anyone know a notary?

18 posts in this topic

long story short:

i inherited a boat from my aunt. she gave it to me. seeing as i did not pay for the boat we need to sign a sales tax exempt form. we both signed the form. however, upon signing i realized we need the signature of a notary as well. i don't really want to cough up a lot of dough just for a notary's signature. any help/suggestions, etc. would help out a ton.

thanks

That's right, go to your bank and they'll have a notary, there.

My wife is a notary, she works for Ameriprise Financial, other investiment companies have them too.

A car dealer have a notary, so your County Court House.

Be sure to bring along your driver's license as ID confirmation

Very few notary's charge anything and those that do can only charge a small fee. I let mine expire 3 years ago so I am not up on this subject completely.

I know one of the perks of my bank accounts is free notary service.

No sales tax on private party tranactions for boats in MN even if you paid for it. Save your self the trouble of the exemption form and just register it.

Your local government will also have a notary.

It costs about $140 for someone to register with the state and county and get the stamp, which is good for several years. State statues say what the charges, generally $1 per document with an additional fee per page.

thanks for all the help guys. seriously, i appreciate it a lot.

the situation is a little complicated. i am inherting this boat from my aunt. it used to be my uncle's boat until he passed away a few years ago. anyways, i went to the ridgedale government center and they said that i needed an actual death certificate. apparently the xeroxed copy i have isn't enough?!? secondly, the employee said that i need to fill out the "sales tax affidavit (declaration) for gift of a vehicle." i'm not sure if they gave me this form for the boat or the trailer. maybe both???

anyways, it's been a pain in the neck just trying to register this darn thing.

When my father died 15 years ago, no one would accept a photo copy of a death certificate. They all had to have the raised seal on them wheather it was for a government agency, insurance co., bank or business.

It seems that the first problem is that the boat is not in your aunt's name. The registration likely is in your deceased uncle's name. If so, then you will need to show that she has a legal right to the boat, and probably have to transfer it to her before she can make a gift of it to you. You may need to produce the will showing that all personal property went to your aunt upon your uncle's death, and show a certified copy of the death certificate to prove the death and the transfer to your aunt.

The second problem, if I read your original post correctly is that both you and your aunt signed the affidavit NOT in the presence of a notary. No notary I know will notarize a document unless the parties are physically in front of the notary while the document is being signed. You need to first locate the notary, and then take your aunt to the notary to sign and have the document notarized.

Good luck!

the boat is in her name. so that's one problem out of the way. my only problem now is this sales tax affadavit and whether or not they will accept a xeroxed copy of my uncle's death certificate.

Open water: If the boat is already in your aunt's name, why the need for the death certificate, whether xeroxed or original? Is it actually in both your aunt's name and your uncle's name? This would explain the employee requesting the death certificate.

Thanks

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!
