I do not disagree with you hellosailor. Like I said, that was something she accomplished. No idea what it took, but like I said, I would rather spend my time on other things. For everything there is a price, and it is usually equal. Sure you can work for cash, keep your money out of the bank, never title the boat you build, but, you will have no credit (Sometimes a very useful tool), you will have no security whrn you are too old to work, and there will be times where you find yourself in the soup kitchens. Not th worst thing in the world, but I want better. In my outlaw days, the rule was never give them a reason to look any closer.

Tax is what we pay for all of the services are government offers. You'll have to pay the piper somewhere down the road. May as well do your part.

That's my approach at least. To each his own - but I hope I'm not the only who pays taxes correctly.

Not that hard at all -- the context was whether South Carolina has a particularly low tax, compared with other states. It may look like it does, if you don't know about the personal property tax. No matter how much money you have, there are other states with lower long-term tax cost for owning a boat.
