Featured Tabs - Seriously?

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by MotoGK, Aug 23, 2017.

  1. Is this a mistake or is this new norm?!

  2. New norm:
    http://www.dol.wa.gov/vehicleregistration/rta.html

    "This tax helps fund construction and operation of Sound Transit's regional mass transit services. In 2016, voters in the Sound Transit district approved an additional tax of eight-tenths of one percent (0.8%) for regional transit expansions, raising the rate to 1.1%. The increase applies to vehicles with tabs beginning or renewing on or after March 1, 2017."
     

  3. Mine went up $20. Really hurt. Kidding. Seems some people's have gone up more than others regardless of the vehicle value. It seems to be somewhat regional. I wonder if there's another tax based on where you live within the sound transit area?
     
  4. I paid 130 last year on my scout with personalized plates. 250 this year. Pisses me off that I'm paying for something I don't use. Both through tabs and property tax. They also did a gas tax for this a couple years ago.
     
  5. Went up 78 bucks. 160 something.
    Fucking cockhole st3 bullshit.
     
  6. That's why voting is important.

  7. Yeah, I have dual residency (Nevada and Washington) and the ST3/RTA fees are making me strongly consider moving all my WA registrations to [back to, in some cases] Nevada. Downside is I'd have to haul them all down to Reno to do so.
     
  8. my only complaint is that it should be shared statewide, ferry ride is very expensive and easy for most to say well pay as you use it, same with bridges but then we build 100s of miles of highway out into the middle of nowhere where very few people live and there's no toll for them. My tabs aren't anywhere near that high, I live in Kitsap county and commute to Seattle daily so i'm going to benefit (probably indirectly) from transportation infrastructure projects in the city but it sounds like i'm not paying a fair share. :\
     
  9. You can thank Sen Curtis King for your tab woes. The 2015 Hog I bought in April was almost $1300 to register. Yet the legislature is holding up lane sharing, the cheapest fix for congestion in Seattle. Support ABATE in this effort. Even if you aren't on board with ABATE at the very least be contacting your legislators. Rep Judy Clibborn needs to hear from Seattlites on lane sharing, she's transportation committee chair and sitting on this bill .....
