I lived in Spokane 95-02. I remember when they charged a use tax, and it later got shot down by the voters. IIRC a guy in his early 20s led the charge that rid tax payers of the cost.

At the time my wife and I were driving new BMWs. Fortunately I was exempt from the WA vehicle use tax since I was non-resident active duty military, or I would have had to pay thousands to register every year.

Indiana is 7% sales tax on cash price or trade price...private or dealer. No property tax on vehicles. Title, transfer fees. Annual registration based on value of vehicle. Wheel taxes are a county option and rate.

I earlier posted this year’s plates & registrations:
16 Murano Platinum
’09 F 150 Lariat 4X4 Super Crew
’11 Vette
‘73 Vette
’12 Gold Wing trike
Pontoon
Fishing boat
Pontoon trailer
Boat trailer
Tandem landscape trailer
Utility trailer
Total: $1,275 for this year

Traded trucks today so another big hit for sales tax, title/transfer/document fees, probably couple hundred more for the plate fee for higher valued vehicle, etc. Then of course more $$for insurance. It never ends !

You people above who are getting all excited about 1% here and $1,000 there, you're too funny. Has nobody here recalled the Virginia property tax on cars? If I'm not mistaken that's up to 5% annually now. If I recall correctly hurricane was up around $1,000 a month for his Porsche. And that didn't cover the registration. LOL

A couple of years old but I doubt things are cheaper now...cost for all states for titling and annual average ownership costs. Michigan is the worst on a whole lot of things.

All labor had been exempt but on some invoices now labor seems to be taxed but not always. I don’t understand it but you have no choice so might as well accept it.

Initial registration and plating puts the vehicle into a category by cost/value. Yearly plate cost is determined by that category/value. That goes down over time ( depreciation, lower value ) so the annual cost of your plates for that vehicle decreases.

I’m not bitching...maybe complaining a little. Overall - total taxation, costs, etc to live here are much better than other states. But every gov’ entity keeps finding ways to spend more money and stick their hands deeper into my pocket and I am not noticing much of it benefiting me. The thread dealt with your state’s costs so just explaining mine.

None of what you said above is correct.

It is bad, but not quite that bad...

Add the Vette and a couple other cras and each year it was costing at least $1500.00 a year for tags alone. Came back to Florida and registered 5 cars and the total was just under $300.00 combined. Never again California, never.
Decades ago, if the bed had a shell it could get passenger tags. I don't know if it is still that way.

I recall it being 4% but last time I looked, at least some location was up to 5%, no? I seem to recall you mentioning what yours was and it was substantial, no?

Utah is based on year of the vehicle. $250 for new and goes down from there. Some counties have to do emissions which is $20.

How much are are you guys paying on property taxes?

Older cars are much cheaper, of course. My first Vette ran around $1500-$2000 per year in personal property taxes when I first bought it, more than my other two cars combined at the time.
That is crazy to me. I thought $250 was expensive.

Here in FL my total is $151.40 for an SUV, small car, boat, and two trailers. I'd probably be hard pressed to do better elsewhere.

So which state is the king of registration abuse?
You're being screwed. Move!!

Indiana isn't too bad.....registration fee is only $20 something dollars.........enter Billy Mays......but wait! There's more!

Excise tax
County Wheel Tax
Municipal Wheel Tax
TIIF (Transportation Infrastructure Improvement Fee)

All in all, for a 2012 VW Passat, a 2015 VW Sportwagen, and my 99 Vette, I paid a total of $550 last November. Oh yeah, it's based off of last name, so of course, right before the holidays for me.
