CT Boaters Face Luxury Tax Proposal
April 22, 2011
While many of the tax levies—including a property tax on boats—originally included in Connecticut governor Dan Malloy’s state budget bill were removed Wednesday, marine-related businesses in Connecticut are urging boaters in the Constitution State to speak out against the proposed luxury tax of 7% on boats over $100,000.
The Connecticut boating industry is concerned that a luxury tax will drive boaters to purchase and store their vessels in Rhode Island, which has no luxury tax. Concerned boaters are urged to send a message to their state legislator this week or Monday by going to: BOAT US ACTION ALERT.
Contact your representative by next Tuesday, April 26.
