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.

HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF. 57 years ago, there was another governor who blocked children from being educated. ​ That was June 11, 1963. Fast forward to now. Last Friday, May 1st, the federal government gave all 50 states the green light to reopen. But instead of...

NO $30 TABS! Because of Bob Ferguson

NO $30 TABS! Because of Bob Ferguson

None of us will be getting $30 tabs. It was supposed to happen today. It didn’t. Why? Because of Bob Ferguson. If he had filed his response on Wednesday like attorney Stephen Pidgeon did, it would have taken an action by the supreme court to extend the injunction. And...
