    Tax Bill for Campers

    Skirmishers, those of you getting tax bills for your campers, this is nothing new. Unless you were not paying taxes on them before. Evidently the tax assessors have been around and are catching up. I contacted the Frederick County Tax office and they insist that the rates have not gone up at all since last year. My tax bill did not change, however my camper is very old and is being taxed at the lowest value. This is not and N-SSA issue. If you have questions call the tax assessors office at the number on the back of the bill. Scott Lynch, Chesapeake Region Commander

    Scott is correct, taxes are supposed to have been paid for years... Although they do make errors so please check your assessment (we got one today that said 2006 and the trailer is only a 1994, which is a BIG $$ difference)

    Yeppers ,,,,,Nut'n New. I've been getting a tax bill on my 1972 camper since 2001 and paying it. Costs $18 a year up from the $9.90 I originally paid back in 2001. Very small price to pay all things considered.

    Are these all trailers with VA license plates (tags)?

    taxes

    Don't quote me on this but I believe it is only for the trailers without tags all others are considered mobile property. The Michigan group next to us has permanent tags on their trailers, from Michigan, and therefore receive no tax from the County.

    Taxes on Campers

    It does not matter if the tags are from Mars, if the trailers spend more than half of the year at the fort you must pay the taxes. If you can prove that you are paying personal property taxes on it in your home state you might be able to avoid the Frederick County taxes, you would have to check with them. Once upon a time we, the N-SSA required that the trailers have current registration, have tires that were aired up and in place so that the trailer could be moved. However, that went by the wayside. As Past Commander Royal Inge once said, "Fort Shenandoah is where trailers come to die!"

    They die, but nobody buries them.

    MY pickup camper doesn't have tag on it and I paid taxes on it for years. If your camper is old and in bad shape you can call the tax office and request it to be exempt from tax. That is what I did a couple of years ago. But be sure to save the paper work that they send you.

    The key here is putting the camper somewhere where the tax assessor can't find it. Bob Propst hid mine in a dumpster.

    Jim, the skunks and other vermin were keeping us awake nights picketing the Shebang for not meeting standards. Have you ever seen a dumpster cringe? A horrible sight....

    My used and abused trailer was $4.95 or so for tax. Probably cost more to process it than they get in return.

    see you next week. Bob
