TOPEKA, Kan. November 1, 2012 – It’s hard to be boat owner in Kansas. With a high personal property tax on registered vessels, many boaters risk breaking the law to keep their boats in neighboring states. However, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) is urging sunflower state boat owners to head to the polls on November 6 and vote“yes”on the Boat Property Tax Amendment to allow the legislature to reduce or even remove the personal property tax paid on boats.
“Boating is solidly middle class, and it creates job opportunities,” said BoatUS President Margaret Podlich. “Kansas boat owners are moms and dads, your fishing buddies or possibly your neighbors, and taxing them at this high rate hurts both them and the state.”
