How much is your car tax?

Mine was due a day ago (all bought and paid for now) but I was shocked to find out that the amount had only gone up 5 from last year?!

Its now 175 for my Subaru, what about anyone else's? What does this Validation Character mean as I have a Z by that?!

I have to pay 464,00 Euro per year. Tax is based on the weight of the vehicle here.

I think that is about 325 pound or 555 USD.

Taxation of vehicles and road use is very high in the Netherlands.


For example, the WRX STI costs 51.785 Euro here. This price includes 6.107,89 Euro VAT and 13.530,34 Euro BPM (Special tax on new vehicles). That is almost 20 000 Euro tax you have to pay.

Why is it so high? I assume you mean 51,785 rather than 51.785?? I'm a little on the thick side of things today!!

Yes, I mean 51,785 but here we write it down as 51.785.

The Government here likes to spend a lot of money, and the think they can get it from car owners. There are also some politicians here that want high taxes on cars and fuel for environmental reasons. That's why the taxation is high in the Netherlands.
