Registration fees include a license fee based on the weight of the vehicle and an ownership tax based on the age and taxable value of the vehicle. Ownership tax is calculated using the taxable value of the vehicle for the registration period. Taxable value is calculated with a percentage of the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. The percentage used on passenger vehicles is 85% and on cargo type vehicles 75%. Once the taxable value is established it remains on the ownership documents for the life of the vehicle.
The license fee that is based on the weight of the vehicle currently averages $75.00 per passenger vehicle and $90.00 for light truck vehicles. This figure must be added to the ownership tax calculation. The total of the two will be an estimate of the registration fees.
If you are interested in purchasing the specialty plates please add an additional one time $50.00 fee to the license fee estimate.
