Hello all -
I am purchasing
a boat in FL that I will be taking trips to the Keys and the Bahamas
. I live in Portland
, OR (have for four years) but I stay in the FL keys as well and vote in the Keys as we are usually here when that time comes around.
My question is one that has been asked a few times. My legit address is Portland
- can I register the vessel in OR even though it will be awhile before the boat makes it to Portland? The boat will be around $500k. In Portland we don't have to pay any sales tax (was pretty nice when I bought a car there a few years back) and in FL it looks like they pay up to $18k for tax on a boat.
Thank you for your responses!
