In California, boats are taxed annually at the same rate as real estate. Tax is based on "value" times 1% to 1.5%, depending upon location. If berthed at a municipal marina, the tax also applies to the value of the berth.

Re: Southern Ca VS North Carolina

Some tax issues may be covered here:
State Boating Information Home - Government Affairs - BoatUS
at least where I am there is a "Use tax" and a sales tax which are "mutually exclusive." in my area, Ventura County, the rate is 7.75%. As far as property tax, I have avoided that by getting a good, OLD, low value, boat.

Re: Southern Ca VS North Carolina

I'm holed up in Beaufort right now waiting for some pesky lows to head out. Rainy and windy, but thankfully in the 50's.

Also, I'm surprised that no one on this thread (old as it is) has mentioned that the state bird of North Carolina is the mosquito.

Yup, that was in my post. You must have missed it. Since we've had a relatively mild Winter this year, I expect the mosquito / no-see-um population will be bigger than ever come Spring.

They are just going to carry use off to eat us later. 70s and even hit 80 in Jan. and coastal SC. Beats the hell out of the north.

I took nearly a year but I finally got an answer. The letter for my use tax clearance simply said "we have closed the inquiry". I called their office and asked for more info, they said the letter indicated I would not owe use tax. I said that the letter merely said my clearance request was closed. The clerk said that is how they do it and the letter is proof I don't have to pay use tax if I move my boat to CA. I must have sent 30 pages of receipts and it takes nearly a year to get a non answer!

The letter came over a month ago and the web site still shows my clearance request is "submitted". This whole ordeal was because I did not get a "warm and fuzzy" feeling from one rep and another rep said I should apply to get the clearance in writing. What a mess.
