buyig a new boat

7 posts in this topic

I was recently told that if a person from Minnesota was to buy a boat from a private party (not a dealer), then they don' have to pay tax on it. Is this true? I'm not sure I trust this person, as I had been told that on atv's, snowmobies, etc you had to pay tax and title fees. Can anybody help me, as I'm looking at a pretty expensive purchase. Thanks in advance.

If you buy a used boat you would pay tax on the value of the trailer only, not on the value of the boat, motors or accessories. The value on most used trailers is $100 to $1,000.

What PJ said. Only taxes and transfer the lifetime trailer license to you. You do have to pay to register the boat if it isn't already. But no taxes on the boat itself, just the trailer.

Enjoy it while it lasts .... with government tax revenues issues, It would not suprise me if we started to see private party used boat sales taxes (just like used cars when you xfer the title).

Didn't realize this when I bought my first used boat ... it was a pleasant suprise. More money left over for accessories and fishing stuff grin

When I went to register my boat & trailer, the lady behind the counter asked me what I thought my boat trailer was worth... $100 she said.

I looked at her like she just insulted me.

I said "No, its got to be worth at least $600."

She said "Thats fine but you'll pay tax on whatever amount you tell me. $100 Right?"

I just smiled and thought what kind of operation do we run around here. Just too funny.

Fasternu,

That is correct. When purchasing from a private party, there is no MN sales tax, just a $58 flat tax, regardless the value or year of the rig. Used is used. [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
