Anderson Herald (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Anderson, Indiana Basic helps figure Auto excise tax editor s note last sunday the Herald began a series of articles exploring various facets of Indiana a Auto excise tax effective with the Purchase of 1971 Auto License plates. The series will continue As a Public service and will be concluded next week. By Jon Shafer Herald staff writer it might be suggested that All a person has to do is apply some Basic mathematics to understand the new Auto excise tax and How much ifs going to Cost each Motorist. Last week for instance an at tempt was made to dissect the excise tax by playing with a theoretical sum of $3,600 first weighing it against the now dead personal property tax system and then revealing there is More than one Way to spend $3,600 on a new automobile. First it was Learned the excise most Likely will Cost less where tax rates Are higher than $7, that is compared to what a person would pay if he still owed personal property taxes on his car. Secondly we cited As one example that if a new car buyer finds a a factory advertised delivered Price of $2,999, then adds $601 Worth of optional equipment he still has his $3,600 car. But he pays $36 less in excise because the fade fell below $3,000, one cutoff amount which puts the car in the next higher excise category. For some however trying to a a beat the excise tax May be More trouble than ifs Worth. But at least it promises to offer a Challenge to the prospective new car buyer who hates taxes enough to make a career of sliding by As cheaply As he can within Legal limits. Yet he will have to do his Homework. The Only sure fire Way of avoiding the excise tax altogether and do it legally is to sell your car and Burn your Drivers License. Of course that sat the expense of creating some very real problems in transportation. The next Best thing is to Purchase a vehicle at a fade of $1,499 or less for which the excise will be $12. Or Purchase any vehicle including a Rolls Royce that is eight years old or older. The excise still will be $12, no matter what classification the car Falls into new car buyers will have to decide How much they intend to spend on a car then do their own figuring on the basis of the following fade classifications and the set excise taxes for each under first year of manufacture. In this Case 1971 models a class i to $1,499. Excise $12. Class ii $1,500 to $2,249, excise $36. Class Iii $2,250 to $2,999. Excise $60. A class in. $3,000 to $3,999, excise $96. Class a $4,000 to $5,499, excise $132.the Anderson Herald class i $5,500 and up excise $196. Another example say you plan to spend about $4,500 on a More luxury or performance oriented machine. Excise tax Wise if it Means that much the idea is to find a base Model with a fade of $3,999 or less. Since optional equipment is not included in the fade and is not taxed under the excise system the car Falls into class in instead of class v. That Means the excise would be $96 instead of $132.
