Other than taking money out of my wallet, why the heck should I have to renew my car's registration every two years? Why?

I can understand registering a car when I take ownership of it, so that in the event it is in an accident or is abandoned they know who to contact. But why do I have to basically fork over $100+ just to tell the DMV that I still have my own damned car?!?!?

All I should be required to do is let them know when I buy a car, and let them know when I get rid of it.

a reply to: eluryh22 Yeah, what are they losing this information every two years? Aren't computers capable in this day and age to retain information for like forever?

No. You have to make sure the address is updated so they can have a record of where to come get you when you do something illegal.

There is no "other then open your wallet"
Its just another "tax" disguised as a "service" that if you don't pay well if u drive without it you still get taxed if caught and lose your ride. Think extortion meets tax

I thought you registered your car every year when you purchase the license plates. Why is it every 2 years?

Maybe it is different in each state. Here it is every two years.

It's used like a tax to assist with state funding. Highway repairs, DMV salaries, etc. I believe. It sucks, but is necessary in my opinion.

I've lived in the same crappy apartment for over a decade.

All states have their own regulations. I lease so the three years are tacked onto the initial downpayment.

Eh. They say that about everything. Gas tax? To repair the roads. Tolls? To repair the roads.

I wish they would just send me a bill in the mail that simply states, "F U... pay me!!!"

a reply to: soulpowertothendegree wouldn't it be nice if they just gave you a reminder to update the information by a certain date, but no, moneys gotta circulate, I guess.

Sounds like when Jimmy The Gent was choking Morrie with the phone cord.

Well, you're right. What is the matrix about? Control…

Mega corporations and militaries round the world get away with wholesale slavery and mass murder, but you and you little car need to be taxed, permitted, registered, monitored, inspected, certified, stamped, tagged and approved, over and over again, until the day you die…

At least here, you cant register without insurance.

Dumbasses without auto insurance. Not just for idiots anymore.

Ever wonder why you need to buy uninsured motorists coverage? Because some clown too stupid to buy insurance will try to kill you someday in their car.

Been there, been hit by them before.

So basically, yes, licence=insurance=registration=smart.

Sorry about the thread drift. I forgot this thread was just about taxes.

It's just aarevenue stream to keep the DMV employees paid, nothing more. Same with annual tags. If we don't pay constantly, they don't get a paycheck...

I just realised my registration expired two months ago.


I will get mine renewed for the simple reason of I don't like paying tickets.
