How much does your DMV gouge you for tags?

I was curious how much you actually end up paying for tags when you register your car. Delaware is 10.75% plus $200. 4.75% of the purchase price is a sales tax that they call a fee but that it's on top of a 6% state income tax. On a 35K SS the breakdown would be;
$2,100.00 Income tax
$1,662.50 Sales tax
$ 200.00 Tags
-------------
$ 3,962.50
I know some of you have higher sales taxes but lower income taxes. Is this in line with other places?

Added: I guess I should have said What is your actual cost for tags from your state? Does your state charge both income and sales taxes on the money used to pay for the car and tags?

They charge you income tax when you buy a car?? Not sure how that is supposed to work. Florida charges sales tax and normal registration + tag fees (6% I think, and 40 ~ 100$ depending on car) Then they charge an Impact fee which is about $200.

The income taxes are nuts. I didn't even know till last week that some cities actually have an income tax!?! Not just states?

No wonder everyone is moving to Florida and Texas?

Holy smokes! And what's an Impact fee, for the member from FL?

In OH, sales tax is 5% plus whatever your county wants to add on top of that. In mine it's 2%, so total of 7%. After reading your post, I won't feel as bad when it's time to renew tags. Here's my latest - and this is after a new increase:

Special Plate Fee: $0.00
State License Tax: $31.00
Local/County Tax: $20.00
Logo Price: $0.00
Service Fee: $3.50
Postage: $0.36
Charitable Donation: $0.00
TOTAL: $54.86

I think they charge something like an additional $3-5 for new plates, as opposed to just the sticker. The title filing fee from my dealer is $25.50. Of course, that's on top of their $250 "Document fee" which I realize is just a markup in disguise (but I'm thinking all OH dealerships probably charge it).

I'll be paying $3,000 sales tax and $440 for registration. Such is existence in present day California. Most of the sales tax will be recovered when I file next year's tax return.

We actually pay 6% to the state on all our income when we earn it (one of the highest) and we are supposed to have no sales tax but they charge a 4.75% tax on cars and claim it's not a tax but a fee based on the sales price. Isn't that a sales tax? They then brag that the states around us have a 6% sales tax on cars so our 4.75% is cheaper but they fail to mention they paid either 2% or no state income tax when they earned it while we paid 6%.
In other words I had to make $37,100 just to get the $35k for the car and $2100 state income tax on the money earned. Then pay them the other $1600 when you get the car.

No state income tax FTW!

Other taxes still FTL but oh well.

Here's the fees in FL...


Yearly registration - Automobiles, private use >3500lbs $44.60
Transferring a license plate from another vehicle $4.60
When a new metal license plate is issued $10.00
Initial Registration fee $100.00

I'll probably get a specialty tag which'll be another $25/yr (but that goes to the "cause").

That's pretty crazy, in Va sales tax is 3%. For my tags, I am getting a vanity plate (both for the background and the letters) and that still only sets me back $20. I cant imagine having to add another $4k to the cost of my car!

Hey Lectra....don't forget the gift that we keep giving in Virginia....personal property tax. Instead of a higher sales tax on vehicles, we get to contribute annually based on the vehicles value.

In North Carolina it's 3% Highway Use Tax (Sales tax), $40 for the title and $28 for the tag and validation sticker.

He's referring to the sales tax deduction if you buy a new car in 2009.

If he pays $3,000 in sales tax and falls in the 25% tax bracket he will get a maximum of $750 back (.25*$3,000).

You think thats bad. Check out the rates for California. Sales tax alone is like 8.5 - 9% That is bad and its quite a bit for the licensing.

Texas costs

1) Sales tax @ 6.5% of net sales price (cost of car less trade-in)
2) Documentary fee...$25-30.00 (legislature lets the dealer gig you for their processing time)
3) License tags - $58.80 + $5-10 depending upon what county you live in.
4) Personalized tag fee - $40-$75 depending upon if they are "plain" personalized plates or "special" plates.
5) State inspection fee - $23.75 (good for 2 yrs from date of arrival of car on dealer lot) + Emission test fee (certain counties only) - up to an additional $39.75.

My calculator is broken...but, in Dallas County, it will be more than enough...
