The start of tax season brings several considerations for RV owners, including potential RV tax deductions and the registration of RV sales. If you sold your RV in the previous tax year, the IRS may require you to report the sale when preparing your tax return. If you are selling your RV, you must notify the IRS before the sale or complete the paperwork after the sale in order to meet your tax obligations. Ensure you comply with state and federal tax laws by discussing RV tax reporting requirements with your IRS.
