Maine: 5% sales tax up front, local excise tax yearly and a plate fee from DMV annually. If you park it at a seasonal site and don't pay the excise/plate fee then it's taxed at property value like a house wherever it's parked. Yea Maine covers all their bases - worst state I've seen for overall tax burden and return on those taxes...

In Montana, we bought a one time only permanent plate for our travel trailer. Nothing more to do than use it!

Although in SC we have all kinds of taxes, they are probably much lower than the northeastern us or west coast. House taxes are $350 on 1700 sq ft house (35 years old) on one half acre in nice suburb of Columbia. Have homestead exemtion on being over 65. Trailer personal prop tax was $261 on the 26BH which I owned at tax time and a little over $500 on the 2012 truck. The trailer was based on a rate as a 2nd home or would would be almost twice as much. I expect this tax to more than double next year on the White Hawk. Effective rate of state income tax is about 2% because we have 30k retirement deduction and no state tax on SS income. Federal income tax is what eats us up. Good place to live!

I envy your house property taxes. I'll pay over $4000 this year on my 2700 sq ft house on a 1/4 acre in White Rock BC.

I too live in SC. The taxes on my 2012 32TSBH (due this month)are only $210. I live in the Greenville area, but since my TT is stored in Horry County, I decided to pay their property taxes, rather than Greenville's. Think I made the right choice there. The property taxes on my home are around $900 on a 2800 sq ft home.

Arizona has sales tax (Phoenix is 8.3%), and excise tax (on value) annually for license tab.

In Va there is the initial 3% sales tax then the DREADED yearly Personal property tax which varies by county. Here it is about 3.70 per hundred. So on a 20,000 RV the tax would be around 740.00 until it depreciates. But the Real estate taxes are low here compared to many other states, so I suppose it balances out. Like another poster said, the man is gonna get you one way or the other.

In VA we also pay PPT on each and every car, truck, boat, and even homemade utility trailers, every year. And my business pays a yearly fee to the county based on the value of tools and equipment owned by the business. But as Crabman said, it balances out, and we still think it's the best place to live, all things considered.
