Wow, I didn't know there was such thing as excise tax. I just googled it. So it's like an annual property tax but for your vehicles? Sounds like straight up robbery if you drive a nice car.
Here in Texas it's sales tax at purchase and like $50 plus $14 safety inspection for registration every year. That's it.
Well not including the annual bs ticket from goofy hat wearing DPS officers.
So you get a subsidy and rebate to start paying taxes.
Seems like with a separate metered service people would just opt for a slow charge overnight on 120v. ...or run an extension cord from the dryer to avoid taxation. Amiright?
