Boat Registration and Title Information

The Page County Recorder has the responsibility of registering and titling vessels of Page County residents and non-residents if the vessel is principally used in Page County.

Boat registrations expire on April 30th, every three years starting in 2007. Boat fees are based on the length of the boat. All boats 17 feet and longer require a title (except canoes and kayaks).

Items needed when transferring a boat:

Bill of Sale for ATV, ORV, Boat, or Snowmobile
Most recent registration (signature of seller required on backside of registration)
Title, if applicable (signature of seller required on backside of title)
Proof sales tax has been paid, if applicable

State Sales Tax Information:

Sales of boats and other watercraft in Iowa are subject to the state sales tax of 5 percent plus local option taxes, if any. This applies to sales by Individuals, as well as, dealers.
Anyone purchasing a boat from an individual should obtain a receipt that shows the cost of the boat. The buyer will then pay the sales tax on the cost of the boat to the County Recorder.
