Question for other Colorado Piloteers: My temp permit expires shortly so I will be headed to my local DMV next week for my license plates. Anyone remember what they paid for ownership tax (and all the other add-ons)? I need to know it I need to get a second mortgage on my home before I go!!!

:2:

TIA,

My Costs

I didn't pay sales tax on my PILOT, because I bought it in Las Vegas, NV.

I did have to "pay the piper" when I registered it here in Colorado.

total came to a cool $3,000 even. The actual registration cost was about $450.00, the rest was sales tax (sheez that hurt)

Hope this helps!

Hello Fellow Colorado Pilot Owner!
Get that second mortgage ready. Ownership tax was around $550 plus the other fees and taxes total was around $640. I had already paid the city tax to dealer and that was around $1000. Glad to see there is another Sandstone EX-L in Colorado. Really love my Pilot and see so few of them around town. I have not had any problems to speak of except for driver side front seat movement and went to dealer with TSB in hand where they repaired with a few shims.

THREE GRAND???? WOW!!!!!!!! And I thought my payout of a tad under 2K was terrible. But, you know the worst part. The next time your Pilot is sold, the lucky new owner gets to pay the sales tax again. At least thats they way it is in MO.

Thanks - I'm in the same boat on sales tax since I bought mine up in Laramie. A little better cuz I traded in my Buick PA and the tax (as we know) is based on the difference. Sounds like somewhere between $450 and $550 (as another Piloteer mentioned).

Thanks!

Thanks - sounds like somewhere in the $450 to $550 range for just the onwership taxes and title fees. Sales tax will be based on my trade price. In any case - it will be an expensive day!!

Yep - very happy with the Sandstone - not too many around here either. I have seen one other in Loveland and a couple out on I-25.

See ya!

Same here in Colorado - sales tax happens EACH time a vehicle is sold. Also, the required emissions test must be done each time a vehicle is re-sold.

I paid the sales tax when I bought the vehicle. Didn't look to close because my heart couldn't take it.
So when my temp plate expires I'm looking at another $450-$550 (DOH!!)??

By the way Colorider, you'll be happy to know that you don't have to do emissions unless the car is over 4 years old (used to be 2 years, and they made it longer, I'm thinking 4, but not 100%).

One other thing I get dinged for when I get new plates it the extra $35 for the "Pioneer" plates. Got them on 2 already, might as well splurge for this one too!!

Yes, I know that the first 4 years are exempt UNLESS the car is re-sold. Then you are required to get a new emissions test. Reason behind all this it because it is the States way of controlling the emissions "cycle".

I all ready had the Pioneer plates and will simply transfer from my previous vehicle. Just wish they offered them in a motorcycle plate. I have to "settle" for a Vet plate on it!

Thanks!

Colorado probably holds the record for the most "specialty" plates. Everything from vanity to CSU Buffs to Tree Hugger plates. Included (as do many other states) are plates for Honorably Discharged Vets (military) and also Purple Heart plates. I qualify for Pioneer plates because I have ancestors that were living in Colorado at least 100 years ago. I also qualify for the "vet" plate as I served in the USN back in the 60's.

Colorado generates a LOT of extra revenue with all these plates - not sure where all the money goes though!!! :confused:

I just registered mine yesterday (2/25/03) and had to pay around $625. Yikes! I had already paid the tax at the dealership. Hope that helps!

Wow - I wonder why such a range. All the way from $450 to $625. I would think that no matter where you are in the state, the ownership tax, title fee and license fee should be the same. There will be a slight difference between the base LX all the way up to the EX-L with NAV or the DVD - but that sure shouldn't account for that much of a range. I guess I'll find out come Monday or Tuesday of next week!!

Thanks!

Hmmm, your mention of using the 2 months just made me think of something. :bonk:

I wonder if the owenership tax is based on when you actually purchased the vehicle and depending on when you go to get you plates, you are paying for anywhere from 12 months of ownership tax to 14 months worth. ??? Anyone know for sure?

$1200 for six months seems steep to me - but every area and every driver seems to get different rates. I'm with State Farm and mine is less than half that amount.

They get you from the purchase date!! I bought an old Harley that was just barely road worthy. I didn't license it and spent 6 months rebuilding it. When I did license it, they dinged me for the 6 months that it was in pieces. When I complained I was told that this was to done to keep people from driving as long as possible without getting plates (trying to get 6 or 8 months out of the 45 day permit).

Which does make sense after seeing a car the other day with 1998 Nebraska plates on it.

That makes sense and now I remember that I used to get hit with the same thing with a camper I used to own that I did not "pull" for exteneded periods. The arguement was that I still "owned" it - even if it wasn't on Colorado highways.

I'm just a little over 30 days into my 45 day permit (Wyoming issued), so maybe my ownership tax will be towards the low end of the range reported here.

That'll also teach you not to buy a Harley next time! :14: :)
(sorry - couldn't resist)
