the taxes on a personal sale are nothing to worry about, the issue is make sure they have the mso or trailer paperwork.. alabama does not require a tag on a boat trailer.

The sales department/finance should be able to calculate the taxes as a matter of routine.

I bought my boat out of state and I think I paid taxes on it when I registered it in Florida.

When you go to register it you will be paying fla. Sales tax. If you have paid tax on another state you will either get a refund if you paid more or owe more if less than fl tax. Make sure uou have proper paperwork. Trailer will get registered also.
