License Plates

Ok...I went to purchase our tag for the trailer we bought last week. Now the tag is only for a month beings we renew in Sept. Just that months tag was 35.00 and the lady said that the tag we have to buy in Sept will be anywhere around 350.00-450.00!!! Does that sound right? We already paid taxes on it being we bought it from a dealership. I just cant believe its that expensive to tag those things! I do know 1st full year will be a little more expensive but she said itll be like that every year! I drive a 2012 accord and only paid 130.00 for a year and that was the first tag. Lol im just appalled by those numbers!

We have a permanent license - it is good for as long as we own the trailer. We paid for a personalized plate and it was $200. Keep in mind this is for a 41 foot 5th wheel with a 14k pound dry weight. This is a one time fee that we gladly paid and are done with tags. One of the nice parts of living in Montana - at least for now.

Sounds like AmaWill got taken to the cleaners. Are you sure it was not just taxes of some kind?

Thank you for this link! I am going to print it off and take it when we go back in Sept. I understand 200.00 or so for 1st tag so anything I can get to make them show me where all that money is going compared to something from the states website is very helpful! I just want an explanation! And she couldnt or wouldn't give me one. And im one of those that has no patience with people that won't explain something or make it right and I start causing scenes and such! Lol I just took that today and the hubby is gonna go back so he can do the talking since he handles those situations better than I.
