I've read with considerable interest several of the threads that deal with sales tax and tax avoidance (as opposed to tax evasion which is illegal). So, let me pose this question:
If one (I) were to purchase
a vessel in Florida
but follow the procedure to remove it within the timeframe allowed so as to avoid paying Florida's sales tax, and documented and registered the vessel in Delaware which does not have a sales tax, maintaining it there for at least six months -- would I be able to then move the vessel back to Florida
and re-register and document the vessel there without paying the aforementioned sales tax?
From what I've read, as long as I don't move the vessel out-of-country (which would toll the six month requirement), I wouldn't have to pay the tax.
