In Sask if they taxes are paid when buying it (GST and PST, gov't and provincial) then you dont pay anything extra. Now you buy an out of province car, you pay the PST cause its already had the GST paid. If you buy an out of country vehicle you pay both taxes + air tax + tire tax + emissions tax (based on make/model/engine) + broker fees..

One state/province at a time!

6% sales tax on the purchase price.
tag is $10 for physical plate, paid just once (or you can transfer one if already have one)
Registration is $12/year.
If you have brakes or the trailer is over some weight then you need annual safety inspection, $15.95 most places.

No other costs or taxes or fees. Prices are the same whether it's a homemade trailer or a $100,000 10 ton trailer.

In MI we pay a 6% sales. A MH is based on value at time of sale and never goes down.
Mine will be 850 per year for ever.
A TT is a one time plate good as long as you own the TT.

Tennessee is 9.25% - 9.75% (depending on your County) of the actual "out the door" sales price (less trade). That is assessed on the the first $5,000 then drops a few points on the balance. Since I traded, I only had to pay on the difference between the two units (saved me the taxes on the $15,000 allowed on the trade). Then you can buy regular tags at $24 per year, or get the permanent tag for about $90 and it never expires.

I opted for the permanent tag this go around. If I keep the unit more than 4 years I am saving money.

Bamacorner Something doesn't sound right. If you look at the Alabama DOR website

ADOR - State Tax Rates

the state taxes on a vehicle purchase is 2 percent. So the money you paid at Lazy Days should have been close. Yes you would still owe the tag fee and the advelorium taxes but they are not 3000.00. Around here a couple of years ago the were charging by the MGW of a vehicle and then chrage the commercial rate. Much higher more of what your talking about. It might be worth checking into.

Can we delete this thread please, I'm afraid there may be an Ohio politician lurking on here.
We pay a tax to title the RV based on the county rate in which you live that ranges approx. 5.5 to 7.5%, this is a one time (first time fee) based on the actual cost, then we pay the state 24.50 each year for plates which includes a 5.00 road tax.

You're right! The cost for a TT plate in Michigan is a good deal. The charge for my MiniLite was $200. for a lifetime plate.

Guess what Folks? No matter where you live, they're gonna get you! People kind of forget that if you want goods like roads or services like police and health care, then someone has to pay for it. Sadly we have to pay and pay and pay. Here in NY we pay a very high (8.75%) sales tax but low registration fees. Oh but wait, we have fuel taxes that are among the highest in the US. You're going to pay someone no matter what.

There's an expression, "Don't tax you, Don't tax me, Tax that fellow behind that tree."
