Excise tax proposed -

The National Marine Manufacturers Association reported news from Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Louisiana that affects the marine industry.

The Massachusetts legislature will hold a hearing on a proposed marine excise tax. The NMMA, along with the Massachusetts Marine Trade Association, has submitted comments to the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Revenue opposing the bills, which would levy an additional tax on boats and boat equipment that are habitually docked or moored in state waters during the summer boating season.

For information, contact Nicole Vasilaros at (202) 737-9763 or [email protected].

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has proposed a rule requiring all people aboard boats less than 16 feet, or any canoe or kayak, to wear life jackets between Nov. 1 and April 30. Concerned boaters can submit comments by Aug. 10 by mail to the Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P.O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000 or online.

Crap like this comes and goes in MI and they soon figure out they are shooting themself in the foot since travel and boat bring in other revenues.

In Los Angeles County I get a 300.00 luxury tax per year on my 06 V-Ride because I reside here and my boat is stored next to my house.

If I lived in nearby Ventura County I would not be subject to this tax!

This is why lots of folks here register or try to in Arizona.

CA will tax any boat in the state. I forgot all about this and took delivery of my boat on December 30, 2010. If I would have waited until January 2 I would have saved over $600. :(

CA calls it a personal property tax.

Not true. It is a statewide tax.
