A few years ago Dem Gov Ritter added a fee onto registration to help pay for bridges and roads. Of course this is illegal because it is actually a tax hike that the people of Colorado did not vote for...sound familiar? And, of cours, the bridges and roads are not getting fixed. My utility trailer went from $11/yr to $44/yr after this "fee"was enacted.

Anyway I won't go on or we will have to move this to the Political and Controversial section.

Barry, to answer your original question, Alaska has made things a bit more difficult to claim the Sauidi-like oil royalty, but many people still try to maintain a "residence" there and keeping a vehicle registered there can help with their case.

Edit: this is the way it used to be....not sure what AK is doing now for the oil share program and it may just be that now AK is just a lot cheaper to have your vehicle registered there.

Yes CO taxes are crazy, they've gotten enough of my money ( plus everyone and their mother is moving here, CO is doing just fine with everyones money). Doesn't matter if your in the military or not, you are still required to get new plates in whatever state/country your in. In the end, police have a too much to deal with, than worry about an out of state license plate. I don't need to go to AK every 2 years either, they just send a sticker in the mail to my CO address. Until CO changes the ridiculous "system", I will continue to keep my AK plates (probably forever)!

You have to be a resident for at least 2 years to claim the oil dividend

Alaska required you to register your vehicle within 60 days of driving it into the state too, and they enforced it pretty strongly.

The one that blows me away in Montana plates. Montana will give you plates for life, and no emissions. So you see a lot of exotic sports cars and whatnot with MT plates.

Dan
As I recall the main reason for the MT plates on exotics and megadollar RVs (Prevosts, Newmars and the like) is the fact that there is no state sales tax, and anyone can set up a LLC to title their toy in Montana and not pay any sales tax.

Roads definitely fall under a tax of some sort for those that drive on them, but why they need so many forms is what's nuts. (Fuel, Registration, Emission, and Toll) What's frustrating, is they continue the taxes but still need toll roads on top of it. What's really nuts, is that the current tax system actually encourages the one thing they don't want- old cars on the road that "pollute" more.

Meh...back to topic. Ok, so most people are likely former AK residents and they continue "residency" there to some extent to save $5k on registration here, and get the $3k Oil dividend. Makes sense to me.

@milehigh, for folks on active duty you can typically keep your home of record drivers license and vehicle registration etc. Once you retire you need to comply with whatever state your living in or return "home". I had permanent plates for my 40 and m/c for many years. IIRC correctly lifetime plates were only offered for 11 year and older vehicles.

FASTER...that was it! I forget what it stands for...I only remember being pissed about the governor circumventing the state constitution to levy a tax on CO citizens, and that my utility trailer was then as much to register as my FJ40 was before the "tax" went into place.
