So I recently bought my first bass boat, a life long dream of mine. After a couple of months and a previous owners lost title, I finally have the boat registered and in my name. Now I need to get my boat trailer registered, the existing license plate is long expired. Would I get that at the DMV or the county tax office for that? And what all do I need? I've had a hard time getting any of this information and would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance
Take the license plate and bill of sale for the trailer listing: trailer make, model, year, number of axels, gross curb weight, and VIN to your local Tax Assessor's office. You'll pay sales and use tax on the price of the trailer. Then they will get you squared away for registration: new plates will probably be issued.
