As an example , I once bought a boat in the Keys , $100,000 for boat included was 42 sets of dive gear
, 90 scuba tanks
, bunches of flippers and masks and a $24,000 compressor
. We valued the boat at fifty thousand and the gear
at fifty thousand . No sales tax on non-titled personal property . At what point did I become a crook ?
Did you ever notice that lots of commercial fish
boats might price
the frames and rigs and licenses separate from the boat . I wonder why .
When I was buying
wrecker trucks I would buy the truck and pay the sales tax and then buy the wrecker body in a different state marked out of state delivery
. All legal
and an acceptable procedure .
