BUT we pay higher gas taxes than many states..I can go 12 miles over the line into Ohio and save nearly 50c a gallon!
Your alcohol taxes aren't cheap either. Learned that a few years back when we made a visit to the Philadelphia area and ended up making a trip across the bridge to restock.

Purchased a 2007 Class C in 2014. In Ga, we pay the taxes now at purchase. Just received our tax/tag bill for $20. Same as my 2012 Toyota Prius.

Yes, Colorado is also crazy expensive to register vehicles which includes any trailer and RV. We do have a sales tax but, then, there's this sneaky "owners tax" that we pay yearly when we get our tags. With the big RV's, it can be over $1,000. A few years ago, Colorado cracked down on a bunch of folks who bought $100K+ Class-A's but then they'd drive up to Montana and get a post office box and register in that state. (No owners tax there.)
I have a couple weeks left on my temp tags but expect to be shelling out around $600 for the first years tags....ow ow ow

Huh? Are you considered agricultural? My registration in Iowa is considerably more than your quote, both truck and trailer.

Sheesh... I want to move out of CA even more after reading these replays... I pay 4 bucks a gallon for 91 octane fuel, 10.25% sales tax and almost 40% income Tax. I won't even get into vehicle registration cost and property tax... RIDICULOUS... I'm just glad I have the family (5yr old,2yr old and the lovely DW) to burn marshmallows over the camp fire with. Somehow the cost of living disappears when we're drinking cocoa by the fire.

I get to drop $1,100 this year, $720 trailer tag, $220 car tag, $150 tag for the 13 year old truck, a motorcycle and utility trailer make up the rest.

I would have pulled the plug had I known, but I couldn't get anyone from the tag office on the phone.

In Virginia tags are a one time cost of $79.00. Never have to renew yearly permanent tags. Now the Town and county has personnel property tax on things like trailers, boats and cars. All based on the year of it and depreciates every year as it gets older.
