It is the responsibility of the registered boat owner to file a Form of List each year by August 1st. If the Form of List is not returned, the boat owner will be responsible for all excise tax assessed for that year. Only with a reasonable excuse for failure to file and if the return is filed on or before October 31st of the year in which the tax is assessed may an abatement be issued. (CH 60A § 2 Para E)
