I don't notice taxes being unusually high here. And my vehicle registration fees go down each year. I've lived in California, Kansas, and Texas (other than CO) and I think TX was cheaper for vehicle registration, but CO is similar to KS and CA in that aspect.

Any state that has dirt cheap vehicle registration fees will get you somewhere else. The roads don't pave themselves and you can't get something for nothing.

@ wanttomoveeast - Thank you for writing that they are tons of interracial couples in Denver. I'm black and my husband is white. I have three children,girl 13, and 2 boys ages 5 and 6. I've been reading various threads from CO and VA. Lakewood, CO seems more affordable than outside Quantico, VA.

I have owned four new cars in this state and cost to register decreased every year.

[SIZE=4]What I said is correct. It depends on which county you live in Colorado if your license cost decrease before vehicle is 10 years old. In Denver county, Aurora, Arapaho county and suburbs around Denver your license will be very high and will not go down until your vehicle is 10 years old.
When we lived in Colorado we lived in Elbert county and did decrease every year but were still very high. Our 5th wheel license were $1,300 after it was a year old. When new it was over $3.000. Our truck was $900 first year and almost $800 the second year.
I paid over $ 400 a year for license renewal on a 8 year old SUV in Aurora CO which was in Arapaho county,

The above is incorrect. In Denver:

The ownership tax rate is based on the age of the vehicle from the date of manufacture. The ownership tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value by the tax rate. (See Example #2 below)
Vehicle Age Tax Rate
1 year 2.10%
2 year 1.50%
3 year 1.20%
4th year .90%
5-9th year .45%
10th year and older Flat fee of $3.00

Link to the Denvergov.org website:
Fees and Sales Tax

Just renewed the plates on my car and while the fee is pretty high compared to some states it did go down and heck my property taxes are much too low. People from TX and the east coast and even some of the surrounding counties are shocked at how little we pay in property taxes and we get free trash removal to boot!

I have an 08 Prius and it was a little over $300 the first year, then dropped to the 200s the second year, and I live in Denver County. I think it went up a little this year due to the state increase, but still not as much as it originally was.

Haha. It's less vanilla than Boston, Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, and a lot of other cities. Why do you think it's vanilla? But yeah, if you lived in a white area of the city (central and south side) then you would probably think such a thing.

Thanks - I'm now not wanting to move east but more wanting to move to another part of Denver. LOL

I stand by what I said, I'm generally happy with the people here in Denver.
