after seeing the cost of running a newer car here, I wonder if we are going to stay here after the boss gets out of the AF. The way that I see it, and not that I like Texas, that is far from the truth. When we got a car in Texas, we paid the same tax rate (granted the was no credit for the trade in), no smog, $60 a year for registration, insurance was the same, gas was lower, and there was no state income taxes either. So why would it be $60 to register my car in Texas yet it is over $400 a year here? If you register two cars here that are around 20-25k... that is $800 a year. I just think about all the Jeep parts that I could buy for that much.
Now I see why they have a constable that his only job is to enforce out of state tags. I am very happy that they do have a military clause so we pay under $40 a year.
daily rant over!!
