Ryan, some things are for the common good. My wife and I have paid at least $100k in property taxes over the 35+ years we've been homeowners, and about half of that goes to and went for public schools. Having opted to not have a family, we're not griping, not one bit, about kids getting an education, including yours, even if it is partly on our dime - it's for the good of the nation that we do this. People who don't drive still pay some taxes to support the road system and the Police, Fire, and EMS that come when called to an accident site, especially if these costs are paid for from general funds. Those first responders would come to our homes if needed there, but so far that has only happened for me in one minor police case, but I don't thing twice about having paid the taxes to have those fine folks on payroll, well trained and equipped. There are many such examples. I hear you about the fees, and IMO that's partly due to TABOR and the need of elected officials to find ways around TABOR to fund critical items.

Digging this thread up...

I just recently became a resident here (about 60 days ago) and I need to register our cars here.

I own the following;

1. 2012 Ford F150 FX4
2. 2008 Honda Ridgeline
3. 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlmited

What am I'm looking to spend on registering all of these? It doesn't sound cheap. I'm coming from Oklahoma where everything is VERY cheap and limited on the taxes. It costs me about $104 to register my truck there.

Thanks!

You can get an estimate using this calculator. It is from Boulder County, but all CO countys are the same. Vehicle licenses are handled by the countys. Drivers licenses by the State.

Calculate First Registration Fee

Just registered/transfered registration from out of state a week ago here in Colorado. For a 1999 pickup, license plates, title, vehicle registration, and driver's license card ran me a total of $111.54.

I ran the estimator for my two vehicles since I'll be registering for the first time this September and was pleasantly surprised. My 2007 SUV & 2010 pickup truck came in at $211 & $263 respectively. Still a lot more than PA ($36) but far lower than I expected after hearing some of the horror stories.

I suspect you're having trouble with the Purchase date. Do not use the actual date. Use something like the day before you would be doing the actual re-registration in CO.

FYI, the calc is really designed for New purchases in-state, but does give a good estimate for re-register from out of state. Just adjust the dates.

Also FYI, the Ownership Tax portion of total charge is Deductible on Fed tax IF you itemize your deductions on Sched A.

My ford f150 2012 was $709. My 2005 jeep wrangler rubicon unlimited was $1009 but I bought it out of state and it was sales tax as well as property tax.
