Louisiana – A file # must be assigned to your application prior to scheduling the inspection.
1 – Complete Boat Registration/Boat and Motor Title Application and mail with fee ($96.00 for 18ft boat) to Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. I called to inquire on the status of my application 3 weeks after submitting and was informed that they were 12 weeks behind with opening mail. The Agent said a file number will be assigned to my application and I will receive the letter via mail in 9-12 weeks. I received the letter after 8 weeks.
2 – Drive to Louisiana State Department of Revenue with Tax Payment Certification Form (R-1331) or mail form if you feel lucky. Present receipts for materials purchased on-line and pay taxes. LDR will stamp their seal on the document certifying that taxes are paid.
3 – Bring Tax Payment Certification to parish (county) tax collector. Present receipts for materials purchased on-line and pay taxes. Same as above, mail if you are feeling lucky. LDR will stamp their seal on the document certifying that taxes are paid.
4 – After receiving the file number I had to call the field office in my region to schedule an on-site inspection. The first thing they asked for was the file number for my registration. The field office only conducts inspections on Mondays.
5 – The agents scrutinized every receipt I had for materials and compared it to the total amount claimed on the Tax Payment Certification Form that was stamped and certified by both departments.
6 – This process took approximately 10 weeks to complete. The wildlife agent said the registration documents will be mailed to my house.

Hi Salty,

Total costs were: $183.00 state taxes, $164.14 parish taxes, $96.00 registration fee.

I forgot to mention that once you receive the letter with the file # you only have 30 days to schedule the inspection. If the boat is not inspected within 30 days the file # will expire and you have to re-submit. You will also need to bring form "Affidavit of Boat Inspection" with you. The wildlife agent can sign this form in lieu of getting the form notarized.
