Boat registrations are subject to excise tax. The amount of the tax is based on the length of the boat, the age of the boat, and the horsepower of the motor. The registration fee is based on the horsepower of the motor. An agent fee of $1.00 is also collected. Boat excise tax must be paid in the owner's town of residence regardless of where the boat is docked. Boat registrations expire December 31 each year. Dories & Canoes 20’ and under without a motor are excise exempt – but still must be registered with State of Maine Boat sticker/milfoil.
