Passenger vehicle registration fees, use taxes and supplemental fees

Determine the fees and taxes for passenger vehicles

Use the both the registration fee and county use tax charts to determine your registration fee and county use tax.

If this is the original registration of your vehicle, in addition to the registration fee and county use tax, you must pay

  • the fees for your vehicle plates ($25.00)
  • your title certificate ($50.00)
  • the sales tax - the amount of the sales tax depends on the purchase price and your locality. You can see the current sales tax rates by jurisdiction  at the Department of Taxation and Finance web site.

There is a minimum 2-year fee of $32.50 for a vehicle that has 6 or more cylinders, or for an electric vehicle. Dealers, this minimum fee is not a surcharge or an additional fee. 1

  • 1. Do not add $32.50 to the fee that the chart indicates or to the amount that the Estimate registration fees service calculates.
  • 2. The DMV collects the taxes for the city and the counties. Read the table below to determine if you must pay a vehicle use tax. If you have questions about these taxes, ask the city or county where you reside or have a business.
  • 3. If you reside in New York City and you are exempt from the NYC vehicle use tax, get form UT-11 from a local DMV office or a DMV Call Center.
