In South Carolina we can claim our RV as a second home and that helps on PPT. Several restrictions on it but fair enough. It lowers the tax rate quite a bit. We didn't know we could do it but someone was nice enough to mention it to us. You may want to ask about it. We go each November to tax office and apply.

I guess most of us homeowners pay for parking in their own driveway indirectly by paying property taxes, but do you get a separate tax bill for this?
You read it correctly. Every car, truck, motorcycle, or trailer (all types) that you have registered in MA gets reported to your local town, and the town then charges an annual Excise Tax for it.

This also goes for boats, but in that case the bill comes from the town listed as the mooring location (which in my case is a different town).

The valuation of each is pretty low (particularly after year 2), but that's beside the point.

EDIT: We don't call it Taxachusetts for nothing!

illinois has some ridiculous taxes, but at least we dont have to pay yearly for the privilege of owning a vehicle. we pay it once up front at point of purchase. 50 bucks yearly for trailer registration, 101 a year for vehicles with random issued plates, up to 3/4 ton pickups. it starts going higher with 1 tons and beyond.

I have really come to hate December.

Ya'll need to move on down heear ta Alabamee

Homestead exemption makes property taxes a drop in the bucket here and once you turn 65 they disappear altogether (as does license fees, hunting & fishing licenses

Oh, and if you are retired Military, or Federal Civil Servant, Alabama does not tax your retirement pay either
