Just went to buy a tag for my Birkshire.....

In Alabama they go by the list price rather than the price paid to calculate the tag price. The tag and tax was 3500.00 this didn't include a two percent sales tax ($1800.00) which Lazydays sent to the state of Alabama. Total tax and tag $5300.00. Probably cost me a couple of thousand because they used the list price rather than the actual price paid. A little frustrated today!

List price !

Born and raised in Alabama, now I know why I left the "HEART OF DIXIE" for good old Florida. No state income tax here, my tag for my 8285WS was
less than $50.00.

Hey BamaCorner
You got over good. In Georgia it is .07 to the State. Then we have to pay a road tax plus tag. My total will be 8,190.00. Plus the tag. After the first year it will be around 1400.00 per year. It decreases as the valve drops.
Life is good.

Colorado is 3.9% sales tax, ownership tax 2.1% of 85% of MSRP, then decreases to 1.5%, 1.2%, 0.9%, 0.45% for 5 yrs, then $3/yr. Can't wait for yrs 10+ !!!! Oh, there are also some weight based fees, another couple hundred bucks per year.

Wow, beginning to feel pretty good about my cost....

of the tag and tax in Alabama. Daisy, when I was complaining to the sales person at lazydays he made a statement that we have all heard, "they are going to get you one way or another." He went on to say that tags are cheap in Florida but they make you pay a pretty hefty property tax on the MH. Oh well! Just need to think about how much fun my wife and I are going to have.

Strange, When I registered ours, they used the bill of sale price to assess the tag and taxes. I wonder if that changed in the last few years. I know they use the blue book value if you don't have a BOS or if the paid price is a lot less than the blue book.

I neglected local taxes in CO since I live outside city limits, but that could be another 3%, depending on your particular city. They always get the taxes from you one way or another. If I still lived in TX, there would have been about 3.5 to 4 times as much property tax, a little more sales tax, and no state income tax. At least we are allowed to pick where we live and thus the taxes we'll pay...

In NS, we pay 15% sales tax and to register the camper with the Registry of Motor Vehiches, we pay about $100 annually. We also pay 15% sales tax on all goods and services and about 30% income tax plus taxes on any property we own. And they say healthcare is free.
