Painful for sure. I space mine so the pain is easier to deal with:
98 Grand Cherokee
95 Grand cherokee (Son's car)
89 F-150 due this month
76 Redale MH apartment on wheels
02 DRZ400s
08 WeeStrom
02 utility trailer
Since I already pay WAY MORE than my FAIR share of taxes in this country, I drive older vehicles and that slightly reduces the amount I have to pay. Next I need to own many less vehicels, somehow i think our gubberm$nt will help me do that. Anybody know of a 215 lb bike that will comfortably carrry all my stuff,cruising all day @ 80 mph, and easily do 5 mile of hell?

Most of the high fees are "Ownership tax". In addition to the sales tax paid at purchase, they are paid every year on a declining scale. Completely different from registration fees, though collected through the motor vehicle department.

Works like this:
  • 1st year of service: 2.1% of taxable value
  • 2nd year of service: 1.5% of taxable value
  • 3rd year of service: 1.2% of taxable value
  • 4th year of service: .9% of taxable value
  • 5th, 6th ,7th, 8th & 9th: .45% of taxable value
  • 10 and all later years: $3.00 flat fee.
For passenger vehicles, light trucks, and motorcycles, "taxable value" = 85% of MSRP.


If you buy a new $50,000 truck, you will pay ~$3,500 sales tax (+/- depending on city/local tax rates) plus another ~$2,600 in 'ownership tax' in the first five years of use!

(ps: Ownership tax is typically deductable on your federal and state tax returns, so at least you are paying those fees in pre-tax dollars )

Truth in advertising :

Just one of the perks of living off the tax revenue collected from people who
had enough personal initiative to work in the private sector instead of
hanging off the government tit because they couldn't find a decent job in the
private sector.

I don't know why anyone would be suprised by such a post - it is simply an emulation of what officials in the highest levels of Gov't have promoted and more than 1/2 of the US population support. The haves and rich are mostly Gov't employees (they get pensions and make more than private sector employees), so they should certainly "pay their fair share" and such tax avoidance "loopholes" should be closed.

That said, I tend to feel the grunts in our military are not treated well in their jobs or well treated when injured (or their families when killed), but they choose their path. The higher-ups (generals, etc, are overpaid, and too much time for "extracuricular activities" (like the Paula Broadwell incident). No time to protect the constitution - I got me an interviewer to phuck....

Except for the possibility of being pressed into combat and involuntarily being uprooted, there are some good Military perks.

I really hope you are joking Zach. I work for the government. I make water safe for use of the people. I know not an important job. With my skill set I can get payed more in the private sector. What you say than why do you work for the gov? Like you said it is a choice. I like the job security in what I do. It is hard to outsource water treatment to India since the water is here.
