Robbed for Tabs on Boat
« on: February 25, 2020, 12:09:10 PM »
Holy hell this is a joke. $123 for just my boat alone. That is more than it cost for my $40K truck per year, which BTW I drive every day. How the crap can they get away with charging this much for freaking boat tabs? It feels like they just robbed me.

Oh yeah, also, they only go from June to June so I had to pay a prorated rate for the remainder of this year and then the $123 for the next year. I was just blown away.

I wonder if you could beat the man by just getting trip permits? Were they at least offering a complementary reach around.

I would say you should start a citizen's initiative, but we all know that appears to be a giant waste of time.

Save your gas receipts and file for non road use tax refund... should make enough back to pay for licensing fee's.

From the boat or just gas overall?

Just do this during tax time then? Never heard of this before? Love the idea though.
