Unlike the state of California
and Virginia (and many others I suspect) you do not have to pay property taxes
when you buy a boat (or a car for that matter).. In those two states, they tax you to death..
I didn't see anyone mention it, in Texas
you have to pay a registration
fee ($110.00) every 2 years.. Unlike the original poster, if you buy a boat already registered in Texas
, but with more than 90 days from when the current registration
expires, you do not have to pay this fee.. That is until you need to re-new your registration (and get the new stickers).. Fortunately, the stickers are good for 2 years.. flk k
