Income tax, whats that

I would guess that the kind of people we are talking about here have never worked a real job in their lifes. If they would commit insurance fruad and violate VTL Im sure skiping paying income tax would be no problem for them.

one person whom I was talking about paid his taxes, worked for the nycd of sanatation and lived a good life. nothing illegal going on. as a matter of fact, he owned 3 homes, one in florida and two on long island. his vehicles were all registered to his home in florida.

You then need to pick which state you are going to add the 1/2 day to make the 183rd day, which is the one you claim as your legal residence. In other words where you spend the most time. Generally, that decision is predicated upon many factors, often taxes and inheritance laws.

If, you spend more time in New York, then you should not have a Florida license, registration and insurance, because your legal residence is New York. As far as the burden of proof, if you are ticketed for this, you will need to prove which state is the legal residence and I would suggest that you are not on the wrong side of that equation as the ramifications can be costly.
He worked in nyc so I guess he did claim his residence in new york.

I have homes and vehicles in two states with NY being my primary residence. My northern registered and insured vehicles stay up north and are rarely driven back to NY. The insurance agent up north (it's been 8 years so I don't recall specifics) indicated that there can be issues if it is proven that you're registering and insuring outside of the state where the bulk of the driving occurs.

Twingles might be able to shed more light on that.

In northern CA, my friend who's CHP, explained that the state aggressively pursues CA licensees who register vehicles in OR in an effort to circumvent CA's steep registration fees.

I think they would have better luck at nabbing someone that wins a million dollar for life scratch off in new york and giving it to her son who lives in england and says he gave her the money for it making him pay almost nothing in taxes. those are the crooks they should go after.
