I know not everyone has to pay property taxes on their cars...here in Connecticut it is a big revenue for our poorly run state, and our taxes are pretty high compared to other states; but the state services we receive are also pretty good. Especially if you are on welfare !
Not that owning a 500E helps CT's economy much....as mine is registered as a 'Classic' vehicle....my total outlay was a whopping $19.50 for 2017. But the CLK63, for example...that cost me close to $1000 with a regular plate and registration.
Just curious to as what, if any, the other owners need to cough up for their E500E taxes.
