Used boat question

5 posts in this topic

When buying a used boat, do you pay tax and title transfer fees like a used car?

In MN you pay title transfer fee but not sales tax on the boat if you buy from a private party. You pay title transfer fee and sales tax on the trailer.

If you buy a used boat from a dealer in MN you pay sales tax on boat, motor and trailer.

so do they ask you how much you paid for the trailer then? If you paid like 3k for a package wouldn't the trailer be worth like 100 bucks?

Most of the trailers I've bought have been worth about 20 bucks. grin.gif

That is exaclty how it works, they ask you what you think the price of the trailer is and then they tax you on that amount.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
