Loc: Pittsburg Texas. u.s.a.
The tax on a boat and motor is 6.25%, tax on a boat trailer is 6.25%--don't let a dealer charge you more than 6.25%, it is actually a felony in texas for a dealer to restructure tax rates for profit, it doesn't seem like a lot of money but if a dealer charges half a percent as taxes, they are actually stealing from the customer! I actually had a dealer argue with me about wanting to charge 6.75%.heck of a reason to loose a sale. I guess the dealer figured I was a idiot or figured I was wasting his time. Check your bill of sale folks, 1/2% on a 60 grand boat is 300.00!

I believe it depends on where you buy. Base rate is 6.25% but local taxes can add up to 2% more. Its 8.25% in Dallas.

I also believe the rate is 6.25% regardless of location. As if that isn't enough!!!

6.25% regardless of location...it is clearly on the forms that must be filled out. I would report anyone who tried to charge more. If anyone tries to pull the wool over your eyes, I would walk away and also report them to the BBB and comptroller office. Reputation is huge when it come to boat dealers.

No local sales tax on boats or vehicles
