Trailer license fee, or property tax?

Hi, In California we pay a pretty high amount of money for a yearly license on our trailer. Some states, I hear, charge a very low trailer license fee. And, I guess, some states charge property tax on travel trailers. What states charge a property tax for travel trailers?

Tags only in GA. The costs arent too bad but more than I would have thought for a 30 year old TT. The state apparently is as proud of my AS as I am! Haha

In Minnesota we pay $15.00 for each of our trailers. It's the only thing I know of that the state doesn't over tax us on

Tennessee is about $13.25 per year for the tag or you can buy a semi plate at about $90.00 which is a permanent plate but not transferable to another trailer. A better deal if you plan on keeping the unit for a while.

IIRC, $39/year for a RV Trailer in IL. $59 for a utility trailer.

MD is $190/ three years. That is vanity tag too.

A client lives in DC, $575 for two years. They pay the tax and get no representation.

Now just to stir it up a tad... A previous poster said "It's the only thing I know of that the state doesn't over tax us on"
It is my personal opinion(as someone who has seen how other countries live) we get off very easy. Have you ever been to any of the Scandinavian countries? I would gladly pay the tax to have their quality of life!
(and now someone will tell me if I like it so much better how about I get out)

This will be the one and only time that things are cheaper in Canada. A lifetime trailer plate is $35, but no vanity or personalized plates are available here for trailers.
Property tax is only applied if it is permanently placed in a park and then only if it has a hard sided add a room attached. The living space must be wider than 8 ft to be subject to property tax.

That's one time $35, not yearly, also can be transfered to the next trailer for $10.

Our plates are based on value, plus a county wheel tax. Then there is a personal property tax also based on value. For both of these we claim "Its a fixer-uper" for a better rate. I dont complain because both fees together are around $60.00 per year.

Hi Frank I have some very dear friends that live in Denmark and another that lives in Sweden. I have had the great pleasure of spending a fair amount of time in their homes with them. I agree with you on their quality of life but I also think Dorothy said it best "There is no place like home" I love it here!!!

Houston, Texas

I have two trailers, a 1998 Wells Cargo single axle 12' utility trailer for which the license (only) fee is $57.50 annually and a 2002 ASCL 31' at $84.00 annually.

Additionally, Texas has no income tax.

NM sold us a permanent tag for the rig for about a hundred. My only problem is that the tag itself is starting to disintegrate in the NM sun.

$24.00 in Nebraska. But if you have a new one there is personal property tax for the first 10 years. And if you have a motor home of any age there is a "special fuel tax". If I had a MH instead of a trailer it would have been another $75.00. Not sure if there is a difference between diesel or gas powered rigs.

I just registered our 30' AS here in NJ. It was $23 for one year. Not bad considering all the other ways they hit us. Of course there was also sales tax when we initially registered / titled it here but that's one time only.
