No tax in Florida. Just a tag.

If you have your vehicle registered in Va and have "T" tags on you truck, you get no break on taxes, It is considered a work vehicle. I have a f250 diesel and I run regular car plates, and get a pretty good tax relief. The weight limits change, but I have never been stopped and put on the scales. The weight police here are more concerned about commercial vehicle, logging trucks that are WAY over loaded. There are a lot of f250's running passenger plates in Va. The taxes are still to much .

In NY. Truck plates are 125 for two years. Car is about 100 for two years. RV is about 90 per year. Have many relatives in Florida and after comparing everything paid in both states it comes out really close. States get their funds in many ways and what one pays for vehicle tax another pays in income tax. Interesting info so far but not to surprising.

Hmmm, I think 38 of 50 states collect income taxes on retirement benefits to one extent or another.

According to 2014 estimates by US Census bureau, Michigan is about 31st in taxes collected per person. Could be A LOT worse.

We're over on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We bought a 2016 Ford F250 Diesel 4WD late last year. Our Personal Property taxes are $1340.70 this year after the tax relief. Should gradually decrease each year. Our assessed value rate here for PP is $3.72 per $100. The truck we replaced was a 2005 Ford F250 Diesel, also a 4WD but it was also "Off Road" which meant it had steel plates underneath, making it heavier and throwing it into the commercial class so it did not qualify for any tax relief. We tried several times to argue the case that the truck was not being used commercially, but the tax relief is based on the weight of the truck and they look at the paperwork and the weight is the weight. I've seen trucks like our old one with regular tags and wandered how they got away with it. Must know someone in DMV. I don't have handy what we were paying for the old truck, but I don't think it was that much less than the new one and it won't be many years before the new one will be less than the old one.
What we pay for our 2015 Cedar Creek alone is $1000 more than what we pay for Real Estate taxes on our house and acre of land. Our Real Estate tax is .61 per $100 in our tax district. At least they started splitting the amount due making half due in June and half due in December.

I have a 2015 Chevrolet 3500HD 6.0 SRW. In Virginia, I pay over $2,400.00 per year for personal property tax for this truck. I think this is ridiculous.

Where are you, what is your tow vehicle and what do you pay?

Wow. That's amazing. How awful.

Here in NC, my 2015 F350 renewal just came in. Tags are $139. Property tax is $313.71 ($277.57 for the county and $36.14 for "fire tax").

Do you live up near DC in a "high dollar" county? Like Alexandria or something similar?

Personal Property Tax on vehicles

In Maryland, no personal property tax on vehicles or RV. There is a tag fee for each, but minimum.

NM taxes aren't low

  1. Here in NM we pay personal property tax when you transfer the vehicle. The one time hit is 3% of the purchase price. People always ask me to say I sold the vehicle for less. It's funny how the same people who vote the money grubbing politicians in are the ones who cheat on their taxes. My real estate tax is $3400 a year, more than the mortgage on my first house. Registration is based on weight, not value, and is pretty reasonable.

36 to register my 5th wheel
25 plus 15% tax to inspect them each.
And last year our road was voted the second worst road in the Atlantic Provinces.
Our sales tax across the board is 15%
We give our money to the refinery owners.

The cost of everything in Canada appears higher than in the USA except for this BUT wait
Someone in Government will figure this one out as well

NH personal tax on luxury items i believe is a reducing scale older. = less tax $
