registration fees?

Well I have owned my big dog chopper for about 6 months now and figure I should go ahead and waste some money and get plates for it. I have been riding around on temp tags. LOL Anyway looked up the value on KBB and says 10k retail and 7k trade in. Obviously I know its worth more then that but for tax purposes I like that value. Just curious what everyone else who has done this says their bike is worth. Now in Texas they go by a % of book value so not a whole lot of room for negotiations. Figured I would tell them I bought it none running and it needed a motor rebuild for 4k and see if that works.

Good luck with that, I am sure the tax office has heard it all.

But they are going to ask, why do you need plates if its not running?

When I "bought it" it was not running which has everything to do with what I paid.

Bought my cobra for 17k turned the 1 into a $ and paid taxes on 12k which was low trade in value. You cant title a car or anything in Texas 2 ways. Title only transfer which will only put the item in your name, or title and registration. Most people dont know about the title only part as you have to request it.

There is no room for negotiation. They go by BB value only. Doesn't matter what you paid for the bike or what shape the bike was in. The only thing you can do is say the bike has more miles on it, so the BB value is less. Went through this about 3 months ago.

Did you really just admit to forging state documents on a public forum?

What state document would you be referring to exactly?? Nothing wrote on a state document was ever altered. Bought the car out of state.

You'll pay tax on 10% of presumptive value of you say you bought it for dirt cheap and it wasn't running.

write down a really low number and the tax office will likely pull up a "standard presumptive value" to tax you on. they started doing this to reduce tax fraud/increase revenue. standard presumptive value i think is tied into similar vehicle sales prices. i THINK you can get a certified appraisal and get taxed on that, but that'll probably cost more than the tax.

Standard Presumptive Value

All Texans who buy a used vehicle from anyone other than a licensed vehicle dealer are required to pay motor vehicle sales tax (6.25 percent) on either its purchase price or its standard presumptive value (SPV), whichever is the highest value. A vehicle’s standard presumptive value is the calculated price of a vehicle’s worth based on similar sales in the Texas region. As appropriate, your county tax office calculates the sales tax you owe based on this valuation.

Vehicles purchased from licensed dealers are not subject to the standard presumptive value tax, only vehicles purchased from a private party. The value applies whether you buy the vehicle in Texas or another state.

The Texas Legislature passed the law to ensure all Texans pay their fair share of vehicle sales taxes. The additional revenue helps fund Texas schools. You can preview the full Standard Presumptive Value (100%) of a used vehicle by entering the vehicle identification number (VIN) and odometer reading (not needed for motorcycles) in the boxes below. Please note:

Values are updated weekly.
The Standard Presumptive Value presented here should be used for estimation purposes only.
Actual sales tax due is calculated at the county tax office when the title transaction is submitted.
Values for some late-model vehicles may not be available.

If you paid less than the standard presumptive value for your vehicle, you may pay sales taxes on an appraisal amount provided it is certified by a licensed insurance adjuster or a licensed motor vehicle dealer; and obtained within 20 working days of the date of purchase.

Actually I'm lucky enough to always do even trades for everything I owned, so fortunately I only have to pay a 5$ even trade tax, no matter the value of the property.
