      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Sales Tax on boat purchase from private party in MN

Recommended Posts

Big-Al

I have searched this site and others and have come up with mixed information. Hopefully someone can come up with the correct info. Do I pay sales tax on the purchase price of a titled boat when I purchase from a private party in MN? I believe at one time it was on the trailer alone. Has this changed to include the boat purchase price?

i had to pay sales tax on entire package 2 years ago, maybe it depends on which DMV you go to & who takes care of you. go to your local DMV and do whatever they say to get all propper paperwork....no matter what you will be good to go

I bought mine from a private party 2 summers ago and only paid tax on the trailer also. I know there was talk about expanding the tax to private sales on boats, but not sure if that is the case yet. More than likely it's just around the corner with internet purchases I'm afraid.

Thanks for the responses. I guess that is a chunk of change that I don't have to worry about kicking out.

Yes, this is a huge benefit in our state. Pay tax on trailer only from private party and you tell the person what the trailer is worth.

When I won the pontoon at the Governor's fishing opener 3 years ago I had to pay sales tax on the boat at the value put on it by Crestliner. I was asked what the trailer was worth and fudged on it a bit.

FYI the rig was valued at $32,500 by Crestliner and by the time I was done I paid over $14,000 in income taxes, sales tax, registration and licensing. Heck of a deal. I was told that I was the only person in the history of the opener that took the offered rig. I had a great line of home equity credit, a truck to pull it, and a lake to put it on.
