Personal Property Tax - What do you pay?

I am interested to know what other members all over the country pay for personal property tax on their tow vehicles, if your state/county charges a tax.

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?

Bruce

No personal property tax in Texas, My plates for my 2015 2500 duramax runs about $74.00 each year. That's it.

Here in Rhode Island..
My 2006 Toyota Tundra with 157k mi. I am paying $389 this year.
My 2011 RAM 1500 with 40k mi I am paying $498 this year.

We used to have a 10-year limit that the state would continue to charge property tax, but they needed more money a few years back and did away with that.
So no matter how old your vehicle is and no matter what condition it is in, if it is registered here in RI you will be paying tax on it.
And by the way, the state places the value on your vehicle, they dont use KBB or any other normal source for vehicle values.
My old 93 F150 with 147mi the state was valuing that truck for tax purposes at $6400 (just 4-years ago).. that was when I sold it and bought the RAM 1500 because I was paying more in taxes than the vehicle was worth.

This is not personal property tax, but my trailer tags were $30 for a permanent tag. I don't remember my PP taxes, but it isn't much. Maybe $50 a year. Insurance $120 year. I spend more than that for one upgrade I saw on here.

The first trailer I registered in AR.. the lady said do you want a permanent tag? I was like...MMMMM. How much? She said $20 Hey throw it on me. I was used to an annual in Texas being $50-60.

In South Carolina, you might expect to pay $1,200 on the truck but the real kicker was the Fifth Wheel, over $2,000. We quickly decided to buy a lot in a really nice beach resort style RV Park and transfer tags.After all expenses for the lot, we save over $500 a year over paying taxes.Some states are different on primary resident requirements, if too restrictive, a safeguard might be paying $150 (FL fees) to form an LLC, making your lot a business.

Wow... I'd never even heard of such a thing before. In Ottawa, Ontario, Canada we pay property tax on our house, but that's it.

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

Arkansas pays P.Prop Tax once a year on all personal property, NOT solely on the vehicle at time of purchase.

I own a bunch of 'stuff'........big boat, little boat, Side by Side ATV, 16' ATV trailer, Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer, 2 Pickup Trucks, and a housefull of furniture......and I paid $909.00 July 1 for my annual P.Prop Tax bill.

No personal property tax here in Michigan, but feel lucky you don't live here.
2017 MB SUNSEEKER - sales tax $5,100
Plates $320
Insurance $1800
Sales tax on everything but groceries 6%
State income tax 4.35%
State income tax on all pension income over $40,000 is 4.35%

what do we get for it - lousy roads, fire departments that never lose a foundation, and a dictatorship style government. If they don't like the voters outcome on legisilation, the dictatorship just passes an identical piece and add a budget rider to it... NO MORE VOTING ON THAT LEGISLATION, cause now its a budget issue!!!!

Michigan is now ranked about 5th in the worst state to live in catagory.
