OK this seems to be a legal
problem. I cannot nor do I give legal
advice. But it is my understanding that you are required to pay taxes. And some taxes should be paid. OK but what happens if you don't? Again it is my understanding a lien may be filed against your boat, for nonpayment. So? The lien is filed in the state/county where you live and maybe where the boat is. When you get ready to sell you could go next door to another county/state and sell you boat. No lien there.
You may or may not run into an authority who will give you a piece of paper saying you must go to court or bla, bla, bla.
OK, if you ignore these pieces of paper long enough will an authority come and chain your boat to the dock
? (The marina will for non payment of rent.) But you have moved. Will they seize your boat, or your home such as it is, without legal authority? The IRS may, but do they have the authority or do they just seize your boat/home, without court action and you have to prove they can't? Do they even know where your boat is unless you tell them?
In my humble opinion it sort of depends on your situation. If you have a permanent/regular job, a Real Estate Home, a wife and kids
and a fear of authorities you will probably sleep better if you just pay what ever the rules are and mutter in your beer
Or if you live mostly on the hook, are a bit of an outlaw, and can move from WA to Oregon
, Klifornia, Alaska
, BC or what the hell too Las Vegas go for it. They all have water
in which to float your boat. They also have places you have never been and people you have never met.
I don't think those pieces of paper will follow you. If so it will take a while since you don't leave forwarding addresses, your ID is your passport and since you don't have a car why change your drivers license
I am not suggesting anything at all here, but just think about it. Pay the ones that support the boating
industry and let the General Fund take care of himself. A lot of our taxes go to this General Fund guy. Who the hell is this General Fund guy anyway?
So there is my opinion, have a Merry Christmas
, I have to get back to packing up for a move down South. It seems people may be looking for me. 1Sunseeker
