de nada. The one other add-on that I forgot is the voter-approved Sound Transit Motor Vehicle Excise Tax of 0.3 percent. It is calculated similarly to the old pre-I-695 MVET:
"For Sound Transit tax purposes, the Department of Licensing uses the first published base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of a vehicle, except for commercial trucks and trailers. The tax on these types of vehicles is calculated based on the latest purchase price and year. It is also determined by applying a depreciation formula for the vehicle's current age."
I really encourage people to spend more time on government websites -- they are usually very user friendly and offer a wealth of information. For example, I just signed up for e-mail reminders on tab renewals (just remember to update if you change your e-mail address.)
I also discovered that DOL has a 'licence tab fee calculator' that will list all the pertinent fees for your car (all you need is your license number and last name or business name.) I ran mine, which don't expire until March, so it gave me this year's fees, not my 2012 fees (it's a '91, so the RTA tax is as low as it goes; next year, they may owe me money...):
"It will cost $52.75 to renew your tabs. You may print this page for your records.
- Filing fee (Funds go to the county in which the fee is paid.): $3.00
- RTA tax (Funds go to your Regional Transit Authority. For details call: (877) 755-4550.): $4.00
- License fee (Funds construction and maintenance projects.): $30.00
- Weight base fee (Funds highway improvements, transit and other transportation needs.): $10.00
- License service fee (Supports the computer system used to provide licensing services.): $0.75
- State Parks Account donation (Supports Washington State Parks.): $5.00
Presumably, the 2012 tabs will include the $20 for the city and another $20 for the county for a total of $92.75.
Rather than post a direct link, I'll let y'all use a link from my earlier posts so you can have the fun of exploring the DOL site.
