RE: Max4 class b rv possible scam

there would be no logical reason A Montana LLC can buy a motorhome with no sales taxes...and the plate is permanent so no yearly visit to DMV or inspection etc. So the owner can live and park the thing in any State...never ever even seeing MT. This is why many motorhomes have MT plates- a tax dodge. There are anumber of services which will walk your LLc paperwork through, and act as you agent supplying an address for Docs. I ran into a fella buying used motorcycle parts- his Prevost motorhome was purchased just that way- he saved enough ( he said) to cover a Harley FLHTK and a lift. That might explain any MT connection mikeThe sale can be conducted in any state in the Union. You don't have to buy it in Montana to register an RV to a Montana LLC. All you need is to file the proper paperwork to create that LLC. You don't even need an attorney to file those documents, but most people do hire an attorney familiar with the process to make things simple. A Montana LLC to register an RV and a company manufacturing and selling RVs have nothing in common.

RE: Montana LLC

The purpose of a Montana LLC is to avoid tax, commonly called tax evasion. Most states are well aware of this tax dodge and make you py accordingly. There is a dramatic difference between tax avoidance and tax evasion. One is legal the other is not. As the great Judge Learned Hand stated in 1934 when ruling in the Gregory v. Helvering case in an appeals court ruling which was later affirmed: "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands." Most courts would agree that forming a business for the sole purpose of reducing taxes would not be a legitimate enterprise and doing so would be tax evasion, not tax avoidance.

RE: Montana LLC

One reason for having a Montana LLC purchase and own aaa RV is to save the sales tax. Some states do not impose huge sales taxes so that mitigates some advantage. If you already purchased the vehicles, then there may not be any savings. Insuring and financing vehicles owned by a Montana LLC can be difficult.

Montana LLC

We are starting to transition to full time and we just got a 5th wheel and new truck. Had someone tell us we could tag both the truck with a Montana LLC. I have no ideal how this is done. For now I would like to keep my Maryland driver license. Anyone know if this can be done

RE: clue me in

IF, the situation is as described, the purchaser intends to use the vehicle they are buying to facilitate leaving their current state I would have no issue with them setting up a Montana LLC and avoiding the payment of a substantial amount of sales tax to a state they will no longer live in. Likewise, I don't have a problem with people who use LLCs to register their RVs if those RVs never enter their state of residence, I.E. they live in New York, yet store the RV in Georgia for the Summer and use only in the South during the winter. In those types of situations, the rig never touches New York, so why would New York be entitled to any tax revenue? Montana LLCs are a tool for special circumstances and in my opinion the situation laid out by the OP meets those circumstances.

RE: clue me in

The Montana LLC situation arises when the LLC owner brings the RV into their domicile state for longer than that state's laws allow without registering it in that state. For example, if you register your RV via a Montana LLC and then bring it to your Massachusetts home to store it for the winter. If/when Mass. notices the Montana plates and that it has been there longer than the 30 day limit then they will investigate and cite you if warranted.

RE: Montana LLC

Being a fulltimer allows you to pick and choose whichever state you desire. As others have said, South Dakota, Florida and Texas appear to be the states that most use. No problem with the Montana LLC if you use South Dakota according to what others have posted. Why would you even bother with a Montana LLC if you did a domicile in South Dakota? You would be a SD "resident" and thus I do not see any tax advantage to a MT LLC. Using the Montana LLC would save the sales tax on the purchase. Apparently South Dakota does not chase fulltimers who use the Montana LLC's which would free up the purchaser on the sales tax and any other charges that SD might levy but Montana doesn't. Also an LLC is not a bad idea from an asset protection standpoint. I believe in order to register you coach in South Dakota you must prove to the state you paid the sales tax when you bought the coach. At least I had to five years ago when I registered mine there. Then I guess I will never set up residence in SD. I bought my rigs right here in Montana, and no sales tax has ever been paid on any of them. If I want to get away from the Montana income tax, looks like I will have to move to Wyoming!

RE: Montana LLC

I have noticed when a new person asks a serious question (to them it is a new question and they are seeking our advice),the old "I'll get the popcorn" from Executive and further piled on by Effy by likewise unintelligent answers. Well, Dennis is a retired LEO from Kalifornia and fled the state to avoid paying taxes on his retirement. He most likely found the South Dakota residence from this forum, yet belittles the "new person" for asking the same question. Effy is renown for piling on. No advice, just blather. If I was the OP, I would have left the building also. The Montana LLC will come up again as new people sign on. Only mowertech and taxman give responsible answers. Thanks to both of you. Fortunately for our industry (MH), new people are buying and asking for help. Being self destructive is not good for anyone. OP's been on here for 2 years this is the first post. It took me 1 day to learn how to search the forums and this has been discussed ad-nausea. Further OP never rejoined the conversation. If your skin is so thin you run from that then I have no empathy. My guess is it was never a serious question. I know some folks like to pretend to be moderator, but you're not. You take yourself way too seriously. So I am renown for piling on? I never knew I was so famous. I'm touched.

RE: Montana LLC

My question is, should I get a DP or gasser to set up in my Montana LLC? Should it be new or used? How many slides and of what brand? Should I tow 4 down or a dolly? Should I use antifreeze or blow out the lines when winterizing? I mean if we are going to repeatedly beat this topic to death, shouldn't we just compile all the "beating a dead horse" topics together? You forgot to ask if you can set up "camp" at a local Wal*Mart....:B:B....Dennis :S Aw man, how could I forget that one? Thanks Dennis .

RE: Montana LLC

I would vote with those who said "as a full time RVer, choose your state of residency according to all the info you can find, and register your RV in your state of residency" As for those who try to register their RV in a state they do not reside in... I tried to do that. I had a Montana LLC for several years for my internet business, and when I bought the new bus, I titled it in the name of the existing Montana LLC, and got Montana plates. It took the Illinois revenuers less than a year to come after me, mostly because contrary to Illinois law, our Knight lived in Illinois for more than 30 days at a time. I learned a lot while corresponding with the "revenuer" I bought my RV in Florida. Before I hit the state line, they had told the state where I held a drivers license (Illinois)... The Illinois revenuers knew everything. They knew where I stored the rig. They knew what RV forums I posted on, and what my user ID was on each of them. In the end, I paid the 7.75% sales tax, plus some interest and penalties, Near $7000. I'd suggest that fulltimers cross all the T's and dot all the I's in establishing residency in a tax friendly state. Those of us not yet full time, it's probably not worth messing around.
