Starting January most trailers will be TAXABLE  as well as horse feed unless you have a TN "farmer" number.  This will surprise a lot of folks as basically trailers and feed have hertofore been non taxable.  The affidavit you used to sign is no longer valid.  In order to get a number you have to prove that you are a "farmer."  There are several definitions but in talking with another dealer today we suspect most folks who are strictly pleasure riders will end up paying the tax.  And feed becomes taxable here at 9.75%.  Ugh                                          For more clarification the TN dept of Rev site has an entire section devoted to the new rule changes and how to apply.

What a thought invoking topic....In WI there is no tax on feed, and you can get a farm exempt number to get around paying tax on all other farm type products, but I have no idea how we tax trailers.  I paid sales tax on mine when I registered it, but never thought if it would qualify to be tax exempt because of the farm.....Hmmm.....did I get hosed?  I'll hafta look into that.

Same here in GA.  We pay sales tax when we purchase a trailer and then pay property tax on the trailer for the rest of its life.  So, it not just what the purchase price of the new trailer is, but it is also how much $ is it going to cost to KEEP the trailer around.

Same here in North Carolina. We pay property tax on the trailer, truck, barn, horses, donkeys, tractors, the dog,,,, and sales tax on just about everything else. In some cases they tax the tax!! My inlaws live in Oakridge, Tn. (I call it Chernobyl, WW-II radioactive things in the soil there. They say not! I say there is, all the trees are dead!!) Inlaws always bragged about "we don't pay tax on this or that". Guess it's catching up with them.So welcome to the real world!!!

Our property tax is on the land and buildings.  In fact, if you have too many trucks, tractors, and trailers in your yard (ie:junk) your taxes may just go down!

In Minnesota you pay 6.5% sales tax plus your annual license plate fee. The sales tax is figured on the net amount after trades. Feed is not taxed, but fencing supplies are because they are considered like a building and are a permanent improvement. You can depreciate fencing on income taxes though. S

here in Virginia we pay taxes on the taxes.. sales tax on everything plus personal property tax and licensing fee for vehicles/trailers.  It's unreal!  My husband is in the military - vehicles are reg. in his name so  at least we don't pay personal property tax. Of course we have to on everything else.... Last summer we bought 76 acres in TN for eventual retirement.  guess we better find out about the new tax rules...

I don't know if I have to pay extra for the trailer but with the reg at $67 I hope not.  New Mexico did away with farm plates years ago, now they charge by the pound for tags. I paid more to get the tags on my horse trailer than we did on the 5th wheel.  

Here they charge "commercial" tax on all live stock.   Even on pets if you breed, if they can prove it.

Tennesseans have always supposed to have paid sales tax on trailers unless it was used for farm purposes.  A trailer with living quarters are classified like an RV and sales taxes should have been collected at the time of sale or at least when you went to the courthouse to title the trailer.  The reason you see a lot of trailer from Tennessee without tags on the trailer is because the owner signed a statement that the trailer was for farm use and he/her does not have a title to the trailer.  It will come back to bite you in the butt when you go to trade or sell the trailer and the new person wants a title.  You will then that to pay the sales tax in order to get a title to transfer to the new owner.

WOW I thought NY had to many taxes. Glad to be making a move to OREGON with no Sales tax and much lower property taxes. No wonder there is an undergound economy, (paying cash) to avoid paying sales taxes. I wonder if they ever heard of THE BOSTON TEA PARTY.

I grew up in TN. I have NEVER paid taxes on my livestock trailers. If you want to haul your trailer across state lines or more than 100 miles from you farm property, you must have the trailer registered! Or, you can get ticketed and/or put out of service on the spot.

My hubby was in the Army for 20 years. We have always kept our TN tags on all our vehicles. AR made us transfer our vehicle tags but not our trailer tags. We still have a place in TN to retire back to when we are done here. My rigs are constntly going back and forth between the two states. We have a GN stock, a 3H LQ and a 4H LQ. All carry TN apportioned plates that are good as long as we own the trailer. Two of those trailers have the AR address listed on the registration. One is techincally property of the TN place. All are legal wherever I go. It does not matter what state the trailer is licensed in as long as it has a valid one. That is why so many folks register their trailers in Maine. I guess I will have to consider that also in the future. Once the trailer has had the title recorded, no other state can make you pay sales tax after the fact. You do, however have to pay a title recording fee in the new state. We have learned to cross our T 's and dot our I's thru the years and have the legal documentation from the governing agencies.

On another note, the AR property tax is hard to live with here. They tax my Sportchassis annually at a rate that is higher than the property tax on our whole ranch! We brought our Tiara S2 yacht here from TN and the taxes were outrageous! It was the smallest one made that actually had a yacht title, only 29 ft long and you could legally transport it without special permits. You would have thought it was a darn cruise ship. I ended up taking the thing up to the courthouse before they would reclassify it, but they really didn't want to. We ended up just selling it.

In Tn. you have to buy a tag if it is a new trailer but only for the first year. I'v e had four LQ trailers and have only had tags for one and that is mainly because we go out of state quite often. Some states will give you a hard time if you don't have tags on a trailer even if it is not required in the state that it is liscenced in. I just bought one of the semi tags ( one time purchase $90 + - ) just to keep anyone from stopping me even if I don't have to have them. Still don't have them on bumper trailer and I go out of state with it also. Tn also has tax on all food @9.25 but no Income tax State income tax that is. Oh well we all have tax problems and it is not likely to get any better. Oh yea I have never paid sales tax on a horse trailer. Just tell them it is a horse trailer with a camper in the front.

I still don't see how that would work.I had to pay sales tax on both LQ's trailers that I bought,they didn't care what it had on it,it was a trailer and was taxable in my state.

We buy permanent trailer tags in Arkansas.Probably not such a good idea as much as we trade trailers,though.

Bet before long you'll have to register them. Seems to come with the territory of taxing them.

 I would think this would make trailer theft very difficult to track in TN....

Probably hard to track even with registration, unless the thief is dumb enough to leave the tag on it. Anyway, I ended up purchasing from a dealer and they did in fact charge sales tax. Double checked registration laws with TN Highway Patrol and registration for private noncommercial hauling is not required, although it is optional and a good idea for certain purposes.

The relevant codes can be read here:
