Most used car dealers list vehicle prices excluding tax, title, brokers fee, license & registration. Do you have any idea what the ball park figure for these additional items tend to average?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Olga, The tax rate will all depend on which state you purchase the vehicle from and which state you register it in. You could ask the dealer you are working with for these figures, or you could call your local Dept. of Motor Vehicles to find out what % of sales tax your state charges. License and Registration and Title also differ from state to state, and are different amounts depending of if you transfer your old license plate, or get a new one. The title may cost more if you are taking out a loan and have a lien holder. Again, you could ask the dealership or call your local Dept. of Motor Vehicles to find out the correct amount you will have to pay. Broker fees or Documentation fees are different for each dealer. You would have to ask the sales person to get this information. All My Best, Amy

Jenny Trostel, Partner at Anderson of Hunt Valley The taxes are calculated at the state rate by the sales price. For example, if the state sales taxes is 5 percent and you buy a $10,000.00 car, the taxes will be $500.00. Title,license and registration fees vary from state to state. Check the website for your state
