Texas state vehicle tax is 6.25%. License plate fees determined by the vehicle(s) registered. Counties impose a county road & bridge fee and a title fee, under $20 each IIRC. I'm not familiar with Polk County so there may be additional small fees. You will need a bill of sale receipt or they will use an assumptive value. Also if your receipt value is under the assumptive value they will use the higher value. For precise numbers you can call the Polk County Tax Assessor and ask for the motor vehicle department.
