Wow... no PPT on vehicles here in Oklahoma. I pay $83.50 per year for the tags for my truck. You do pay a state sales tax on the vehicle when first purchased, that was around $1K. Same taxes apply to cars and pickups.

We also have no vehicle inspection laws. We used to, but the state gov't voted it off the books!

That is a horror story. I would have hoped better for a state like Virginia, but I guess its proximity to New York finally allowed it to catch the tax disease. Government, even sometimes at the more local level, seems totally out of control. It's become a money-eating monster with no lack of appetite. I hate these "occupy" idiots, because their base value system is about zero...but...it's probably getting to a point of some kind of revolution. I just hope that it can be done at the polls in the near future rather than in the streets and at the barrel of a gun. That may sound crazy, but in many critical areas government and the politicians involved have become unresponsive to the majority of the people.

On the truck issue in VA, is the "truck" category more impactive there because it's a 1-ton? Would your situation have some different elements if it was a 1/2 ton, putting the assessed value aside? On that towing issue, I'm guessing that's because it's a 1-ton? I've seen some parking issues in some cities that have regs like that...putting a 1-ton pickup in a commercial category. Our city had such a reg, but it was finally removed when it was realized how archaic that 50's reg was when a 1-ton vehicle actually was only a commercial vehicle. If you have a state or city that has such a law, it's usually based on an ancient reg. In "the old days", a 1-ton vehicle was often rather big and a bit of a safety hazard when parked on-street in residential or some other areas. Classifying a 1-ton pickup in that way today is totally ridiculous.

Texas is one of those states without a PP tax as named...no income tax either. Sales tax, though a PITA, may be about the fairest way to tax, and we have that. BLKSVT, here in Texas, aren't our pickup tags usually a few dollars lower than most automobile tags? My pickups/trucks have always had lower license plate fees than my cars. My wife's Chevy HHR could be classified as either, and at time of purchase the dealer suggested that we get "truck" plates. It saved about $20. I think in Texas we still look at pickups as a sacred category...LOL! That may change with a 1-ton, I don't know about that. My sales tax on my '12 1/2 ton Ram was about $280, and that's a one time tax at purchase.

Sorry to hear about your tax issues with the state of VA. I would also be looking for a house max to off that to as well. I know family, kids schools, jobs can be tough to move, but there is no way I could cope with that sort of stuff.

IL can be horrible but sales tax is a one time percentage of purchase price or estimated value, probably which ever is higher at the time of purchase & plates are graduated for weight. B truck (half ton) is typically around $120 per year.*I think*

Screw all that noise...seriously.


$00.00 after the purple heart.

Before the purple heart it was $75 a year, in the great state of TX.

My 2010 1500 cost me a little over 700 to register for the year....I almost cried....my last vehicle was a 2001 jeep and it was like 200 or less. Its also like 500+ for my 30 Ft Travel Trailer.

I live in PA and the only thing the gov. charges for my truck was the 6% sales tax when I bought it and $81 registration renewal fee every year. I guess I can't complain. But "personal property tax"? THAT IS GRADE A BS!

As for California, I think we should cut that state off altogether and swap it with Hawaii, then not call it part of the USA anymore...their regulations are ridiculous

As for the big government, I think that at some point there's going to be a new revolution, if "we the people" ever get smart enough to do anything about it.

I think in FL it is extremely cheap as well, but honestly don't remember what I paid...
