What is a vehicle tax and town mill rate?  Must be a CT thing?

Surprisingly NY doesn't have a vehicle tax, just 10,000 other taxes

Huh? I guess $0. I buy a tag every year from the state, is that not enough?

We buy tags every 2 years too. Along with emission testing every two years.

Doesn't look like this is a very common thing nationally.  Doesn't exist in Oregon.

This is bullshit I had no fucking idea other states didn't do this.

Every town in CT has different mill rates.

In PA we register our vehicle every year for ~$36.  We get our vehicles inspected every year as well.  The inspection includes emissions testing if you drive over 5,000 miles annually.

I mean, here in IL we have to buy a vehicle sticker(with some towns having exceptions) and we have to buy our plate stickers yearly, but my town doesn't have some sort of vehicle tax.

I hadn't heard of "mill" rates til now. We do have vehicle/personal property taxes here in NC. 2000 GTP was $60 and a 2010 Charger was $301. Plus $28 for tag fees and $30 for annual inspections.

Not very relevant to thread but AFAIK in PA the emissions vary by locality (probably county level).  I personally don't have to get them at all.

Other than tags,Tn only taxes vehicles when they are sold, but some counties do have a wheel tax.

IL registration stickers are from $88 to $136 no matter what year your car is. Most counties and cities don't have emission testing either.

Just be happy we don't have safety inspections...

If my 89 Jeep Cherokee can pass emissions, anything can.

$99 for the license plate renewal, and I have never bought the town sticker. My town has since dropped it.

In Texas your car will have a registration sticker (renewed annually) and an inspection sticker (good for two years on a new vehicle, then renewed annually after that). The registration sticker is not based on the car's value, it is a flat fee paid to the county. It is about $60 or so. Inspection is about $15 for most counties, but $39 if you live in a county with emissions testing (think large cities where they have concern for air quality).

Holy shit I thought NC vehicle taxes were high. I think the most I've every paid was $50.00.  Not counting the registration fee which is $28 (I think).

To register my truck for two years it was around $160. My Wife's car was $90. Emissions is $20 every two years. All on top of the yearly taxes.

IIRC, my car registration is about $37 annually.  No millage on the car, or pollution testing.

In Alaska, Los Anchorage, vehicles are registered for two years, My truck was $160 two years ago with an IM certificate costing $25 so the total was $185.



This year I went to register it, IM has been discontinued, so I'm figuring $160, nope now it's $190




DMV math, you gotta love it.

A 'Mill' is a tenth of a cent. It is only commonly used when paying taxes and buying gas. You might pay three dollars, Fifty nine cents and nine mills for a gallon, for example.

Ledyard CTs mill rate is 27.93 so the tax on my 2008 pickup is $459.. I just renewed my registration for $186.40 plus the $20 for emissions a couple of months ago.. Plus tax on gas is what, 23 or 24 cents a gallon here in CT?

In Florida we pay the state annually, My truck is 71.15 and my wife's mustang is 57.65.  They used to be much lower.  We do not have inspections or emissions testing.

we pay here based on the GVW of the vehicle



my 1500 Truck cost $62 per year to register




and we have no state income tax but do pay more in propery tax.  For instance, a 100K home value gets you about $1200 per year on local city, county and school taxes in my county

Maine's vehicle annual excise tax is an annually decreasing (to a lower limit) percentage of MSRP, not even the real amount paid. A 10 year old vehicle runs between $120-200 in most cases. New cars over $1000. This on top of registration fees, plates, inspection. AAARRRGGGGHHHHHHHH

Nope, Maine too. Except all towns use the same taxation formula. Ours is higher though and based on MSRP.

Florida got rid of our 'smog testing' almost 10 years back.  Wasn't needed.

Registration/Tag went from $45 to $75 a few years back when the economy tanked, on my '94 Montero that's worth about $1000, lol.

It's stil pretty cheap.  Property taxes are high, but we're not a 'tax to death' State.

Ah, so its 'free' until they tell you (for free) that you need to replace your entire exhaust system to pass the test.
