While the state rate may be lower, the county adds all kinds of stuff to documented boats :mad:. Below are the rates for Russell County:

2011 Documented Boat Rate:
State 1.5
County 9.2
School 48.6
Health 4.5
Library 7.7
Hospital 9.2
Extension 3.4
Ambulance 9.2
Soil Cons. 0.0

Anyone know how they use those numbers to calculate the tax?

I know it is a little off topic but just curious as I got the bill the other day for the pretty blue stickers. Don't even want to discuss watercraft personal property tax that is paid every year, agony to the 10th power.


When I checked 2 years ago, 3 year licensing for a houseboat in Ohio waters was $75. I don't think KY would accept that and still want their PPT $$$$.

Interesting that the concept of paying "property taxes" on a boat gets people so fired up. I suspect the practice has become an "issue" because, for so many years, the various counties were very lax about collecting them --and now they need that revenue.

From reading this thread and others on the same subject over the past 10 years, it appears that boaters sometimes get confused about this.

It is no different than your car or your truck.. You "register" your vehicle in the state where you live or where the vehicle is used (there is no Federal "Documentation" on private vehicles). THEN, once a year you pay a "Property" tax based on the current value of the vehicle. In many states (like Kentucky) you must pay the Property tax before you can get your current registration (IE: vehicle license tag).

The concept of a tax being "fair" or "unfair" cannot be measured. It's all in the eyes (or head) of the beholder. Just as a boat or a vehicle that is unattractive to you might be beautiful to the owner.

Not saying I don't love my country, I do, but have you lived anywhere else for an extended period of time to compare?

I sent my tax form in today by the way, I also emailed Marianne to let her know it was coming because they have lost it before.


I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said, "Support my country, always....support my government, only when they deserve it".

Just to further point out something, I was looking at an article in the Wall Street Journel that listed the top 100 countries in order of economic freedom. Years ago, America used to be in the top few. Now, we are around 10th or 15th, getting beaten by other countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, and Hong Kong.

We are overtaxed as a populace, we have the highest corporate tax on the planet, and we are ruining our childrens' and grandchildrens' futures with crushing debt. So when you say that you think this is the best place on the planet to live, I will agree that it is....for now. However, if this country doesn't get its' head out of its' *** in November, I may be looking to relocate after my wife retires so our retirement monies will actually allow us to live comfortably. I, for one, do not want to live in a socialist country under a card-carrying socialist, where everythinag is free except us. As a vietnam vet, having been in both the Navy (active) and the Army (ROTC), I value freedom too much. I haven't lost all hope, though. I think smarter minds will prevail.

93.3 cents per hundred.
$200,000 boat
2000 hundreds x 93.3 = $1866.00 PPTax
