tag prices

In Indiana my 22' 67 safari was about $25 per year. Will be interested to know about Fla, or Ga rates.

For the 1976 Airstream, I pay $76/year for plates. In Georgia, you pay taxes each year based on the value of the vehicle. For my 2000 Excursion, its about $350.

You get a break when you first register a new vehicle - I just put plates on my "new" 1987 Airstream and only had to pay the $20 tag and title fee - I get a pass on the taxes until the tags expire next July.

Our MH in Florida is $55.00 per year, when we had a trailer it was less, but I do not know the exact cost. There is no additional tax other than the tag fee. But when you buy a new to you vehicle there is a "new plate" fee of 100-125 dollars unless you transfer a plate from another vehicle.

Here in the Granite State (New Hampshire) where we have no income taxes or sales taxes we do have tax on our vehicles.

Last year I paid $750 for a 2001 GMC Suburban and about $1,100 on the 2001 30Ft Excella.

No the plates are not made from Gold.

$16.75 for my last renewal on 6/17/02. It expires on 6/30/03. Truck is around $22.00-24.00 on yearly basis for plates and our county has no wheel tax as with some counties ($35-$50).

In California, as in some other states, trailers of a certain size -- mine's 15' overall -- qualify for Permanent Trailer Identification (PTI) plates. I think it was $7 and I've not paid a renewal fee in the 5 years since I got that plate. After a greater number of years, I think, I might be asked to renew the doggone thing, but otherwise -- NO ANNUAL FEE.

In Michigan RV trailers have permanent plates. Meaning you pay couple hundred bucks (e.g 2016 25' FC) when you register it then after that, as long as you own it, there is zero dollars spent on annual renewals ( there are no annual renewals).

I am sure you are all aware that each and every state will get their tax money from you one way or the other. Soon or later we will all pay about the same percentage of our incomes/net worth in taxes. In Washington we used to pay license fees based on the value of your vehicle. A new automobile would cost me in the $300 range. This would actually go down(but not much) after 5 years as the thing depreciated.

We had a taxpayer uprising and passed an initiative that made all licenses tabs worth $35. After a very short while, many small towns and cities were running out of money to run things so we saw the beginning of a creep back towards higher tabs. Now we have excise taxes levied by local jurisdictions and tabs are now up around $60 or even higher. We also have the highest gas taxes in the nation. Other states that have low fees for license tabs probably have higher property taxes, a state income tax, a local sales tax and on and on.

Our property taxes are not extreme and we don't have a state income tax. Don't want to make those wealthy guys pay...whoops, starting to rant.

Don't come to Colorado. Seriously don't. 2014 GMC Sierra plates were $776. 2014 25FC, sit down now, I'm warning ya. $1,004. Told you to sit down. Plate itself is $114/$59 Sierra/FC. The rest is Owners Tax (velorum), Road Fee and Bridge Fee. Owner's tax is a percentage. I just cringe when I think of someone with a Newmar Class A in the 1/2mil range.

The Owner's tax was supposed to be temporary for 5 years back in the Gov Ritter days. Yeah right.... Its a percentage of the price and slowly goes down over 10 years and then levels out but never, never, ever goes away.

In Missouri it's $11 annually.....but we all get hit by a personal property tax each year. It's much like a real estate tax where each governmental agency gets their cut. So for all intents my vehicles and Airstream are valued and then taxed on 1/3 of their assessed valuation. Usually NADA guides are used. We use an honor system each year to report the vehicles we own at year end. How they enforce you to declare is by checking your tax receipt when you renew your license plates. If your vehicle isn't listed on the personal property tax receipt, you can't get plates. Technically as the vehicles age, your tax is reduced since the vehicles depreciate.

Texas plates are weight based. Trailer was about $65 plus the newly required annual inspection of $14.50.
Truck and cars about the same $60-75 range. Not bad, don't have to pay value tax. No state income tax either. We still have Blue Laws on the books though. No buying adult beverages before noon on Sunday's at the grocery store. No complaints.
