I'm sure the way NY state looks at it is if you can afford a horse, truck, and trailer then you must have way to much money.

The wealthy must be punished and there must be economic justice for all. Someone has to pay the cell phone bill for the "under privileged"...

I'm surprised we don't hear a huge sucking sound created by the void left by those evil wealthy people leaving the state.

So, how's the "pay your fair share" thing working out for you now?

MD requires a safety inspection upon vehicle purchase (i think you get a waiver for a new car) and an emissions inspection annually. You are supposed to change your license, registration and tags within 60 days of moving here.

And man, when I registered my trailer it was almost $400!

Really, DA? How old is your trailer? Mine is a 1994. The newer the vehicle, the more expensive to register it with the state.

Md tax is 6% on the purchase price..Inspection if not new. Not all counties have emissions. Used vehicles after 7 yrs you can basically pay a lesser tax. (Not listed under blue book for vehicles). A friend of mine bought a 1994 15ft LQ. And only paid for 6% on 3,000. Even though he paid a lot more for it..Yearly tag on my 16ft stock is 87.50 a yr. So if I had of registered the LQ in Md It would have cost me 1,508 just to put it on the road for one year.So 203.00 for no taxes,inspection, 12 yr tag with Maine. I know of a few county police that have their trailers with Maine.

I know that MD also has permanent tags for trailers, so why would you have to be registering it every year? I also don't recall paying that much to register and title my older horse trailer when I lived in southern MD. I bought it from Lux Trailer Sales, so the inspection had already been done.

As far as southern Maryland county police not following the law, I'm not surprised.

Here in VA we have yearly inspections on all our vehicles, but in the county in which I live there's no emissions testing. Northern VA is where you'll find most of the counties that require emissions testing.

The 1500 figure was the initial fee to get it registered.Then you pay a tag renewal fee every year. I bought mine from a private seller. In Md even if the taxes were originally paid on it from the first buyer. The next buyer pays taxes on it again...etc. When I do move to Va I will register all my vehicles there. 2 trailers and my truck. I just didn't want to give MD anymore tax money... Besides if the police do it why can't I?

I know how MD works, and VA really isn't any different. You'll still pay use taxes when you reregister your vehicles in VA. They'll base it on the age and book value.

To have my 1994 Adam horse trailer permanently registered and titled was $145. I'll never have to pay another registration fee, but I will get hit with personal property taxes every year.

MD and VA both get about the same amount of taxes when it comes to vehicles, it's just that VA does it over a period of years and MD dings you all at once.

As far as doing something wrong just because someone else does it, doesn't make it right.

Hah! SR I bought mine from Lux too! I had to pay the 6% to the DMV, and then whatever else for new paperwork.

I will look in to the whole permanent tag thing and see if MD offers it. Otherwise I don't know what it will cost me next year.

I know this, but I have never had any issues with police in other states. When and if I do. I will then fix it. The LQ hasn't been any where in 2 yrs so I don't worry about it..When it does get moved it will be to VA and then tagged their.

Just checked the MD DMV website. I don't see where they offer permanent plates, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

Trailer registration fees in MD are also based on weight. Since my old trailer and current trailer are less than 3,000 pounds empty, they'd be registered at the lowest price per year.

So yes, if you have a monstrously big and heavy trailer, you're going to pay more per year than those of us with smaller ones.

Everybody has to decide on their own which laws they can scoff at and still sleep at night. I tend to be a goody two-shoes when it comes to following the law, because I don't want to be fined heavily or go to jail. I have a fear of being confined without the freedom to come and go as I please.
