Question permanent legal residence?

for any of you who live in your skoolie permanently: how have you dealt with the issue of a permanent address? i need one for purposes of registration, insurance, voting, etc., but what if the bus is my primary residence? what if i have no "permanent" address? is there a way you know of dealing with this situation?

This link has good info around permanent residency when full timing. There are various mail forwarding services that you can use to get mail also.

How about you get a PO box at the nearest post office?

Most fulltimers use one of the mail forwarding companies in Florida, Texas, or South Dakota. These are the states that are most friendly to this "arrangement". In the case of South Dakota, I made one trip there to establish residency and get my drivers license. The mail forwarder that I use deals with the annual vehicle registration. Works great for me.

so if you list with one of those companies.. ie one in florida do you pay your income taxes in that state? we are moving our company HQ to florida, however since we are an LLC, they nail us for state income taxes where our houses are.. just wondering how a skoolie full-timer that works On-grid files state and local taxes

Yes, that is correct. You are a resident of that state and everything "works" that way - even when you are not actually there.

In my case, I am employed and I use America's Mailbox (Americas-Mailbox Home - mail forwarding - Americas-Mailbox) in South Dakota. My domicile/permanent mailing address is the address provided by Americas Mailbox. I have a SD drivers license and license plates on both vehicles. No state personal income tax in SD (or FL). Voting is done via absentee. Bank accounts and such all use that SD address. I have the plan that allows me to see the mail that has arrived (the filter junk mail automatically), select which items I want trashed, and which are to be forwarded to me. Every once in a while (once a month or so) I have the waiting mail sent to wherever I am (usually via USPS general delivery). If an important mail item arrives, they will open and scan the contents for me which I can then view via their website.

And! If you signup with Americas Mailbox and mention my name, I get a credit of some sort!!

Edit: I should probably mention that this is all legal and works for fulltimers as they travel a lot and really do not "live" in any one place. I suspect people have attempted to cheat the system doing this (but actually living somewhere) and I bet the IRS figures it out pretty quick so I'm not advocating that.

Use a mailing address...you may have to have a permanent address to back up THAT address...but once established you're good to go

I use a relatives address in Florida - but on the tax question: my company says that I can’t work out of state (I do work remotely) - but they say if I travel out of state, I would have to pay income tax in that state (even if it is just for a day). Is there any knowledge on this one? I am sure they track my IP address when traveling - but is that a real thing?
