Question about registering a leased vehicle. My minivan is leased. So since the registration fee is based on the "value" of the vehicle - what value do they used for a leased vehicle? The "purchase" price or the actual leased price? That's important since my leased price is 50% of the "purchase" price. We're talking a difference of $20,000 for the "value" of the car.
The "assessed valuation" is 85% of MSRP. The "Ownership Tax" is based on that + age + purch. date. The Ownership Tax is only one portion of the total license cost. Boulder County has an on-line cost estimator @

Probably at least around $70--that is about the minimum for a vehicle registration these days. That doesn't include sales tax if that has not yet been paid, nor the one-time title fee for initial registration for the vehicle.

Default On-line Fee Calc

85% of MSRP is only part of the equation. Age of car + purchase date + weight also are factored in to what's called the Specific Ownership Tax, this actual Tax declines some each year. Added to the S. O Tax are other fees to make up the total yearly charge.

Take a look at this on-line calculator and you can see all the individual fees that add up. Your 2001 Audi with MSRP of $40000 (a guess on my part) + CWT of 30 came in at at $74.00 total. It's S O Tax was $3.00 FWIW, the total for a 2012 would be $688

Colorado's Ownership Tax is such a ripoff. Cars are not real estate! Sometimes I really hate it here for these fee reasons..

No, it's taxable personal property. If your undies are in a bunch about that, you could have lived in Colorado prior to about 1959. Up until then, just about ALL personal property was subject to property tax. Home furniture, appliances, dishes, pots, pans, jewelry, guns, knives, fur coats, livestock, etc.--even working dogs--were subject to property tax. Business personal property was and still is subject to property tax. Until not that many years ago, businesses were assessed property tax on their inventory as of January 1st, too. Since nobody bothers to study history anymore, they don't know that is the way things used to be in the "good old days."

In Connecticut, cars are taxed exactly the same as real estate. Same mill levy applies to current Kelly Blue Book value. So like CO's tax, it does decrease over the years.

And many states don't. I recently bought a used, but damn near new truck In Ohio cause it was so cheap it was worth going there to get it. I elected to get plates for it right away to drive back to colorado (didn't want temp tags, cops love to mess with people that have them)

The cost to register my 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 ( the MSRP was $32,000)?

$49.50. Flat rate, For ALL trucks. Cars? $39.50. For ALL cars. WTF COlorado?!
