Default Out of state boat purchase

Looking at buying a boat(used) from a dealership in Texas. I live here in La. Can anyone shed a little light on the situation concerning taxes and what not? I'm getting different stories from other people. The dealership is waypoint Marine in corpus. If anyone has any experience with that dealership some feedback would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance!

My last two boats were From Texas im purchasing new Haynie as we speak

Once you buy boat you have to pay your taxes in La only
Have to go to school board get a signature , then courthouse to pay taxes
. Then file your registration with WLF

I recently bought out of state. You have to download form R-1331 from the department of revenue. It has instructions on it. You either have to send in your state taxes, or go to baton rouge and pay them. They will fill out their portion of the R-1331 showing your state taxes paid. You then take that form to your parish tax collector. In St. Tammany parish it is in the sheriff station. You pay your parish taxes and they fill out their portion. You then send that into LDWF along with their boat registration form and fees to register your boat.

If you can, I recommend going to baton rouge in person and paying your state taxes. They are known for loosing forms or taking weeks and weeks in some cases to get the form back to you.

If it is a broker you will have to pay La. taxes. If you buy from an individual you do not.

I bought my current boat from an individual last year (in LA) and still had to pay the sales tax before the LAWF would process my new registration.

Taxes are one thing. Then you have the trailer title to deal with also. I hear it's a pain.

They must have changed the rules a few years ago. I purchased a bay boat through a broker in Florida a few years back and had to pay taxes. Then in 15 I bought a boat from an individual and did not have to pay taxes.

I went back and looked at my paperwork. The ruling was effective April 1, 2016.

Just bought a boat motor and trailer in Fla. All three have separate titles. And you will have to go to DMV for trailer, Parish tax collectors office for parish taxes, and Get the state form on States website. I was able to pay the state online. After all that then you can send to wildlife and fisheries. Its not a big deal just gotta go thru it.

This. Just bought a new boat from TX less than a month ago. The bank took care of the trip to the DMV for me, so that was nice. Had to go to school board office to pay state and parish taxes. You shouldn't have to go to separate places for these two taxes. Once they're paid, you can register your boat with WLF. I drove to BR to get my registration instead of waiting for it in the mail. Took less than 5 minutes. No telling how long it will take if you mail it all in. They say 2-3 weeks, but I've never been that lucky and know some people who have waited for months. I think you are good to go without a registration for 30 days or so, but I could be wrong on that.

Thanks for the replies fellas. Spoke with the dealership today and what they are telling I will have to pay the taxes there in Texas then when back in La I have to pay the differential. Which I guess is the same as just paying the taxes here. Except with 2 seperate transactions. Now I just have to talk myself into making the drive that far for a boat.
