The Sales Tax Deduction

For boat owners who paid substantial state sales taxes on a new or used boat purchase last year, the Tax Extenders Act of 2008 signed by President Bush on October 3 continues to offer a federal tax benefit with a deduction for state sales taxes. Boaters must choose either the state sales tax deduction or state income tax deduction on their federal tax return -- you cannot take both.

In addition, to take the state sales tax deduction, the sales tax on a boat purchase must be applied at the same tax rate as the state's general sales tax. In order to claim the sales tax deduction, tax returns must be itemized. State sales taxes are entered on IRS form Schedule A, line 5b.

The Boat Loan Deduction

For those owners with a secured boat loan, mortgage interest paid on the loan may be deductible from your federal income taxes. Taxpayers may use the "second home" mortgage interest deduction for one primary home and one second home and must itemize deductions on their returns. A boat is considered a second home for federal tax purposes if it has a galley, a head, and sleeping berth.

Some boaters may be unaware of this potential tax benefit because not all lending institutions send borrowers an Internal Revenue Service form 1098 which reports the interest paid. Not receiving the form does not preclude taking the deduction. If a 1098 is not available, boaters should contact their lender for the amount of interest paid and should enter it on line 11 on Schedule A along with the lender's tax ID number. If a form 1098 is sent, boaters should simply enter the amount on line 10 of Schedule A.

ZF Marine Group (ZF) and Cummins MerCruiser Diesel (CMD) have reached a joint supply and development agreement for the Zeus® Pod Drive System.

Currently ZF supplies custom-built transmissions that CMD integrates into Zeus® Pod Drive Systems. The agreement expands this cooperation to include ZF sales of the completed Zeus® Pod Drive Systems and controls for integration with other manufacturers' engines, as well as cooperative development of a smaller pod propulsion system.
Under the terms of the agreement CMD will continue to service propulsion systems sold by CMD while Zeus® Pod Drive Systems sold by ZF to other marine engine makers will be serviced by ZF and those engine manufacturers.

As part of this agreement, ZF Marine Group and Cummins Mercruiser Diesel have also announced the introduction of a new Pod system especially designed for diesel engines up to 450 hp.

This pod series was co-developed by ZF and Mercury Marine, and components will be manufactured by both companies for use in the final assembly.

The new system will benefit from most of the technologies already implemented into the Zeus® 3500 and 3800 Pod, such as joystick control and safety-minded rear-facing propellers, and also includes some unique features such as:
Very light weight
Electrical steering
Proportional-controlled shifting and trolling
Very low profile
