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.

 

Highlights:

  •  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.
