Motor Vehicle Registration Fees & Taxes 2012

This tax chart applies to the following vehicles:
~ Expiration Date is January 2012 or later
~ Registering for the first time in 2012
~ Alaska registration expired over 1 full year (and registering in 2012)

For other tax charts, click on the description that best describes your vehicle expiration date:
~ Expiration Date is in 2011
~ Expiration Date is in 2010

Registration fees for passenger vehicles are based on the class of vehicle and on the weight of a vehicle in cases of trucks, buses and for hire vehicles. In addition, some municipalities and boroughs levy a Motor Vehicle Registration Tax (MVRT).  The tax is based on the class, year of the vehicle and the owner's residence address, with a new passenger vehicle and a passenger vehicle that is up to its second year of age having a MVRT tax of $150.00 if the owner resides in Anchorage. FOR EXAMPLE, in Anchorage, the tax on a passenger vehicle registration expiring in January 2012 with a 2007 model year would be $100.00. For a 2000 model, the tax would be $70.00.

The residence address listed on the Application for Title & Registration (section 4) determines whether or not taxes are required prior to registering (renewing) a vehicle in the State of Alaska. To determine the correct registration fee, look for the type of vehicle under REGISTRATION FEES. Next, check the TAX CHARTS under TAXABLE LOCATION. If the residence city is listed, look for the VEHICLE TYPE and then look for the VEHICLE MODEL YEAR to determine the tax amount. If the vehicle year is not on the chart, use the tax for a 2005 model year.

Please be aware that the Alaska DMV does not accept non-personalized checks.  Your name and address must be pre-printed on your check to be acceptable.
