The OH registration for my trailer plates and stickers on my boat are expiring over this off season, and I need to renew them. Do any of you OH residents know if there is a way to do this online? If not, where can I get the forms to send in for new stickers?

I've never done it online so i don't know if it's possible. If you have never had the trailer registered in ohio,you'll have to get weighed first. As far as the boat registration,just take title to B.M.V office closest to you, fill out paper work and they'll give you registration sticker. If you're already registered in ohio,you should get info in the mail on getting '06 watercraft sticker.

For trailer plates...

www.oplates.com

They have a "live help" button during business hours that can be very helpful, if needed.

Not sure about boat reg.

Why not just change the registration over to your home state?

I believe so. I was just poking fun at him. I'm not really sure why he would not want to register it in his home state?

Tax evasion?

it is just like car tags about 6 weeks prior to them expireing you will be sent a notice to renew all you need to do is send it back in with the money or do it online and you will get your sticker before the tags expire. it works the same for your boat registration. have done it that way for years

I had to pay taxes on it once in OH, and to register it in IL I will have to pay again, so I don't really want to do that. So, I was just going to keep it as an OH boat. Doesn't really hurt anything to keep it registered in OH...

Why did you pay taxes in Ohio? You should not have to!

I bought my boat last year out of state and DID NOT pay taxes until I registared it back in my home state. (of Ohio)

Don't you have to be an Ohio resident, or at least have an address, in order to register it there? Tax problem seems strange, usually you pay the tax in your state when you register/title it.

That's what I'm thinking. I bought mine from a guy in Ohio a few years ago and didn't pay tax until I wanted to get the title switched over here in Wisconsin.

Not sure, I'll have to go back and look at the paperwork to be sure.

I bought my boat in Indiana and had to pay there then make up the differance back here in Ohio.Indiana was 6.5% and Ohio was at 7%.

Is there any harm or anything illegal about keeping it registered in OH?? :confused:

I think the problem would be that you don't have a perm. address there.

If you bought the boat there while living out of state, you shouldn't have paid taxes there. Then, when you applied for plates / reg. where you live, you would have been taxed then.

At least that is what I did about a year ago. Bought a truck in Indiana, then transferred the title (Texas oddly enough) over to michigan & paid MI taxes. There may have been some extra form involved, don't remember.

I question this because I have my snowmobiles registered in WI w/ my IL address, so I would prefer keeping the boat registered in OH and using my IL address and not paying taxes again.....I'd rather have some extra gas money.

If you have proof that you paid taxes in OH, you should not have to pay them in IL. I bought a snowmobile in IL this Fall and paid WI tax in IL. The dealer was responsible for getting that money to the WI DNR. When I registered the sled at the DNR office I showed the bill of sale that had the tax paid and I was all set. Did you buy it from a dealer or private party? I would guess that you would have a hard time registering the boat in OH if you don't live there or keep the boat there(2nd home etc.).

I have bought motorcycles out of state several times. Certain states made me pay their taxes and I just had to show my DMV that I paid the taxes in those states and I was able to register it.
