Default New Boat Registration Procedure UGGHHHH

I just found out after purchasing a used boat that effective April 1st 2016 you MUST pay taxes on the boat and trailer. I sent my papers to register with the Wildlife and Fisheries and they sent it back with a form that needs to be filled out by the Department of Revenue. You must pay taxes at two places; the Department of Revenue in Baton Rouge and also Parish taxes are to be paid at your local school board office. Once you have this form filled out by both places showing you paid the taxes, then you can send to the LA Dept of Wildlife and Fisheries to register it. You must send to the Dept of Revenue and they will let you know how much tax to pay. I emailed mine over a week ago and still have no answer as to the amount of taxes I must pay, and trying to get them on the phone is a joke. There needs to be an easier way!. You can go to the Dept of Revenue in Baton Rouge to pay the state taxes, but I do not have time to take a day off to do this. I am a Notary Public and just found out about this. Before April 1st you only had to pay taxes on the trailer. So I can't register my boat until I pay the taxes, but can't pay the taxes until the Dept of Rev gets back to me. This is so screwed up.

I remember the trailer only days.

Most folks made out 2 invoices :

1) trailer by itself

2) boat by itself

Trailers were cheap in them days

I just did this in March with a used out of state boat from Ark I brought into LA.

Email LA Dep of Rev at Boat Registrations Boat.Registrations@la.gov

ask them for an update, give them your full name, address, etc.

I didn't owe any taxes since it was a "casual purchase" or such, but now it appears that has changed. They sent me the stamped approved form back, then I brought that to school board tax office in person, then sent all needed forms to LDWF. Made sure I kept full copies and good records of everything and anything I mailed to anybody.

Just take it one step at a time...

Myself and a buddy are fixing to do a even swap. Who will determine the taxes we should pay on each boat?

Default Clarification of Taxes

I checked with the LA Dept of Wildlife and Fisheries and they stated that no taxes are due if the boat is over 10 yrs old and the value is under $2500.00. My boat does not qualify because I purchased the boat for $6000, and even though it is over 10 yrs old I still have to pay approx. $500 in taxes.

So I’ll ask the same question I did back when our socialist governor was holding Tops hostage…

Why are we not recalling his lying, communist, ***?
