Am I reading this correctly?

When I move to Colorado Springs I'll have 90-days to register my car. At that time I'll have to pay sales tax on my 100% owned vehicles? What if I trade in my car within that 90-day window? Would I then just be paying tax on the new car? How much and how often are registration renewals?


Thanks!

You will not pay Sales tax on owned cars brought into CO. Only new title and registration costs. Costs for El Paso County are explained here. Taxes and Fees
Also there is an on-line estimator at
El Paso County, Colorado

Registration costs are annual, and decrease a little each year as the SOT is based on how old the car is.
Info for new residents is here: New Resident Requirements

Don't forget your VIN verification! It's a thing I never had to do in any other state. But you can get it done at any dealer, and at a variety of other places...and the dealer I went to didn't charge me a dime for it. Just brought my title and my DL and the vehicle and we got it squared away.

I did that on one lunch break, it only took a few minutes.
On my next day's lunch break, I went and registered my car. It also only took a few minutes (15-20) at the Powers Blvd location. I have an 02 Caravan and it cost ballpark $89 if I remember correctly.
On my next day's break I went and got my new license. Also took like 20 minutes max.

I found this process to be far less painful than I'd built it up in my mind and much less so than other states have put me through.

Thanks for the advice guys. That's the second time I've heard it's pretty painless, so that's encouraging.

I think this is cool - they have a website that publishes the current wait times at the DMV offices. Click on an office and you can see the wait for for the particular type of thing you are there for.

Also, and you may already be aware, but El Paso county has no requirement for emissions testing. Some counties in CO do but we don't at this point in time.

Acutally, there are very few states that do not require a VIN inspection for vehicles that have been registered in another state and are being titled and registered in the new state of residence of the vehicle owner. The only usual exception is a new vehicle that has never been registered elsewhere that has a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO).

Unless you have a diesel truck, and live in the city limits.
