I'm not %100 sure, but I think if the boat was purchased in Florida
then you owe some tax to Florida state.
As to Canadian tax. Register the boat in Canada
(pretty sure you have to). You won't pay Canadian tax until the boat is brought into Canadian waters. If you never bring the boat to Canadian water
, then you never pay tax. I can personally confirm this!
However, you will need to pay registration fees
and possibly a tonnage survey
. The tonnage survey
depends on the size of boat and the registration
docs are very clear if you need it.
I would start the registration ASAP as Transport Canada
is about 8 weeks behind on registrations.
