Montana Boat Registration
How to Buy a Boat and Pay No Sales Tax by Licensing it in Montana
Purchase a boat in a Montana LLC to avoid paying sales tax and license it with the Montana DMV department of motor vehicles.
Montana boats have permanent registrations under section 61-3-321(10)(a)(i) of the Montana code annotated.
Montana boat fees are as follows:
**We offer a boat registration service for $550 and this includes the Flathead County DMV fees. We will get your boat plated and registered in 1-3 days and overnight the plates to you.
That means you can purchase a $500,000 yacht and be looking at $839 nuts to bolts to have us set up your Montana LLC in 1 day and get your boat plated, titled, and registered with the Flathead DMV. You will probably still have to register it in your home State, but the sales tax savings will be huge! 7% sales tax on $500,000 is $35,000. Anytime we save a client over $50,000 in sales tax, we require a boat ride :) Just kidding.
