So I got the letter from the State of Maine the other day...

We bought Maia in CT two years ago, paid cash for the sale and changed the documentation over. Apparently the state of Maine feels we owe them sales tax for our purchase in CT. The thing I don't remember is whether we paid CT sales tax two years ago, I'll have to pull the paperwork from the sale.

Interesting that when I paid our excise tax in Belfast this spring there was no mention of a sales tax obligation, though that is a municipality tax not state, though I wonder if that triggered the state letter.

I like to play by the rules but does anybody here think that I need to be 100% honest about what we paid for the boat?
