Hawaii State Tax

Choosing Hawaii as an RV Domicile State

Hawaii state tax is one of a number of considerations to think about when deciding what state you may want for your RV domicile. Other considerations for full time RV travel with kids families might include logistical concerns, Hawaii homeschool laws, and Hawaii drivers license and Hawaii 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:
