Public Service Announcement
« on: May 13, 2016, 11:42:29 AM »
The state of Massachusetts has had a law on the books regarding OHRV Registration since 2011.  The expectation of The State of Massachusetts is that anyone driving an OHRV (in our cases a Jeep) needs to register said vehicle and apply stickers issued upon registration to the vehicle in use.  There is a plan to implement "Zero Tolerance" on this law starting May 15th.  Word being passed along to us is that tickets have already been issued prior to the "Zero Tolerance" date.  Please refrain from posting up any trail names and or locations.....this is simply to make everyone aware of what is happening.  This does also include Private Property.  For anyone interested in the process to register, it is as follows.
You will need:
1. CT Reg(assuming you live in CT)
2. Completed signed Registration and Titling App - http://www.mass.gov/eea/grants-and-tech-assistance/enforcement/environmental-police/boat-ohv-and-snowmobile-registration-bureau/registrationtitlingform.pdf
3. ST-6E form - Tax Exemption Form
      You can get this tax exemption form online at masstaxconnect https://mtc.dor.state.ma.us/mtc/_/
      At bottom, go to "I Want To"
      Select "File Sales/Use Tax on Recreational Vehicles"
      Hit the button for ST-6E and fill it out
      You end up with a printable certificate exempting you from mass tax because you bought the Jeep out of state.
4. Check or MO for $33 (They do not accept cash)

We've heard $200 - $500 for the first offense, then up to $1000. More than enough to take the shine off a day out Jeeping.

Can someone clarify? A few of us did this back in 2011 or 2012, then we were told that Jeeps were exempt.

Dave, who said that Jeeps were exempt back then? All of our information says that Jeeps were and still are included.

  Dave - the few of us registered back then and let our registrations expire...  Good news it those that registered back then can still renew on line without having to drive to Springfield :wink:
