Excise Tax

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

In Massachusetts there is a thing called excise tax that is annual, and is based on your automobile. I just got my bills for this. Every state has their own ways to collect revenue and while this was new for me when I moved here I now expect that this will be a given in many places. The newer and more expensive the fee. Oh well..........

Thank you Paul. Property tyaxes are relatively low here in MA compared to NJ. Other taxes are high here too.      Sheila

I don't really know how California breaks down its licensing tax for registration but I know there are several parts to it and only one part is tax deductible.

In Hawaii, it is based on your county. Each island has its own county. Because I bought my car in Maui, I paid a higher tax. When I registered it in Hawaii County, that fee dropped by more than 50%.

Hello Sheila- - -in California we have "fees" to confuse people who might otherwise dislike the word "taxes".  I doubt many believe there is any "confusion".

I have to agree with Michael.  California taxes ya to death, but they label it as something else, to try and "soften" the sting.  Our gas tax is the second highest in the nation.

Morning Sheila

In Arkansas it's called personal property tax.  I can remember when my parents paid a poll tax so they could vote.  Thankfully, that is long gone
