I teach a 90 minute class at RV rallies on choosing a home base for fulltimers, and one thing I stress is that you have to cut all ties to your former state and establish new ones in your new state.
This is important because more and more states are clamping down on residents who cheat the system by setting up LLCs or an account with a mail forwarding service in a state with low sales tax and registration fees but still live and sometimes even work in their home states. Some don’t even change their drivers license. States like Colorado and California, among others, are levying heavy fines and penalties for people they catch. And unfortunately, some actual fulltimers with good intentions find themselves caught in the middle.
Looking at it from the state’s point of view, they lose money. So if there is a way to show a person has one foot in one state and another in their old state, they have a chance to go after them and collect something, and they will.
