Legislation (H.B. 4736) to increase the initial registration and transfer registration tax by $100 was introduced in the Michigan House. Under the bill, the increase would apply only to the first registration that is not a transfer registration and for the first registration after a transfer registration.
We Urge You to Contact House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Members (List Below) Immediately To Request Their Opposition to H.B. 4736
- Under H.B. 4736, the $100 tax increase would apply according to the vehicle’s list price, with more costly vehicles being taxed at a higher rate.
- H.B. 4736 makes no special exception for hobby cars such as kits, classics, old timers, reconstructed, replica, specially constructed and street rods that constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet, are infrequently operated on public roadways and deserving of lower registration taxes.
- The tax collected under H.B. 4736 would be used to fund state road projects.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Michigan House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to H.B. 4736.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
