license plate fee

Recommended Posts

South Dakota tags for Clyde are $118, and have been since I titled him there (Mom worked in Pierre at the time, and Dad cosigned the loan).

 

Wyoming looks like it could run from $329 to $400, depending on what values are used. I wounder if I can use actual weight and what I paid? :lol:

Here is what the folks in Denver get to deal with:

Sales tax is calculated on the net purchase price (which is the total purchase price less the amount allowed by a dealer for any trade-in). The rate of tax for Denver County residents is as follows:

 

 

Sales Tax  Rate
Colorado State Tax 2.90%
RTD Tax 1.10% 
Denver City Tax  4.31%
Total Sales Tax 8.31%

this blew me away when I moved to Colorado...

I forgot to mention something that OK has running as a government backed scam, I couldn't believe it was real.

 

Oklahoma has a majestic book of values it is based on, that excludes any condition or the mileage. That is what you are taxed on for the registration fees. Some of you may remember the Z28 I had a few years ago and the rant that went with the purchase. It had 282k miles and a disgusting interior, bought to be a track car. I paid like 3000 something for it, and when I went to register, they say, oh, that's more than 20% off book value, so that(the mystical book value) is what you will be charged. Book value was like 6k. So I was taxed for 6k.  If your purchase price is so far off the "book", you get charged the book, even if you have a bill of sale or invoice with price. They said it doesn't matter if it's destroyed and has a million miles, you pay what the state decided it is worth.

I titled my use 76 Corvette in Utah in like 1980 and was charged full NEW MSRP for sales and registration. Reason given was Luxury Tax on certain cars and Corvettes were one of those cars.

If the Statute of Limitations has not expired, Have a lawyer go after them. State pays lawyer fees...you get your money back.

 

Next time pick a track car that qualifies for the antique plates to screw the State.

The state law was rigged like that to get around the lower fees compared to other states.  Suing over your tax rate? That won't end well. 

 

Anyway, I got my tribal citizenship so I pay those fees now instead.

My cars are $84/year in Alberta. I'm not sure if they charge more for other classes of vehicles such as trucks.

Alberta does charge more, at least for commercial plates, based on the vehicles weight rating.

I thought they might. Any idea if they typically consider a half ton a commercial vehicle?

I don't know for sure, but I think 1500/2500/3500 trucks can be either personal or commercial, it's up to you to select which it is, and there probably is some cutoff a little higher GVWR than 3500's have.
