Hello All,

Nothing as bad as RI. $37 per $1000 of NADA value for cars, MH, travel trailers, motorcycle etc - everything registered except boat (had a strong lobby - only a small registration fee every year). On top of 7% sales tax on our Interstate (AKA Penny) after the first year we paid property tax on Penny approx. $4600. It does go down every year but slowly. With all our toys our per year taxes is out of this world. Next year thinking about a new TV and cringing at the thought of additional taxes.

Additional info about RI : 6% state income tax, 7% sales tax, plus super high real estate taxes etc etc. Otherwise quite a lovely place to live. Great ocean beaches, within 1 hour of Cape Cod, mountain in NH two hours, of course Maine and the Canadian Provinces.

55Airlight,
Thanks for your input....BUT, I hardly think I was sniveling....just adding to the subject matter. Yes, it is high, considering I also paid a bundle in taxes as well.

sticker shock :( wow, just received my CA vehicle registration

never owned a pickup truck prior to buying my AS .... I had no clue the state would fleece me of so much money, can this be right ? $301.00 / year ?

seems like extortion money ..

I own a 2010 Tundra, with 150,000 miles, bought used .. and will drive no more than 6-9k a year ..

It's not very often Ontario looks good regarding government fees. Our Airstream cost $180 to register three years ago and it's a lifetime plate.

They get you one way or another.

Boat = $20 every 3 years
AS = $58 per year
Vehicle = $102 per year

PROPERTY TAX = roughly 3.3% of actual market value (higher percentage when using "assessed value", but that is another smoke and mirror tactic)

Peoples republic of Virginia, they will allow permanent tags purchased from DMV when you first get your AS, I think it was $150, and you don't have to pay or worry about that every year. So that is nice, but that is where it ends.
State inspection for the AS every year , I think is $16.
Counties hit you with the personal property tax every year in Virginia, says it is based on NADA values. Now that is annoying, you pay $800 + - every year on the AS. Then you have to pay personal property on your truck ( which they said the value went up last year) and car and Jeep, and motorcycle, and enclosed motorcycle trailer. Every year. Then they hit you with a $20 county decal 'Fee' for each, and they don't even send you the decal anymore!
Its like $70 a year for state tags on the truck, $52 for the car and $52 Jeep each year. $26 for the motorcycle. Insurance, state inspection for each vehicle and motorcycle. Good lord !

If you own a home you have 'Real estate taxes' !
Virginia State sales tax is 5% on top all that

I can't see me retiring .
To many people with their hand out taxing and 'fee-ing' the crap out
of me !

Man, I have to go to work now !
have a good one.

Michael, who loves paying his taxes because it's the patriotic thing to do.
Calling it sniveling, and infer her being unpatriotic? She paid her taxes, and is exercising her right to free speech and protest. Maybe if it were up to you we would still be an English colony. You know; happily pay your taxes without questioning if they are just.

For me, it's not about paying taxes. My father told me when I started working, at age 15 (OK, when that first "legal" paycheck was earned), "Thank God we live in a country where we have the privilege to pay taxes...and thank God we have the right to not pay one penny more than we need too."

That's patriotic, but somehow, between "crafty" legislation and waste, we are paying more than we need too. That is also patriotic. I guess the answer is to get involved when you can't stand it anymore.

Birth cert issued by a hospital is not a legal doc in some states. You need the paperwork where the birth was registered with the city or county. That's the way it is inFl to get a drivers license if they ask for it.

No, I got what THEY voted for. But to be truthful, there is not one fiscal conservative in the lot, and I am including the republicons as well as the democrats.

California politics is fun to watch from a safe distance. Unfortunately I'm standing on ground zero, and the bullseye is on my wallet.

And yeah, THEY voted these people in, over and over again. Thank God for decent weather and scenery so far.
