Indiana State Taxes

Choosing Indiana as an RV Domicile State

Indiana state taxes are important to think about when choosing your permanent RV domicile. But there are other things that full time RV families must consider when choosing an RV home base. These families need to know about Indiana homeschool laws, as well as Indiana drivers license and Indiana 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:
