Wow! I just renewed my MH registration at noon today. Cost me $59.45 including tax. That's for the next 8 months. It expires every year at the end of December but since it sits in my yard I just leave it and renew in the springtime to save a bit. The whole year renewal would have been $88.67 with tax. When I bought it off the PO there was no sales tax to pay, however at a dealer tax would 5% on the difference paid. You guys need to complain more to the right people for changes.

Goodluck finding a dealer in Colorado that still accepts business from folks trying to use the LLC loophole aka TAX EVASION.. Man up pay your taxes at your primary residence, pay the plate fee's and stop screwing your state. Our roads depend on it!

That would be fine if they used it for roads, however it is siphoned off for every other thing the dingbats in the statehouse can dream up.

I wish Colorado would just go to a flat tax rate for every city, county, district, etc... Make it 6% across that state and set limits on the plate fees.. $2,500 max sounds good...

Here (Ca) you pay about 10% state, county, city tax on the purchase price (not MSRP) plus 0.65% for license fees on the purchase price. Then each year the license fee decreases based on a fixed amount of vehicle deprecation that the state determines. The actual deprecation of your RV doesn't matter.

So, if you are a good negotiator you pay a lot less in taxes and license fees than your neighbor who purchased the same RV for more money. The same applies for cars and SUVs, not sure about pick ups as I've never owned a pick up.

We are in the process of purchasing a 2009 Monaco in another State but have pre-registrated it in our home State (Alaska). Title, registration and taxe for two years $240.00! I am happy with that!

WY tags for my 17 year old HR Navigator are $1,130/year. They use MSRP for as long as you own the rig. Must be out of WY more than half the year to do the MT LLC thing, which we do. MT also has a "permanent" registration if the rig or car is over 10 years old. Pay once and never register it again as long as you own it. Saves us $1,600-$1,800/year. Sweet deal if you find a good coach and decide to keep it.

We had a '98 Santara, cost was $96,000. In 2000 the license was $2,400! Then WA voted in a referendum and the license fees went down to $30, but now they've added weight fees to it so it about as above.
The license fee going down was one of the reasons we could afford a new DSDP.

Don't even think about going the Montana LLC route if you're a CO resident, as CO is one of the states that is very proactive in going after taxes they feel are due to them.

WA has been doing that for at least 5 years. I have a redacted case where the couple was convicted of tax evasion using an LLC. At the time of conviction they owed some $25,000 and with penalties and interest I'm sure it's much higher now!

BUT, if you trade in your old vehicle at a dealers you only pay on the difference between the trade and new price. Even so it's over $18,000 on the new Dutch Star we're looking at.

In Mesa, AZ the taxes were $19K for our new RV. The Reg and Plates are $4500 per year. We retire in June and are taking up residence in South Dakota, it will be $500/yr for Reg and Plates.
