I've never heard of such a thing either. That said here in Minnesota we are one of the higher taxed states. I can't imagine having to pay property tax over and above the state tax on vehicles and rv's.

NO MORE VOTING ON THAT LEGISLATION, cause now its a budget issue!!!!

Michigan is now ranked about 5th in the worst state to live in catagory.
$600 a month Is crazy... what does that do to the value of an RV? Buy a cheap one and in no time it would total it. If I paid $600 on a payment for the RV I would be mad.

Some people here pay $500-1000 a month in property taxes. Not me. I want my monies to pay for the property not the taxes. My fathers 60K property is $1500 year in property taxes(Texas) and it is too high. Most properties don't appreciate that much a year. Sad.

Not sure it would have helped, but you did know you could have put the camper on at 6% as a 2nd residence versus the 10.5% of the fair market value.

Michigan is now ranked about 5th in the worst state to live in category. (Buck up, most voters on that don't know what 'quality of life' really is. I like Michigan....you have Traverse City, after all!!)

In IL, we don't have personal property taxes. We do however have sky-hi property (real) taxes. I pay a ton of taxes on my home.

We have spring, summer, and fall.
We have the great lakes,
we have a state park system that is fabulous
we mountains
we have nightlife
we don't have to board a helicopter to make it to an emergency room.

I live in a rural area and still have 100 or so restaurants that I can visit within a half hour,, probably 30 within 15 minutes.. Not many places in America can say the same. Some metropolitan areas are lucky to have 30 total.

Retirees are leaving in droves and I can't blame them.
The current administration increased the retirees taxes 1 billion dollars so he could give it to his campaign donors...That tomfoolery took 1 billion dollars out of the Michigan economy.

It is simple ECON 101. if a person has no discretionary money to spend, He will buy nothing but the necessities. Don't try and get a businessman to understand that simple fact though.

Over the last ten years or so Michigan has gone from one of the top ten wealthiest states to one of the 20 poorest.

this is what you get when you live in a dictatorship

I agree but they charge so little for income and hard property tax they need to make up the shortfall.

Move to Florida. No personal property tax on either the truck or the fifth wheel, relatively inexpensive real estate taxes, no state income tax 6 1/2 % state sales tax plus 1/2 % local for a total of 7% sales tax. Having lived in Taxachussetts and North Carolina recently I can tell you that this place is heaven from that standpoint. I think (not sure) that my truck tags are $30.00 per year and the same with the 5th wheel. If not it's not much more. Insurance is based on the community in which you live. More expensive for instance in Orlando and Tampa than it would be in Zephyrhills.

No personal property tax in Oregon....or sales tax either. State income tax is a bit high...9%, but a great place to live. That is why all the rich Californios are moving north.
