YES on I-976 – $30 Car Tabs
ALL WASHINGTON VOTERS:
VOTE YES ON I-976 IN NOVEMBER
(I-976 – A STATEWIDE INITIATIVE WHICH BRINGS BACK $30 CAR TABS)
For 20 years, taxpayers have fought for and passed this protection
ROUND 1 –
In 1999, voters passed I-695’s $30 cap on vehicle license tabs. Court vetoed it but the 2000 Legislature immediately adopted it. Democrat Governor Gary Locke said: “We will not return to the days of high license fees – $30 license tabs are here to stay.”
ROUND 2 –
In 2002, voters passed I-776’s $30 cap. Court upheld it on single subject rule and other issues. Court came back later and said I-776 did repeal Sound Transit’s vehicle tax but since I-776 didn’t mandate bond retirement (I-976 does require it), the tax remains.
Thanks to ROUNDS 1 & 2,
vehicle tab costs stayed low for almost 14 years. But vehicle owners are getting hit with massive sticker shock by skyrocketing vehicle costs. Despite hearing from outraged constituents for 2 years, politicians have done nothing.
THAT’S WHY ROUND 3 IS NEEDED –
352,000 people got I-976 on the ballot. So now the voters have a rare chance to protect themselves from skyrocketing taxes.
- I-976 caps vehicle registration costs at $30 per year for everyone in the state (cars, light trucks, SUVs, & other vehicles) and gets rid of state and local taxes and fees on vehicles.
- I-976 repeals the dishonest, inaccurate vehicle valuation schedule that’s got everyone so upset. I-976 prevents state and local governments from artificially inflating the value of your vehicle(s) to bring in more taxes than they should. No more price gouging.
- I-976 prohibits state and local govts from imposing dishonest vehicle taxes. Sound Transit lied to voters about the costs. I-976 is a do-over for voters now that we know the truth. Getting rid of their dishonest vehicle tax gives back $7 billion to taxpayers. ST’s own report shows that I-976 only affects a small portion (13%) of ST3’s $54 billion:
Politicians will NEVER limit taxes.
Vote YES on I-976 and bring back our $30 tabs.

BOB FERGUSON SABOTAGED I-976 FROM WITHIN Sen. Steve O'Ban was right - Bob Ferguson couldn't be trusted to defend I-976 because of his obvious conflicts (pro-Sound Transit, anti-Eyman, obvious no vote on I-976). Now we know why he explicitly refused to recuse himself...
