I've owned multiple boats in the last 10 years. Today, for the first time ever, we received a property tax bill on the boat. Are you freaking kidding me?? Taxes for everything!!!!!!!! I guess I just got lucky before???

UGHHHHHH

    You were flying under the radar . Ever since they changed trailer tags to permanent which are only good for 7 years (go figure ) they charged me the personal property tax . I was also paying tax on my machinery . So glad to have made the move from the golden state .

    Politicians specialize in that here brother.

    Tax authority problems.... never end in your favor. So I guess its "Pay to Play"....right? What choice do you have? But know...We share your sorrow brother... and will be paying begrudgingly as well. Good luck. Be safe.

    Well, they valued my Parker @ 25K and the tax is $300. Not cool. Look, I love California for many reasons and I'm not a conservative at all (not a problem if you are), but taxes are just insane! Then again, not sure how it is in other states.
    Well who have you been voting for ? I ask because one particular party seems to be very fond of sticking it to anybody they can.It isn't the conservative side.

    I don’t want turn this into a political discussion but the other party has many other priorities I disagree with. While the one who likes to tax has others that piss me off as well. So, I’m more of an independent I guess.

    My biggest priority is to NOT be taxed out of this state.

    which one
    $300 doesn't even cover a tank of fuel for the truck and the boat anymore so if that pisses you off hold on its only gonna get worse. All this "free" money that everyone is getting isn't free and its all gonna hit us right in the face like a bag of dicks as they will go after Luxuries first to recoup the money.

    Now that I'm in Oregon the tags on my boat are 120 .00 every other year , in Cali it was 120.00 every year (property tax ). In Cali I was paying over 600.00 in tags for my 2 trucks . Now I pay 120.00 every other year for each one and no fuking smog certificate either . :shakin:

    I can attest that all states have issues. Being in CA for the last 10 years it has gotten worse each year. The tax and spend mentality is out of control This year the state is sitting on a budget surplus. Way are taxes still raising? if the navy had a base in AZ i would be gone

    There is no ocean in AZ :-) Although, the Sea of Cortez is closer!

    They find you when you store a boat in a boat storage yard ...They have to file the info with the county and shortly, your tax bill arrives...appeal the value each year to cut it down some.. do the .same on your residential property taxes...
