Car Tax!

Post by Marchio » Tue Dec 04, 2018 5:34 am

It’s my own fault, I should have checked. Just found out I’m going to have to pay £450 a year tax on this new DS 2.0 diesel I’ve just got and if I’d realised this I wouldn’t have got it. I didn’t know you got taxed extra for any car with a list price over £40k. I thought it went on CO2 so paying more than I did for a 3.0 Jeep. Car is 5 days old on a PCP now I’m stuck and wondering how the hell to get out of it.

You won’t unfortunately unless you get shot of the car. It’s a bit annoying if the car cost just over the £40k.

You’re paying basically an extra £350 more than you would because of the cars value. The first year doesn’t matter, it’s all included in the price, it’s just the next 5 years renewal.

Yep, it's total bollocks. Your getting taxed because you've bought an expensive car, got nothing to do with the environment

Spreadsheet Phil and his "stealth taxes".......just like his predecessor with the "showroom tax"......

Aren't Socialist policies "wonderful"? 😡

Yep
Always worth checking and researching before you buy.
Car Tax was already discussed on the forum at length before when the changes were made.

That's why they brought in the Landmark edition IMHO (more or less exactly the same as HSE, even got HSE on the back) but it's just under £40k.
I most certainly WAS NOT going to give this corrupt Government £450 a year just for the sake of it!

I suppose the Government's il-logic is, if you can afford to pay £40+ for a car you can afford £450 tax - sod the CO2 emissions !! :x

Hence my comment about Socialist policies (with a supposed blue rosette on!)

Cut any of 'em in half and they all bleed and lie the same as each other.....as long as it keeps their snouts in the proverbial trough....

Thems the rules. Personally I can see it far enough, but I knew it was coming if I spent £40k plus.

Council Tax is another thing I dislike. I don’t see why I should be subsidising everyone else, I mean if I go into the supermarket for a loaf of bread, they don’t charge me more cos I’ve got a certain banded house, so why should local government charge me proportionately more for emptying a bin because I’ve got a bigger house than someone else? or why people that instantly double the size of their house get away with it without a revaluation.

Yup. But then you have Wee Burney running the show up there, and as disgusted as I am with this lot, if she was running the land here I wou,d have committed treason by now!
