Huh? If your legal residence is WI, why register your vehicles in AZ ???
As Wisconsin-ites who have changed their legal residence to AZ, while the annual VLT (Vehicle License Tax) can be high -- especially on new vehicles -- there is a tad
bit of difference between AZ & WI state taxes:
AZ state taxes: 2.59 to 4.54%
WI state taxes: 4.6 to 7.75%
To compute AZ VLT (Excel makes it a lot easier):
- Take the original new MRSP and decrement this amount by 16.25% per year to the current year.
- Take 60% of that amount. Then divide it by 100
- Finally, multiply the remaining value by $2.89. That's your VLT tax.
It's killer on new vehicles, but on old not so bad.
