The Taxman Cometh

The Town of Buxton has issued a notice to boat owners.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO BOAT OWNERS

The 2017 Boating Season is just around the corner!
All boat owners who have boats registered in a state other than the State of Maine, as well as owners of documented boats are subject to pay a State of Maine Excise Tax to the Town where the owner of the boat resides, as described in Title 36 MRS Ch. 112 § 1503.

Excise Tax is due to the Town of Buxton on any watercraft owned by our residents registered with the US Coast Guard. It is to be paid within 10 days of the first operation of the watercraft upon the waters, or prior to July 1st, whichever comes first. If you no longer own your vessel, please notify us to let us know so that we may update our data.

Have a safe and enjoyable boating season!
