I don't understand US laws really well but when we bought our trailer from Vermont we got the impression that it was law to register it in our name in the State we lived in - CT but only a one time registration and then the payment with our property tax the same as our other vehicles

You title and pay sales/use taxes on the vehicle once when you first register it, and then pay personal property tax on it every year it's registered in your name, jaydee.

Some registrations are permanent, but others expire. My truck registration expires at the end of July next year, while my trailer registration never expires because I paid up front for a permanent tag.

Than you You are such a useful source of info. I still get so confused with the new ways of doing things here and my husband got pulled this year in our Jeep because I hadn't understood that we had to do something legal - of course he's a man and never concerns himself with these things so my fault!!!

You're very welcome.

Did he maybe not get it inspected? Some states require a yearly inspection on vehicles. I don't know if CT is one of them, although I do know MD only requires inspection once, when you buy the vehicle.

VA requires yearly inspections, which I think is a good idea. The place I take my truck to be inspected will pass it, but the mechanic tells me what I'm going to need to replace in the next 6 months. I like that.

If NY didn't charge me $75 in July to register the trailer, and now they want another $75 before 12/31/12 I woudln't be looking into changing where my trailer is registered.

NY does a yearly registration cost, so for a 2 horse bumper pull trailer I will get socked for $75 from now untill they change it to a higher rate. Those of you with LQ or even regular gooseneck trailers would get hit for more than that EVERY year!

Haha, I only cheat them because they cheat me

Health insurance in PA was $66/month, SAME policy in NY was over $600! Needless to say I waited untill I got married to make the official change of residency

It's funny: some things like the horse trails are free to use, but other things like....oh LIVING are expensive

I have no clue - I think it was a registration thing - I just looked through the CT DMV stuff - might as well be in chinese for me.
Hopefully we will get some sort of reminders or we'll be paying a lot of fines
Of course the UK was simpler - one small country = one set of rules wherever you live and as you grow up with it you understand it!!!!

Only problem is that many insurance companies will want the trailer covered and tagged in the state you actually live in I would imagine.

We own property in both AL and in MO. The insurance companies would not let us keep the insurance agents in AL since our main residence is here.

While MAine may issue you a registration, that don't make it legal. Its called TAX evasion, and doing it on purpose is a felony in many places. Get pulled over with your home state truck tags, and home state trailer tags,and I am sure my police is going to have a little chat with you. Yeh noone likes taxes, but if you are that anti NY probably ought to move.
