Effectively finished in Ensenada Dec 9.
We will stay there as we appeal the California
State Board of Equalization's rejection of my Use Tax exemption application. I am re-applying with professional help. They want a paper trail of everywhere the boat and I have been, proof of use, insurance
, "taking possession", etc. You are guilty till proven innocent. They are sending me threatening tax bills for a boat that has never been to California
, which I also have to prove. Sheesh!
Don't enter California till you have this cleared. They found me through my USCG Documentation
application. Which was a good thing as it alerted me to the problem and process sooner.
