State's low registration fees draw interest from RVers — and others hoping to avoid their state's costsOut-of-state vehicle registrations create a sizable hunk of income for South Dakota. According to information from the state Division of Motor Vehicles, South Dakota last year titled and licensed approximately 6,600 vehicles whose owners have out-of-state addresses. They generated about $1.1 million in excise tax and approximately $300,000 in license-plate fees. While licensing vehicles from out of state can bring extra money to South Dakota counties, the practice also can be a headache to county agents and could be construed as nothing more than a legal loophole for out-of-state residents seeking to avoid paying higher license fees and other taxes.
