{Stus-List} Buying a boat out of state and bringing to Maryland

The answer is "it depends".  PA came after me for the difference between the
MD 5% and the PA 6% until I proved that the vessel was never in PA (all I
had to show was receipts for the slip and winter storage).  They (PA) were
actually nice about it.


The real question is why do you need to title in Ill.  If you are going to
take it directly out of state (to MD), you should be able to title in MD and
pay the 5%.  Depending on how you are going to transport the boat might make
a difference.  If you are taking it on a trailer yourself, or are you having
it transported?  If you are having it transported, have them transport it to
MD before you "tale ownership".  If you are sailing it (and it is a
federally documented vessel), Ill shouldn't be able to charge you as long as
you don't stay in their waters for an extended period of time.


My 0.02 cents.

Hello Everyone,


Anyone have any personal experiences in the US (Not Canada)  with purchasing
an out of state boat from a broker and bringing it another state,
specifically Maryland?


The broker in Illinois indicates he may need to charge me sales tax if the
title is transferred there.  The sales tax rate is 6.5%.  In Maryland the
excise tax is 5%.  I would be fine paying the 6.5% as long as Maryland
viewed the sales tax as a "Reciprocal Credit for Tax Paid to Another State",
on their NRB-240 form.


It looks like most "reasonable" states will give a credit, all they are
concerned about is the tax "dodge" which is not the case here.  I want to
pay my fair share.


Any insight would be great with anyone who had similar experience....


Thanks so much,


-Brad, Mary, Monica, and Jarod
