    Colorado license fees

    Just picked up the plates for the new bighorn today, only $1700.00 I wouldn't mind it much if this state would keep the roads in good shape. The price a guy will pay to have fun...

    And the government is tacking on the road and bridge extra fee. The roads here in Colorado continue to get worse and worse.

    Is that a lifetime registration fee?

    License fees in Colorado are high. And there's State Income Tax. But property tax is so low that it completely offsets the higher fees and taxes; at least compared to Texas.

    There's no free lunch. Just different ways of paying the bill.

    Colorado has a luxury tax system on items like boats and RV's that are over a certain length. Our new RV plates were $2300 a year.

    Maybe. Be interesting to compare. The $1700 would more than pay my property tax and license fees for all of my vehicles (2 PU, Car, & RV) My RV plates are $115/yr.

    The house we sold in Austin in 2014 has 2017 estimated property tax of $9421.80 according to county tax records. That's for a 2400 square foot brick home on a small lot.

    Our CO property tax + income tax + license fees on car, truck, RV all adds up to just over 1/2 of the Austin property tax.

    If you're only paying $1700 of property tax in Texas, I'm guessing you have an AG or other significant exemption.

    But what was your personal property tax? Again, there is no free lunch. They get you one way or another.

    We do not have personal property taxes in Arizona but our license fees are high.
