Montana Vehicle Licensing Services | Montana RV LLC Service
$219 Montana RV LLC Service
Montana is a great place to license your motorhome, RV, travel trailer, trucks, automobiles, trailers, aircrafts, boats, or any type of vehicle. Montana has no sales tax. You can form a Domestic Montana LLC with our address, and hold your vehicles and assets in the Montana LLC. We are located in the Flathead County. Flathead County is the cheapest county in Montana to license your vehicles in. The other 2 most popular locations have a county excise tax. You have to have an address in Flathead County to license your vehicles, motorhomes, or RV's in it. If you sign up with another service that is in another county, you might be faced with higher annual fees to keep your license up.
A big thing to consider is the legitimacy of what you are doing. The whole theory is that you are forming a Montana business. (A Montana LLC) The Montana business (LLC) owns assets such as a motorhome or vehicle. Because Montana does not have business personal property tax on assets that are licensed, you pay no sales tax, just a licensing fee.
There are a lot of websites out there specializing in Montana LLCs for holding companies, but what we've found is that most of those are giving you a residential address. You can go to
and type in the address they are giving you to see an actual picture of what the address looks like. All you have to do is click on the “Street view” option. Google has gone through our entire country and driven the streets taking photographs of basically everything. While this is annoyingly invasive of our privacy, it offers a valuable tool to really see who you are dealing with very quickly. So, if you are forming a legitimate Montana LLC, don't you think your address should be a commercial address?
Those websites are more than likely side businesses where people give you their home address as yours. Now if you think about it… You're forming a Montana LLC (Business) and you're using a residential address? That doesn't make a lot of sense does it. Because we are a Montana business services business first, these Montana LLC holding companies are just an extra part of what we do. All we do is form Montana LLCs and Corporations. Our entire business is acting as registered agent. We don't go work somewhere and have a side-business Montana LLC website for Montana RV LLCs.
Let's explore the Montana LLC for RVs a little farther. Montana has business personal property tax and income tax. So if we buy a computer for 1000 from dell, we pay 1.9% of the value of that every year on our business personal property tax return. We also pay about a 6.9% net income tax on our profits of our business to the State of Montana. Then we have our federal income taxes.
The real point of what you are thinking about doing is simplicity right? So if you ONLY hold assets in the Montana LLC that are titled, you should not have a business personal property tax return with the State of Montana. Also… you won't have a net income tax to Montana or the IRS for the company. Now you could go and file zero returns every year for these companies, but that would be a pain. If there's no activity, the worst case scenario is way down the road, you have to file some zero returns. You're not getting a tax ID number with the IRS for a Montana RV LLC holding company. You're only forming a legitimate Montana business (A Montana LLC) to license a vehicle in. We think one of the important things about doing this with us as your Montana registered agent is that your address will be a commercial address, not a residential home.
Is it legal in your home state? Now that's a great question. The best thing for you to do is to call your local county DMV and ask them how long the vehicle can sit inside your county without leaving it before they require you to register it there. Most counties have a 6 month rule. But let's be honest here. If you're even looking at this, you're probably getting screwed over by your local county with insanely high fees and personal property tax. You're probably willing to even store the RV or vehicle outside the county to get away from paying all those high fees. The Montana RV LLC is absolutely perfect for full timers that don't actually live anywhere. By holding the RV in an LLC, you are really solving the problem of where to license an RV.
We personally inspect your information and form your Montana RV LLC correctly, the first time. We don't have hidden fees that pop up after you spend 15 minutes filling out a form. Its $100 plus $70 state fee for an LLC. That's it.
There are some Montana websites looking to get rich off high one-time fees. We have a different approach; do it right, do it well, do it for a fair price, and your customers will keep coming back and refer you to someone else. Honestly, we get about 1-2 referrals a day from people that met one of our clients at a RV campground. We also get a consistent flow of new clients that already have a Montana RV LLC and switch to us for our cheaper registered agent service to maintain the LLC.
So how do you get started?
Fill out the sign up form, pay, we will call or email you if we have any questions, once we are both ready, we form and file your LLC immediately, we notify you once we receive confirmation from Montana State, we then upload the Montana LLC paperwork in your online account, where it will always be, email and send you the initial paperwork from the state once we receive it back. You mail us the title documents we request from you, you pay our flat rate vehicle registration pricing, we get the vehicles plated and courier you back the plates and registration paperwork. There is no lag time from when we receive the title paperwork from you. The actual title comes back in about a month or so from the State DMV, not the county DMV. We forward that to you once we receive it. Then you just pay the DMV direct every year after that for the annual registration. If it's a permanent plate, you don't have to do anything.
