I know most of you guys will probably not know the answer to my question but can anyone tell me how much money I can expect to shell out to register a 2005 Nissan Altima SE in Hamiltion County, Ohio (Cincinnati)?

Around 50 bucks, unless it's gone up considerably over the past couple years.

I forgot to say that I am transferring my vehicle from another state so it seems like it would have to be a lot more than 50 bucks. I know with a lot of other states, you end up spending big bucks when registering your vehicle the first time from another state. I remember transferring a vehicle to Tennessee and I ended up spending like 570 dollars because I had to pay sales tax to the state of Tennessee on my vehicle.

Well, you'll have to transfer your title, and that'll cost you.

First you'll need an out-of-state inspection. That used to be free, but now it's $5 or so. You can do that at a car dealer, who will check the odometer and make sure the car has four wheels (I am not kidding!), then fill out a form for you to take to the title office.

Then you transfer your title, then get your plates and registration.

Can't help you with the sales tax, but I don't think it applies when transferring a car title from out of state; you've already paid sales tax on it when you bought it in the other state. But when I transferred my title etc., my car was eight years old and wasn't worth anything anyway! LOL

This all involves a lot of running around. Good luck.

We just moved from out of state and registered our vehicle in Warren County. Our previous state's yearly registration would have been around $225 for this vehicle (2003 Trailblazer). It cost us $8.50 for the title change, $3.50 for the inspection, which was performed at the Warren County license office, and $47 for the registration. You shouldn't have any high fees coming in from another state, unless Hamilton county is way different than Warren county.

Thanks kelcolo. Yeah, I've heard from others that vehicle registration is pretty cheap and painless compared to a lot of other states and Ohio doesn't have an annual property tax.

Ohio counties do have property tax on real estate... so not sure what you're referring to there...

but the cars are way cheaper. We registered 2 vehicles (came from MI), and like Keloco, it was just over $100 for the two. In MI it would have cost nearly $250 for renewing my tags.

I was talking about property tax on vehicles. $250 for two cars is cheap or at least compared to what I'm used to becuase last year I had to pay $306 worth of property taxes on my Altima plus the $35 renewal fee and the county tax which I think was around $135.

I feel like I'm repeating myself, but ...

There is no personal property tax on cars in Ohio. Other than the fees to get an Ohio title for your car, you will pay only a registration fee, which varies from county to county depending on local permissive taxes, and in Hamilton County, the fee to register a passenger car will run around $50 give or take a few bucks.
