WA Tax and Tag Calculator

Sometimes the Washington tax and tag calculator can be the best way possible for you to get the information you need concerning your required registration fees before you end up in the office just short of your needed payment. Of course, if you aren’t able to pay this fee in full, you will be required to make another visit in order to pay the costs of your registration, which includes Washington tax and tags, which can be such an unnecessary hassle. This not only delays your vehicle getting on the road, but delays your reliable transportation or other plans that you have for the vehicle.

Washington Use Tax

There are taxes assessed on most vehicles that are processed through the Washington Department of Licensing’s vehicle licensing offices, which includes the use tax in Washington. This tax is placed on items that sales tax hasn’t been paid on, which is typically during the transfer of a newly purchased private party vehicle.

The rates of this tax are calculated based on:

  • The buyer’s address and are assessed much like the sales tax would be.
  • There is also another fee for motor vehicle sales tax of 0.3% assessed on qualified vehicles.
