The municipal fee is a sales tax by another name. Is regressive and continues for the life of the car. Instead of talking about raising the deduction for the interest and dividends tax how about reforming this tax to give the middle class and working poor a break?

I doubt it; Fla is far less exspensive.

We may save a few bucks on vehicle costs, but we sure get hosed with our outlandish property taxes.

Michael Raleigh... Actually a sales tax only occurs at the time of the sale. The municipal fee is a property tax based on the value of the car at the time of purchase, and devalued at a set rate over a period of six years. Brian St Onge... Our property tax varies, and is largely dependent on local voters deciding what is worth paying for.

Oh...I don't think so, Kevin.And - you'll never inquire why I disagree with the gist of this article.

As a former four decade plus resident of NH, I appreciate the "whys" of NH's lowest car ownership costs. I since retired to NC, which fortunately has the second lowest costs; however because of our 7.5% sales tax, it costs that much more overall to live here. NC drivers are ranked the 7th worst in the U.S., primarily due to distracted driving, primarily due to cell-phone users of a certain sex, who are the majority of drivers here. :)
