Colorado cracks down on registration of RVs out of state

DENVER ” Twelve Coloradans have pleaded guilty to felony charges of registering their recreational vehicles in Montana to avoid Colorado state taxes.

The Colorado Department of Revenue said Wednesday that 122 RV owners have been billed a total of $2.7 million for unpaid sales taxes, penalties and interest.

The Department of Revenue and attorney general’s office teamed up on the criminal and civil cases.

Twelve people in Jefferson, Boulder, Arapahoe and Weld counties received deferred sentences after pleading guilty to felony tax evasion charges. They were ordered to pay restitution, register their RVs in Colorado and perform community service.

Colorado officials said that several states have problems with high-priced RVs being registered in Montana because the state doesn’t have sales taxes on motor vehicles and has low registration fees. A recreational vehicle can cost as much as $1 million.
