Gennaver,
How do you file your income tax? You must have an address and that would create a tax liability for state income tax....when you file your federal return you must supply an address for any refund you may be entitled to. Auto and travel trailer registration and insurance is also an issue....you must pick a state.

I didnt know there was an option. We did ours here in Tn. The only thing that makes me mad (besides the taxes of course) is that the paperwork- for what ever reason- has a max 4-letter limit. SO, our title says "SCAM" grrrr....

When they would nab you would be if you were parking it in a driveway at a house or apartment and then it was obvious you were gone off to a job everyday. They are unlikely to mess with you if you are in an RV park or campground.

They are not likely to just randomly come up to you and question you. If they do just say you are visiting unless of course that is not true.

Why is this even a discussion????

You can be an illegal alien, get state and Federal government benefits, any number of state's will issue an illegal a driver's licence and register their car, truck or trailer and landlords will rent to them a place to live.

Given the above fact why would anyone "think" that any state government gives a rat's patuti about an old RVer traveling around the country, where they stay for 30 days or more and where they register their tow vehicle or tag along trailer/vehicle?

I like that line of thinking. But, state income tax, and voter registration seem to rise to the top of where you are a resident. Once the residency question is answered, that's where the licensing is done.

I was going to register my trailer in MT, to avoid paying taxes every year on it. But, during research found out that if your tow vehicle is from UT, with UT plates, pulling a trailer with MT plates and a UT officer pulled you over, you could get fined. I had to decide if the hassle would be worth the few bucks I would save every year.

Or you could do as neighbours of ours in TX park did register all their vehicles in MT saving considerably on the taxes they must pay yearly in their home state.

Just curious what roads you expect to drive on when everybody is avoiding paying taxes? What state parks are you going to camp at?

Smart people seek professional advise and reduce their tax burden.

Glenn seems to like donating his money to government agencies.
He may not know that drivers in the USA donate large volumes of their money for road construction every time they fill their gas tanks...taxes and more taxes that are supposed to be spent on roads...where does that money go??? In most cases it is lost in the state's "general fund" and never seen again!!!

Hi,
I have a PO Box near where I am working, (as a travel nurse.) I change the PO Box when I move. When I was working in Texas I made that my home of Record until I was working in Alaska for three years. When I worked next in Tennessee I didn't change my license until I was driving through to California, (where I work now.) When I drove through Arizona I used my dad's address as a home of record and changed my driver's license. Dad moved to AZ in 2005 but I've only visited him briefly in the last 3 years and he isn't reliable enough to use as an address.

Oddly enough, even though I pay taxes, the last 9 years I have received only a 1 dollar refund so, when I did my taxes this year, and saw 1 dollar again I did not freak out or even worry to care when the computer glitched as I tried to enter it. I just let it be. I heard that if you do not owe and the US doesn't owe you then it really doesn't matter if you file at the end of the year, (and in my case it really does NOT.)

Jen
p.s. edit to say, that Texas didn't have state taxes and I only just changed to an Arizona license this year, (January, so next year I will have to claim a state that does charge state taxes.)

When I was visiting California three or four years ago it was in the news that they had a reward program for turning in someone who was living there with an out of state license on their car.

If you work i. The state, you owe taxes.
If you are camping in a camp ground, not working, and are considered a transit, well then I guess you do t. Me, I just would not worry about it.

That's one nice thing about Tennessee and the way the state constitution is setup regarding taxation and the annual state budget spending. Our gas tax must be spent on the road maintenance and upgrades. By law the fuel tax cannot be spent on general fund obligations.

When you spend the money collected by fuel sales on roads, highways and infrastructure and that result is why we have good roads in Tennessee which also win awards annually by several trucking associations and other organizations. With 5 different interstates crossing Tennessee lot's of visiting folks enjoy the pleasure of buying fuel in the State of Tennessee and contributing to our economy!

How about that. Spending tax collections on the specific item for which they were collected!

What a novel idea!!!

We in Tennessee also have NO State income tax on earned income. The State of Tennessee runs on sales tax collections which are already almost $1BB dollars ahead of the TOTAL annual sales tax collection projections for fiscal year 2016 and that's just thru August of 2016. Four more months to go of EXTRA sales tax collections going the bottom line of the states coffers. You gotta love running a state on the sales tax. The taxing of retail sales is equitable and the SAME for EVERYONE including all our states wonderful residents, visitors and visiting/resident illegal aliens!

I remember Iowa setting up inspection stations and dipping fuel tanks of big trucks and charging them road tax based on the fuel onboard. I dont know if they still do that or not.
