Any tips for canoe registration? I'm mounting my old trolling motor to my canoe. I've paid the 3 year registration. The county clerk won't allow me to move forward unless I pay sales tax on the canoe the I've owned for +20 years. I purchased the canoe from Sam's, but must prove to the state that I've paid my taxes on the canoe. I thought that it was always innocent until proven guilty, but things are changing now. The County Clerk stated that they have asked someone with revenue. If I don't have proof that I've paid the sales tax, then I need to pay the tax again. I don't need to register a canoe, unless a motor is mounted to it. The same goes for the trolling motor, but magically if you combine the two, then thing get difficult to follow the rules.
