MIDDLESEX COUNTY BOAT TAX ON 5+ TON VESSELS REDUCED
We are happy to report that on April 26, 2018 Middlesex County Board of Supervisors voted to reduce the Personal Property Tax on Vessels 5 Tons and greater for the 2018 budget year. We hope this Middlesex County decision is the 1st step to entirely removing this tax on our customers.
The personal property tax for boats 5+ tons was reduced to .61 per $100 assessed vessel value, a 38% reduction from the 2017 rate of .98 per $100 assessed vessel value.
In most cases a 5+ ton vessel is 26′ or greater. Although length is not the measure, but volume.
*Personal Property tax on boats located in Middlesex January 1st and normally kept in Middlesex- DOES NOT apply to boats in Middlesex for service or on a temporary basis.
We will continue to work with our Middlesex Board of Supervisors to educate them as to the affect of the boat tax on our customers.
Thank you to our many wonderful customers who choose Deltaville Yachting Center & Chesapeake Yacht Sales for their boating needs.
