Well you can expect a demand letter from my Attorney shortly is all I am going to say about that

I'm thinking ONE MILLION dollars should cover it

You have 10 days to comply OR ELSE

Jump through all the hoops they give you and pretend to be nice. I know a guy who lost his caravan park business fighting the local government for years. He was probably mostly right but ended up broke. Hitlers legacy continues on in "honest" government.

Since I regularly motor our automobile up from SF to Vancouver island, how about we meet in Cottage Grove, OR?

I'll put the tax guy in the trunk...

Yes, Andrew, like California treating boats the same as real property. However, they did take us off the tax rolls after we registered the boat in another State, which is all one needs to show them. The poor clerk who spoke to the OP is NOT the one who passed the law. It was in effect in 1989, and maybe a little earlier. Hardly a secret.

Re: Anybody Fight CA over Hailing Port/Tax BS?

It is conceivable that some contributors to this thread like watching train wrecks. Especially if the wreck is distant enough not to put them at risk.

Re: Anybody Fight CA over Hailing Port/Tax BS?

Do voluntary train wrecks count double points?
