Makes me wonder what kind of controls the mfg has in place for employee sales. The groundskeeper could really subsidize his/her income if she/he was allowed to buy as many boats in a year as wanted--just put them on eBay or someplace and earn the discounted difference back...

Employee's do get a discount, but they cannot sell the boat for 3 years. A lot of people in Independence and Southeast Kansas register and use their boats in Oklahoma. Oklahoma about $150 year, Kansas $1000 year. Most use them in Oklahoma on Grand or one of the other lakes that is nearby a lot, so it only makes sense to register there.
BTW: That is a very well kept and maintained boat. And the boat has been used almost exclusively in Oklahoma on Grand Lake.
Winter is way to long and Summer is Way to Short!!
Property taxes in KS are outrageous. I know of a really nice steak house in Independence that went out of business a long time ago because of a major increase in property taxes. A lot of people will keep their boats on the bigger lakes in Oklahoma, year round, so they register them there. The Grove tag agent is one of the busiest there is.
No doubt about Kansas personal property taxes. My 03 Larson 210 was around $800 last year. It's just crazy. I didn't realize it until it was to late, but the majority of boaters I knew that had a boat that was worth anything, had them registered in OK.
