Feel free to PM me if it's a gray area. Getting close to buying a boat and would rather not give the democraps another pound of flesh in taxes. Anybody have any success?

Decades ago I bought a boat in New Jersey because the model was not available locally. I saved a few percentage points in sales taxes but that was not my motivation.

I don't remember which jurisdiction (coast guard, town, county), but boat police stopped me and told me to register it in New York if it was going to stay in New York. I registered it in NY the following year.

I did not realize you do not pay taxes in red states.
Red states that are FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE do not tax their peasants to death. Unlike New York

BS. Most red states would rather tax their constituents in ways they don't call taxes, so they can say they're not taxing their peasants to death, yet still be doing just that. DMV fees that we'd consider onerous (that often includes boat registrations) are one such example.

Your boat is exempt from New York State registration if it is

  • a lifeboat
  • registered in another state and not kept in New York for more than 90 consecutive days
  • a commercial boat with either U.S. or foreign documentation
  • a boat racing in competition
