In Washington state:
Currently $43.75/53.75/63.75 depending on weight. $43.75 for my Civic.
+ Regional Transit Authority fee which varies by car and city. $4 for my Civic.
+ Local transportation benefit district fees. Many cities charge $20. Mine is $0.
+ Filing fee of $3.00 (Pay them to tax my money...)

So, 50.75 for my Civic.

If I lived in nearby Seattle and had a a heavy pickup truck, it would end up being a bit over $100


$20 every few years for mandatory replacement of license plates.

And the "Use Tax" (about 10% of the car's value) paid when you first purchase a car either from a private party or dealer. This is paid EVERY time a car is purchased. This is a big scam in my mind since an older car that has changed hands often can easily generate more tax income to the state than the original purchase price of the car... And then dealerships are allowed to only charge use tax on the difference between the new car's value and the trade-in's value to add incentive for people to buy from a dealer instead of private party.
