Default My PITA is gone for good!

Well the straw broke the camels back yesterday. I sold the monster from hell this evening to CarMax!! It's gone for good, some elses problem now!!

I got my Personal Porperty Tax bill in the mail yesterday. I dam near fell off my chair. It was over a grand for only 5 months of ownership.

I called the county tax office to get a reading on why was my vehicle valued at a price that I did not pay. The value is based on retail value as of January 1st of that model year. For example if the value of the vehicle is 60K on Janaury 1st and I bought it in July at 45K. The tax is based on that 60K not the 45K I bought at. The county does not care what you paid for it, just the value on January 1st.

There is another little factoid. "Truck" tags bring only issues and many of them! Because of the "Truck" tags I don't get the Personal Property Tax Relief that an automobile does. The relief is only meant for "Automobiles" not "Trucks". Changing the tags to "Automobile" tags may get you the tax relief. But,that's a big may get you! Once the county knows it's a "truck" they are on it like white on rice! I was so hosed!

Another one is; because it's a "truck" and it has "truck" tags, I get slamed again for the EZ pass. EZ pass conciders "Trucks" as commercial vehicles!! Hosed again! Ouch!!

Yet another one. Becasue it has "truck" tags, you may be subjected to HOA rules. Becasue "trucks" are concidered "Commercial" vehicles. And "commercial" vehicles are not allowed to be parked within the association property. Hosed yet again! Nasty grams out the ying-yang!

Yet another one. Ever see those signs that say "No Trucks" Yes, if you have those "truck" tags on they mean you as what your driving is concidered a "truck"! A truck is a truck is a truck and by no other name is a truck!! Hosed yet again!

Do I have buyers remorse? No, not at all! I got rid of one big headache! I was running through more blood pressure pills then diesel fuel! So when the truck went off to the back of the CarMax lot this evening I was jumping for joy! Gone is the biggest headache I've ever owned! Gone are the nasty grams that were left on my windshield telling me my vehicle was subject to towing! Gone are the EZ pass citations for not having the correct EZ pass, for which I called and they sent and coded the pass wrong! Gone is the shitty dealership that did not know a dam thing. Gone period!

I'm back to driving my 12 year old GM that has 455 air. That's paid for! Remote start - Kids go start the truck for dad so it's warm for me. A GPS that I can punch the screen and change while the truck is moving! Free radio vs. crappy customer service from sirius.

In the 5 months that I owned it I only put 500 miles on it. CarMax asked me why? I said.... It's a "Truck"!

What in the world is personal property tax? In Oregon we don't even have sales tax. My truck was registered for 4 years when I bought it and it is only $84 for every two years after that. Doesn't matter if it is a ram or civic. Some states just seem out of control!

I would move....we have "truck" tags here in Texas but it ain't nothing like you are describing. I can't say that I blame you for getting away from that rig! Wait are you sure you weren't driving a Peterbuilt?

No kidding, that is crazy! Just got my registration in the mail for my next two years and I was pleasantly surprised, $40! And that is based on the sticker price of my truck.

Missouri has Personal Property Tax, mine for this year on Blue was $217, they said she is valued at $4770

Registration was $83.50 for two years. Every state has some racket going on. My home state California taxes EVERYTHING!!!

Get use to it folks. This is what BIG GOVERNMENT does when they don't like something, they tax the heck out of it.

Every State is different. I've lived in VA before Hampton, VA Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk so I can sympathize with your personal property tax bill. When I moved back to MN they get you via the cost of the license plates. This year my license plates cost $416.75 to renew them so they get you either way you go. Your best bet is get out of the State of VA.

No personal property tax here, just yearly renew of tag. mine should run about $100 in June. They do get you when you register the vehicle, excise tax, tire disposal fee crap, ya a tax on tires that do not exixst, but you have to pay it. crazy.

As for the HOA thing, a lot of them are like that with the no trucks parked where they can be seen, a load of BS but those are the rules, so read the contract befroe you join the HOA.

Sorry to hear the OP sold his truck, really sucks.
