Several months ago I had to pay the yearly registration for the Nissan I was driving until recently. Since taking delivery of my awesome new pickemup, I’ve been driving on a temporary license tag, the usual thing in many states I suppose. Well, I finally received the phone call from the dealer today, telling me I can come get the paperwork from the DMV. The DMV is called the Secretary Of State in Michigan by the way.
I did go to the nearest DMV office today but was told I had the incorrect proof of insurance card, it wasn’t valid for almost two weeks, and I didn’t have a current card on board. So I went home and decide to try to do this online again, I’d had some issues earlier today that stopped me from completing the process. Well, this attempt was successful and I finally have my real license plate back on board.
But what a shocker it was to find out at the end of the process that I once again had to pay the full one year fee! Apparently, Nevada doesn’t know what Proration is. Once again I had to fork over just a tiny bit under five hundred dollars to re-register my new truck. Nevada is a bloody expensive state to own your own transportation. The list of state and a myriad of other taxes and fees on the sheet I printed for my records was ludicrous. It’s amazing how many ways the state has to drill ever deeper into your pocket.
Las Vegas is a huge city with just over two million residents today. As just one example of costs here, the CCSD (Clark County School District) has an operating budget of $3,690,294,998. Holy smokaronis! So then, who are the cash cows in Las Vegas Valley? hmmm… Photo by iPhone7
