close but the 3740 is already 80% of whatever the 100% was.... ya followin me? i bought the car for way less and they were sayin i had to pay 6.25 tax of 3740.... so the full value im guessin was over 4gs or so....No their saying the vehicle is valued at $3740, So he has to pay 6.25% tax on 80% of that value
So he has to pay 6.25% tax on $2992 which comes to $187
ya i think thats what happend but they couldnt change it and it didnt let me do a model. idk....You may want to check and see if they are valuing your car as an Impala SS. Since you cannot tell by the VIN, many of these cars come back as 'Chevrolet Caprice/Impala SS' when you look the VIN up. This happened to me on my '95 9C1 on my property taxes. They automatically assumed it was an Impala instead of a Caprice. One phone call cut my personal property tax bill on that car by nearly half!
We save a lot of money doing it that way. My dad will register the car with the lowest valve, then transfer it to his newest car. then a week or so later, do it again. We also seem to buy a LOT of cars in the $300-$700 range.Always pull your tags off your current vehicle if your selling it or trading it. You can transfer the tags to the new vehicle for a small fee. They don't tell you this but if you read the fine print on the renewals it's there.
