Gotta collect some revenue some how some way when you have no or very little state taxes. One way or another it all adds up to what each state thinks it needs to operate on.

AZ truck registration appears more expensive than California. Wow.


That's because vehicle registration here is a de facto property tax, though it =does= go down. Minimum is about $35 without any fancy stuff, like vanity plates, university plate, etc. Crazy thing is, you can have a "retro car", like a $100k+ Cobra or '65 Corvette repro and it's registered as whatever year it's modeled after. I talked to a guy a number of years ago that had a Cobra 427. Paid $85k for it in the 90's and was paying $35 a year to register it, even though it was a year old. Registered as a '65.

I bought an utility trailer to move my Can Am Spyder three wheel motor cycle between Arizona and Washington each spring and fall. $175 for a life time plate!Cars, trucks and RV are really expensive in Arizona however.


A utility trailer < 10k GVW can get a permanent plate here. Towable RVs are specifically excluded under ARS.

But, in AZ. the first owner pays sales tax, the second owner is no longer required to pay sales tax. It is only collected one time when the vehicle is new.

Just spoke to a dealer friend and this is not correct. =Any= time a vehicle is sold by a =dealer=, sales tax is paid on it; doesn't matter if it's a new vehicle or a used one originally sold in AZ. Only private sales are not taxed.

FWIW, if you trade in another vehicle, you only pay sales tax on the NET amount, not the full amount. It's always something to think about when trading in a vehicle. I.e. is the difference you'd get on a private sale more than the tax you'll pay on the purchase without a trade? Given the prices on used cars/trucks these days, I'd say trade it in!

Bought a 1999 Ford F-350 and a 2000 Wanderer Wagon 5th wheel 32 foot in California in March & April 2020 from private parties. Couldn't register either in Cali because DMV was closed due to Covid. Moved to Arizona at the end of April 2020. Went to the Kingman ADOT MVD & registered BOTH of them for two years for $208 TOTAL. Good luck getting a similar deal in Cali. My 1996 GMC Suburban's registration was almost $200 (and going up every year) for 2019/2020. I sold it before I moved.

Yes a 16.25% decrease every year really reduces AZ fees for older vehicles, probably to a minimum amount.

However newer vehicles pay a much higher rate.

I checked on how AZ registration fees are calcuated and updated my 6/23/21 post to reflect the small difference between a new and used vehicle.
