What are your DMV fees?
« on: September 13, 2019, 10:09:17 PM »
Just got my first renewal notice which is due in November.  For that tiny sticker and a new registration card they want $220! :003:  What is everyone else paying?

In the US it varies by state for what taxes/fees are collected.

Here in South Carolina we pay sales tax (5% of sales price, but capped at $500 max) at the time of purchase.

We then have to pay annual property tax.  Mine was $213 this year, but it decreases each year based on the vehicle value.  For comparison, my 97 Shadow 1100 and 01 KTM 200 are $16/year (which is the minimum fee).

Then we have registration, which is $10 every 2 years for motorcycles.

Also add in vehicle insurance, which of course can vary wildly based on your address, age, driving record, coverage limits, etc.
My insurance is about $500/year.

My insurance is about $900/year (and likely will go up...), but here in WA there's no property tax, just the initial sales tax (uncapped, 8.4%, depending on county) and a, supposedly, $30 tab, which in reality is $30 plus various additions. WA Supreme Court this week spanked another county's transit for wrongly vehicle values that they use there.

The break down here is, $138 for registration, $60 for license fees which can be an income tax deduction and $22 for the county/district fee.  No property tax as only real property (home) for example is taxed as property.

My renewal next year will be about $15. I was pissed that it cost me $52 for a new plate when I bought it last month.

Here in Ontario it varies from Northern Ontario to the south where I live. Cars the sticker each year (currently) is 120.00 for cars/light passenger trucks, motorcycles it was last time 48.00 but is going up and normally is about half what cars/trucks are again in Southern Ontario..they get a bit of a break in the north. We also pay higher (IMO) insurance premiums on motorcycles given the 6 or less months of use! It's different across Canada too some pay more while others a lot less...and it's not based on risk nor population either!
