Arizona State Tax Rate

Choosing Arizona as an RV Domicile State

The Arizona state tax rate is an important issue to consider when choosing an RV domicile or RV home base. Other factors for full time RV families to consider will include the Arizona homeschool law, and Arizona drivers license and Arizona auto insurance requirements.

The nice thing about having no ties to any state is the ability to choose your RV domicile, or RV home base. You can find a state that offers the best set of options for you and your family, depending on your individual needs. Of course, not every full time RV family has the ability or option of choosing their domicile. See the following page to determine if your domicile has been chosen for you:
