A couple of weeks ago we purchased the 2006 Casita Liberty Deluxe in Nevada. We live in Colorado so now I have to pay that ridiculous sales tax (8.1%) on the purchase price.

The problem is, I can't remember how much the plates cost back when I had my 2000 Freedom Casita and when I called the DOM to get an idea of costs, they said it could be around $180 for the plates. I was stunned.

Can any of you that live in Colorado, and have a Casita, share with me what your Casita year and model is and what your plates cost. They told me they do "comparables" in establishing the price. I didn't even pay that much for the Bigfoot plates.

Thanks,
Keith

Hey, K
I only had to pay the state portion of the tax when I purchased trailer and tv out of state, not county and city portions. May be different now, though, because the legislators we send to the Colorado Clown College do lots of crazy things.

Thanks for the input, George. I'm hoping that digbat I talked to on the phone, the other day, didn't know what she was talking about. I'm going to have to dig back in my files and see if I can find what I paid for the other 2 trailers.

Do you remember what you paid for your plates, this last time?

I guess not many had any info for me. I went ahead and got the title and liscence done yesterday and it was almost $900 for both. Plates alone were about $115. Just an FYI for y'all.

Just to let you know, the long arm of the tax police extends all over. We had to pay a similar county tax in Cook County (Chicago) for the trailers we purchased out of Cook County. The license is cheap ($18 per year), but the sales taxes were really high. Title was about $65.

Nothing is cheap anymore. I got a custom plate for my trailer... that's one plate: $53.00 + registration $121.50 = $174.50.... every TWO years.

Do other states charge registration by the FOOT like Oregon?

I've got PTI (permament trailer identification) plates on my Compact II when I licensed it in CA. It cost 20.00 the first time and only 10.00 every five years to renew. Trailer must be 16ft or less measured from hitch to rear body of trailer.

Hey Donna,

I asked, yesterday, how they came up with the Plate price for the Casita. She said they use the vehicle year, weight, and Tax Valuation. The TV they get from some data base somewhere. You know, sometimes I just get worn down with all this Bureaucratic BS and just give in a pay it. I guess thats what they count on.

It's more obvious every day, to me, that the vast majority of politicians couldn't care less about the little guy out here, Regardless of what they say. Our Colorado Legislators just approved raising the vehicle registration fees by over $125 over the next 3 years and have quietly raised the late fees by a factor of 10. Yet......they really care.

I've about had it.

OK, now I'm off the soap box for now.

In Virginia a Permanent Plate can be purchased for any trailer for a one time fee of 50 bucks and if you want it personalized it costs an additional one time fee of 10 bucks. But you also have to pay local yearly Personal Property Taxes which are not cheap. In South Dakota cost depends on how old the trailer or vehicle is. My 2005 Nissan Titan and 2007 Airstream cost around 150 bucks when I renewed last year and that included 24 bucks of Wheel Tax - 4 per wheel. But no Personal Property Taxes so I like it lot better there than Virginia! I'm a fulltimer by the way.

Renewal on my '99 was $46.49. My experience is that many eastern states base the fee on weight and western states favor fees based on the vehicle value. The western states being more expensive. Fifty states, fifty sets of laws.

In Missouri we pay Sales Tax when we first get and Title any vehicle to the tune of between 5-10 percent depending on your county.
We can however deduct the price we sell the former vehicle for that the new one replaces as long as it is within a 3 month window I think.

This of course may make for some creative sales receipts.....from what I hear?

Then we pay for plates every year or two for cars and three for trailers and of course we also pay yearly personal property tax.
Oh and we only get to renew each time after buying seperate Safety and Emissions inspections too!

I rarely pay less or near $1000.00 yearly but I do have several vehicles.

Many of my clients have home in Florida and title their vehicles there where they do not pay PPT.

It seems excessive to me.

Sounds like you need to move south, Keith. I bought my Casita in AZ last fall and it cost $204.35 for tax and registration when I got back to Silver City.

When you go in to register, take Jake with you. If they aren't cooperative, sic Jake on them.
