I'm sure your right; currently, I paid a total of $1,273 this year; if the vehicle fee increase goes into effect that has been slated, I would pay approximately $2,291. And we also pay an additional smog fee in our county of $65... I have a vehicle that I drive less than 500 miles per year and will have to pay $515 per year to be able to drive it around the block, not including the cost of full-coverage insurance.

It all seemed worth it until June of 2006; since then, real estate home prices in my area have dropped $275k, and stock and mutual fund portfolios have lost 50%, so I do understand staying until retirement... mine just got put off 'a little while longer'.

Do tell; what are your annual fees in SD on vehicles and RV's?

I just looked up our trailer, cars and MH. Collectively, Texas is cheaper than SD, at least for us. I just paid the MH ($145) and the trailer ($45).

Of course, no one from CA wants to come and live here either. It's really hot and uncomfortable in the summer time.

Will happen about the same time you can see a windmill from Ted's house in MA


BTW- Registration this year for my 07 Neptune will be approx $1770 to the town and about $100 to the state.

Why don't you people in CA do what we did in Washington a few years ago? Put a Referendum on the ballot to lower them. I seem to remember that when I was stationed in CA, the legislature couldn't pass any laws as it would anger someone and they might not get reelected, so eveyrthing was on propositions on the ballot.

OK...its now a done deal...an a SAD day for retired and out of work Californian's. Our taxes just got raised to the highest in the nation. An we could do nothing to stop this insanity. My pocket has been successfully picked of my money to pay for a dysfunctional state government. I how will have less money to spend on products and services.

Next I will be looking forward to a future proposal to rollback our taxes with a "Prop 13" style proposition. Time for the taxpayer to take back our money with a TAXPAYER REVOLT.

Sounds like a plan to me Steve. It's time politicians re-learned that citizens run this country.

But, your forgetting the art of compromise: Maldonado was able to strip out a 12 cent-a-gallon gas tax... of course, that equates to something like $90-$100 a year for me, but we get to live with the doubling of DMV fees, which equates to an increase of approximately $900 a year for me... woohoo. Sounds like a great 'compromise' for the average California driver. (In fairness, it's the MH that takes the biggest DMV fee increase.)

If you look at the current demographics of California and where those numbers are headed, not likely you'll see a taxpayer revolt, as that isn't where the money is coming from, but rather where it's going... I'm not criticizing, just an observation: watching the San Francisco news this morning and there was a story of the protesting of the slash in the education budget. The story was done outside a school with the elementary students holding up protest signs; almost all the signs held up for the camera were written in Spanish, not English. Just an observation...

On the other hand, property taxes in Oregon are a LOT higher than the property taxes in CA.

Richard,
It cost you almost $2300 per year for you to register/license a 2005 Winnebago in Califronia.....OMG! I was upset with a fee of $136 for my 1996 Vectra, I think I will keep a low profile and watch our state legislators so they don't get any lofty ideas. Good luck to RV owners in California.

Ron

The problem in CA is that their government spends too much money and the problem will not be fixed until they start living like we have too and that is within their means. When we run out of money we stop buying, not demand more money from our boss.

The biggest problems us folks in California have is we keep on reelecting the same old tax grabbers back in to office.

Don't let the state of California catch you with a Montana LLC or living in the state with out of state registration.

Yea my tax on my coach is going to double too.
