Jeep Registration

Just had to pay my Jeep's registration for Nebraska. It was $526.50 for a 1 year old Unlimited Rubicon. What is everyone else paying? Seems a bit high.

my 2013 jku was $378 and change and my 14 jkur was $415 in Montana

No sales tax at all in Montana so they get us in other ways. Property tax is high too as is state income tax.

I still would not want to live anywhere else.

I don't pay my bills anymore, at least for my business, so I'm guessing that the Wrangler was around $75 for 2 years. I like the 2 year option. I also like claiming my Jeep as a business expense.

(I don't pay the bills since I hired a manager for the store, not because I don't pay bills.)

It's around $40 for a 2 year here but have to pay sales tax when you buy it and personal property tax every year.

Sales tax if you sell something is the difference in the two items. So on the jeep had to pay sales tax on $9000 so was almost $800.

Personal property tax is hard to say since they put everything together. I paid $1200 last year for a 2012 Dodge Ram, 2012 VW CC, 2011 Harley and a 07 Cargo trailer. They all get their money somehow.

Like above I right off my jeep as a business expense.

Nebraska is so screwed up. Nebraska has 5%sales tax, but cities add on their sales tax. the total sales tax where I live is 7%. Check this out...I live in Kearney Ne and say I bought a vehicle in Lincoln. I have to pay the sales tax back in Kearney. In a way it's good because the tax isn't added to your bank note, but that's a ton of money you have to come up with (besides the down payment on the vehicle). Income tax here is nuts also. March 26th is the end of my time in title requirements at my job. We are already looking to move to another state. I have no idea why my registration is so high. All I know is that Nebraska sucks. Can't wait to move.

In NY we pay taxes up front (8.0% in my county, at time of purchase). My biannual vehicle reg fee is $55 + tax.

If I remember correctly, it was approx $140 for 4 years on a new 2013 JKUR in Oregon. That includes a themed plate and a county specific tax for a bridge that is being replaced. No sales tax here.

Wow, this is an interesting thread. I see there's quite a difference between the states.

Here is Arizona they go by the vehicle's value/age. My '07 JKU is something around $200 a year but my '43 Willys is only $20.

To go along with that, I pay an extra $50 for the JKU ($25 for specialty plate and $25 to personalize it) and $25 for the Willys' historic vehicle plate.

They get you coming and going.

In Oregon my 14 JKUR cost $86 for 4 years with no special plate (they are a rip off here) and $86 for a 2 yr tag after that. You can only get a 4 year tag on a brand new vehicle. 2 yr tags every time you re register

Just got my renewal for my 2013 JK. $258 for one year. I live in Ca so I expect this. If it wasn't for Schwarzenneger reducing the costs 5 years ago I would still be paying aroung $450 plus.

Sales tax, property tax, breathing fresh air tax you name it. Our roads still suck!

In September of last year my fee for the 2014 registration was $966 here in Neosho county, KS. Includes all registration fees and annual personal property taxes based on $29,000.00 tax valuation for the '14 JKUR at that time. Valuation goes down slightly for each of the next few years. After about 10 years this could be under $500. This is aside from our 8.4% sales tax paid up front at the time of purchase.

I would move, lol. In Texas, sales tax is 6.25 percent of trade difference plus about 60 a year for registration. Don't feel so bad now after reading some of these.

It's dependent on the value of your Jeep and the state you live in. I'm surprised that it is that high Nebraska. Are taxes high in general there?

It's also an easy fee to increase to make up for other deficits in some states because it is not a tax so it doesn't required any legislation approval.

In Maine my 13' was $980+.....the excise tax is .024 x MSRP then you have a plate fee and a registration fee.....on top of that you also pay the 5.5% sales tax too when you buy it. The second year the excise drops to .0175 X MSRP...third year...0135...and it keeps going down until you hit an all time low of .004X MSRP.



It's funny the state wants people to get their old cars off the road but you buy a new one and it's going to be $1k to register it....who knows where all this money actually goes. I've owned quite a few new vehicles and could almost buy another in just the excise taxes I've been robbed up here.

I paid $982 in Broomfield, CO for my 2014 JKU. The 4 year old car that I traded in was at $165 for renewal, so it was quite the shock to my bank account.

I used to live in South Dakota where it was $35 no matter what car you owned. Ahhhh, those were the days.

I can't believe some of these prices. I was always told Ca was the worst for fines, taxes etc. I will never move to Kansas,Maine or Colorado.
