If you are a permanent resident of the state you have to register the car here. I am pretty sure that you can get the difference in registration refunded from your existing state when you relinquish the registration, but you'll have to look that up in your individual state.

Plates in Texas are cheaper but property taxes are what is going way high. As been said, the state is going to get the money SOMEHOW!!

Very well stated, Rogarven.

Some states have LOW Registration while they have HIGH Property and/or Personal Taxes. The same applies to State Income Taxes vs other forms of GOTCHA.

Bottom line . . . all states need a minimum income to survive.

I'm not saying that it's outrageously expensive to live here, I just disagree when people say how cheap it is.
Yeah, I kinda of agree with you. I don't really think of Arizona as a cheap place to live. You can definitely find cheaper places to live like Dallas for example. Everything is relative. A lot of people move here from the California, Illinois and Michigan, and relative those states, it can be cheaper here. But yeah, I don't think of AZ is the cheapest place to live either.

Pretty much Arizona Motor Vehicles registration fees are par with those of Montana. Just got my renewal notice in Montana for a 2005 BMW X5: $246.48 Last year the same car was in the $320 ballpark. My 2007 911 Turbo was $796 for 2010 and the same car in Arizona is more than $1k. Reason why I am in the Arizona forum is because my wife and daughter live in Queen Creek and I will follow soon... Bottom line, compared to New Jersey's $79 registration both MT and AZ DMV fees are whacked, but again, New Jersey sucked us dry with the property and income taxes.
