Vermont State Taxes

Choosing Vermont as an RV Domicile State

Vermont state taxes are important to consider when choosing your full time RV domicile. RV families on the road need to consider other factors as well before making a decision, such as homeschooling in Vermont regulations, as well as Vermont drivers license and Vermont 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:

    Every state in the United States has different homeschooling laws and regulations. Some states are very difficult to homeschool in, some states are very easy, while most states fall somewhere in the middle. As homeschooling laws go, homeschooling in Vermont is not one of the better states.

    Homeschooling in Vermont has many hoops to jump through. Parents must submit an annual notice of intent to homeschool which includes independent evaluation on whether or not their child has a disability. They must also submit a course outline and may be subject to a hearing. Required courses are many, and diverse. Annually, students must be evaluated by a certified teacher or take standardized tests.
