Not a Manatee County resident? Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents needing to process title and/or registration transactions for vehicles, boats, and mobile homes can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.
There are very specific circumstances in which you may be exempt from paying sales tax on the purchase price of boat:
(1) When you move from another state and you've been the titled owner in that state for at least 6 months or longer.
(2) When a boat is given to you, from an individual, for no consideration in return (no money exchanges hands).
(3) When you trade boats with someone else and no additional consideration is exchanged.
(4) When you inherit a boat from someone who is deceased.
Other situations may qualify for a full or partial sales tax exemption.
