Abolishing Car Taxes

The car tax is the last vestige of an abusive and long ago discarded tax system. It's the old personal property tax - when the tax assessor pawed through your belongings and told you how much you had to pay to keep them. The USA and European Commission are currently calling for significant changes in the way passenger cars are taxed. The intention is to gradually apply the user pays principle to motorized transport. According to DG TAXUD, the envisioned taxation system will ensure a more appropriate internalization of the external costs of private cars - an important principle for which T&E has long been arguing. Taxing the actual use of private cars is an important step towards sustainable transport. But charges on car user ship ought to complement the already existing taxation of car ownership, and not just replace it. A full internalization of all environmental costs of cars must recognize the problems that result from the still growing sum total of cars on national and international roads. Road capacity in many regions has reached its limits - a fact that is most illustratively expressed by the continuous congestions on national highways and trunk roads. Capacity limits are reached as well in almost all urban areas, where evermore space is consumed by car-infrastructure such as parking spaces, car-dealers or car repair-, maintenance- and washing-facilities - not to mention streets themselves. Therefore a taxation system is needed that restricts both private user- and ownership by making sure that road passenger transport pays for its external costs. The positive response with which carmakers have welcomed (and had lobbied for) the abolition of registration taxes illustrates how auto-friendly the proposed legislation eventually may be. This, however, means that transport in general will not become more expensive - but that the sector will just pay differently and still not properly.
Thus to create harmonization it will make the economy more efficient, but does not automatically entail environmental improvement. As they stand now, the plans of the Commission to replace Registration Taxes by Annual Circulation Taxes may partially reduce private car use and thus lower the annual emissions of a single car. However, they will not provide any incentive at all to refrain from owning a car. In fact, the opposite is the case, because abandoning registration taxes will further stimulate the production and consumption of cars. This will be most tangible in countries like Denmark that were able to limit the growth of motorization rates and maintain a "greener" modal split by ways of higher registration rates.
It is to be noted that The Government has announced that with effect from 6 April 2002, the basis of taxation on cars provided by employers for employees' business and private use, will be changed to an emissions based system. Pool cars, provided for business use only, and which are returned to site at the end of the working day are currently not liable to benefit in kind taxation, and this will continue to be so. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions will be used as the measure to calculate benefit in kind taxation on company cars from that date. A tax discourages economic activity, such as work or investment. The tax is cut, leading to increased economic activity. Liberals then assume that previous rates of tax would still be collected at the higher rate of activity -- which, of course, only came about because of the lower tax rate -- thus depriving the government of vast revenues it is justly entitled to. It makes no difference to them that economic activity often expands by more than tax rates are cut, thus increasing total revenues. Liberals always still believe that even more would have been collected if only tax rates had not been cut. In the case of the car tax, liberals assume that additional cars would have been purchased anyway, without any change in the tax. And by multiplying the old car tax rate times the larger number of cars registered, they come up with mythical revenues that could pay for more teachers, police, and roads.
Thus, in this paper, we discuss the abolition of car taxes rule in context of California - one of the major and highly populated city of United States of America.
History: In 1935, the Motor Vehicle License Fee Act established a state car tax of 1.75 percent of the value of an automobile in lieu of the personal property tax then assessed on all personal property. The taxes collected under this act were limited to state purposes, including highways. The personal property tax was subsequently abolished, but the car tax remained. In 1948, the fee was raised to two percent. In 1957, the law was clarified to limit the use of these funds for law enforcement, regulation and control of highway traffic, and other state purposes.
In 1988, the law was amended to allow the use of car taxes for any purpose, and in 1993, 25 percent of the funds were earmarked for realignment of health and social services programs. Thus, any linkage between the car tax and roads was obliterated. Worse for taxpayers, in 1991 California's car tax was radically restructured to provide additional tax resources to balance the state budget as part of an $8.2 billion increase in taxes and fees that year. Prior to 1991, automobile owners were charged on a ten-year depreciation schedule, based on the original purchase price of the automobile. The 1991 legislation made three dramatic changes. First, the depreciation schedule was stretched from ten to eleven years. Second, the act provided for a permanent tax on fully depreciated automobiles amounting to 0.3 percent of the price in perpetuity beginning in the 11th year. Third, the new law triggered a restarting of the depreciation schedule, virtually assuring that very few cars would ever reach the bottom of the schedule. The net effect was a $60 per year increase in the VLF paid for an average car.
Another historical note about the 1991 tax increase is also relevant to this discussion. The overall tax increase that year was the largest by any state in the history of the nation. According to revenue estimates made at the time, the entire package amounted to $8.2 billion in additional taxes and fees, or roughly $1,100 per family. The tax increase, enacted in the midst of a recession, broke the back of California's economy. Although some of those taxes were repealed or expired, many are still on the books. Thus, California's Vehicle License Fee began as a substitute for the personal property tax. When the personal property tax was abolished, the tax was maintained under a new name. It was originally limited to state purposes, principally for highways and highway-related services. Today, it is devoted to purposes entirely unrelated to highways. It now consumes $3.3 billion of California family earnings, at a time when they are paying $3.6 billion more than they would have paid without the 1991 tax increases.
Meanwhile, the onerous and outdated automobile tax has proven to be highly unpopular across the country. In the 1997 Virginia gubernatorial campaign, Republican James Gilmore's campaign was stalled until he unveiled a proposal to abolish Virginia's car tax. Gilmore won a dramatic victory for Governor and swept a majority of Republicans into the Virginia state Senate. He has now set about to fulfill his signature campaign promise, backed by an overwhelming mandate from Virginia voters. Meanwhile, in Texas, Democrat Gary Mauro is campaigning against Republican Gov. George Bush, Jr., on a platform to abolish the state's sales tax on motor vehicles. Bush opposes the plan. In Georgia, Republican Guy Millner has proposed ending that state's car tax for a saving to taxpayers of $475 million. In South Carolina, Gov. David Beasley proposed in his State of the State address last month to phase out the car tax over a period of six years.
Abolishing the Car Tax: AB 1776
A car represents security of transport. Even if public transport is adequate for most journeys, people still want a car for the odd occasion or emergency. There will always be places and times when public transport doesn't run. The Government could make a contribution immediately by abolishing car tax and increasing fuel taxes to offset the loss of revenue. This would have the added benefit of doing away with an absolutely pointless and tedious administration system. The point is that public transport will never be able to emulate the flexibility of private transport and that at present the car has so many advantages.
The Virginia experience makes a strong case for California to abolish its car tax. By doing so, California could reduce the overall level of taxation to what it would have been without the tax increases imposed during the 1990's, while still providing for some $14 billion in additional general fund revenues in the last eight years. It would abolish a tax that long ago ceased to bear any resemblance to its original purpose and intention. It would remove a strong disincentive in current law that keeps motorists from shedding older, higher polluting automobiles. It would provide a significant spur to economic activity by reducing the cost of new vehicles in California. It would reduce costs to California families of what is a practical necessity in the Golden State: the family car. The problem in doing so is the built-in special interests that depend on the tax. A $4 billion saving to taxpayers is also a $4 billion cut in the governor's proposed budget. In this case, the beneficiaries are local government budgets, which are still recovering from a multi-billion dollar raid by the state government in 1992 and 1993. In order to back-fill this amount, reductions in the proposed state budget would have to be taken from non-education funds under constitutional provisions enacted by Proposition 98. The "non-98" side of the budget also funds the Department of Corrections, a sacred legislative cow.
In abolishing California's car tax, it would be a desirable policy and a practical necessity:
 To hold local governments harmless by back-filling their losses with state funds
 To work within the revenue projections of the Department of Finance
 Not to affect Proposition 98 funds for schools
 Not to affect the administration's proposed funding for state prisons
 Not to affect the administration's proposed budget reserve.
The next question is how the funds should be preserved, protected and restored to local governments to replace the VLF taxes they will be losing. This is a particularly important question, since Proposition 47 of 1986 constitutionally earmarked VLF subventions for local governments, providing a relatively tamper-proof and expanding source of local revenues. Even though VLF subventions could be redirected away from local governments in future budgets simply by using them to supplant other sources of local funding, a suitable replacement to the VLF is an understandably important objective of local government.
AB 1776 establishes a strong protection against state government raids by phasing in a dedicated portion of future sales tax revenues to replace the lost VLF subventions. To protect against anomalies occurring between high-sales tax and low sales tax communities, the replacement revenues are placed into a dedicated state sales and use tax account that will replace lost VLF subventions on a dollar-for-dollar basis. When fully phased in, the sales tax rate required to replace the lost revenues will lock, and the subventions from the fund will naturally expand as the economy expands. Indeed, this reform greatly enhances the flexibility of local governments to use these funds by eliminating the straightjacket effect of the 1991 re-alignment legislation. Furthermore, to provide additional protection for local governments, the sales tax provisions of AB 1776 will be placed in a "Local Government Independence Act," a constitutional amendment to be introduced in the Assembly later this month.
Californians pay the third highest combination of automobile taxes in the nation, and they pay $3.6 billion more in overall taxes than they would have without the net tax increases of the 1990's. The largest portion of the automobile taxes is the Vehicle License Fee, also called the "car tax," accounting for an average of $185 per automobile annually. None of this money is used for highways or highway-related services. It goes instead to local government general funds and local health and social services programs. Abolishing California's car tax would make California families whole for the massive tax increases they suffered in 1991. In this period of economic growth, abolition of the car tax could be done while protecting local government from any revenue loss, preserving state funding for schools and prisons, and maintaining the proposed budget reserve. It would require an overall reduction in the 1998-99 proposed general fund budget of just 9/10ths of one percent, or no budget reductions at all if additional revenues materialize in the May Revise.

The Smart Girls' Guide to Buying a Car

Buying a new car, or a car that's new to you, can be a minefield. Women are traditionally vulnerable to con men when buying cars, taking their cars for a service or anything else related to motoring for that matter. Although we'd like to think that times have changed, and in the most part they have, there are still car sales people waiting for an innocent looking female to trot through the door. This applies to men too, so don't be offended! At CoverGirl Car Insurance we want you to get the best deal, cheap insurance and above all a great car. So, we've compiled a concise guide to what can be one of the most expensive purchases you'll have to make.

Article Source:
The first thing you will need to do is decide whether you want a new or used car. You probably have a make and model in mind already, so it's best to do as much research into the car as possible. You can look in trade guides and on the internet to get some ideas about the production and engineering of your desired car. If you go to the dealer armed with this information then you will know what to look for and will know about any parts of the car that are particularly expensive to replace. Whilst doing your research you could also look out for any common problems with your car. For example certain vehicles have notoriously bad electrics and you could be left having to pay a large bill to have them repaired.
So what's the best bet, new or used?
Buying a new car
Buying a new car gives you the peace of mind that your car hasn't been rescued from an accident and 'cut and shut' (more about this later). Plus you don't have to worry about service history and recurring problems.
If you decide to buy a new car then you have three options. You can either buy from dealership, from a broker or by personal import from Europe. There are pros and cons to each option so you should look carefully at each to decide what's best for you. The benefits and pitfalls of each are as follows:
Dealership: Many dealers offer cheap finance schemes with frequent special offers, you can take the car for a test drive and you also may be able trade in your existing car. This is often a more expensive option so it's worth looking around.
Broker: It is often cheaper to buy through a broker and relatively easy to organise. You may not be able trade your car in.
Personal imports from Europe: Cheaper in the majority of cases. However this is not the easiest way to buy a car. You'll have to put in quite a bit of work.
What to check when you collect your car
We advise that you check your new car over before you drive off the forecourt. There are a few key things to check:
o That you've got a copy of the dealers pre-delivery inspection form
o Check that all lights, electrics, sound systems, alarms, door locks and windscreen wipers work
o Check for any scratches and check that there is no damage to the interior
o Check you've got the spare tyre and any tools that are supposed to come with the car
o Make sure you've got the manual and service book
Buying a used car
When you buy a used car there are a few more pitfalls to look out for but you can bag yourself a bargain if you look in the right place. It can also be great fun deciding whether you want a sexy classic like an Alfa Romeo Spider or a bargain run-around like a Ford Ka. Whether you chose to buy from a dealer or from the private market you'll need see the history of the car. This is really important. You can either buy from a franchised dealer, a used car dealer or privately. Here are some of the pros of buying from each:
Franchised dealer: One of the safest places to buy a car. You'll get a great choice from a franchise. You can get used or nearly new cars. A franchised dealership also might know the entire history of the car. They will also provide you with a warranty, so if anything goes wrong you can take it back and they will fix it.
Used car dealer: They will usually have checked that there is no bad history or outstanding finance. Most dealers have an excellent reputation but you should exercise some caution and again, do your own research about the type of car you've chosen. You will usually get at least a 3 month warranty from a used car dealer. But check to see what it covers. Service items like tyres, exhausts and brake pads are not usually covered.
Private purchase: Best place for an excellent bargain. This is the riskiest way to buy a car as the car could have been involved in an accident, and might not belong to the seller. You should ask to meet at the sellers' home or work and ask the following questions:

Image is Everything - Secrets to Cleaning Car Fleets

ecent survey indicated that clean Taxi Cabs Fleets have higher tip rates and repeat customers. How do you wash a taxicab? You do them four at a time and you go up and over and up and over when you are drying them. If they have a little taxi cab sign, dry that last. But you do the rest of the car the way you do a regular car. The only difference is you are going to spray three, four, five, sometimes six cars at a time. Then another crewmember is going to follow behind you and do all the windows really well. You do a quick vacuum with a taxicab. Seriously, you do not want to be in that taxicab for more then a minute or a minute and a half. Now most taxicabs are usually scratched and they look like crap. This is something you are going to have to deal with. This is just the way they are going to look which is good for you because they are not expecting a perfect job. They just want them to look clean because they have their logo on them. Taxi companies are very low budget operations and low cost will get you the account. Some taxicabs are owned by independent contractors. You will need to charge more since the volume is not there. Staging areas at big airports are a good place to find lots of taxicabs.
Rent-a-cars these days are mostly small, tiny cars that get really good gas mileage. They are Toyota Tercels, Ford Contours and Dodge Neons and things like that. You can wash a Dodge Neon in your sleep in about three minutes. Really easy to clean, really, really easy and that is important. You want some accounts that are easy. Three dollars is fair for exteriors, five dollars for in and out is fine. It is important to have efficiency when washing rent-a-cars. No more than two minutes for vacuuming. You only want to clean the windows that are dirty. You do not want to clean all of the windows on a rent-a-car, just where you see fingerprints. You want to wipe off the dash really quick, wipe around the center console and use cleaner on the sticky stuff. Hit the inside windows that are dirty, wash the outside. You want to do them five, six at a time and you want to dry them off real fast, make sure the windows are clean and go to the next car. Rent-a-cars are really good money. You want to charge an extra two dollars for taking out carpet stains. Use some Folex cleaner or advanced carpet stain remover, some kind of a little carpet brush and a towel to wipe up whatever you precipitate at the top of the carpet after you have got it wet. The carpet remover should come off on the towel. There will always be trash in rent-a-cars, a lot of trash. You should have a bucket ready that you just put trash in and move it from car to car. Dump it before you leave. Usually rent-a-cars will have a Dempsey Dumpster around the back where you can dump all of your trash.
Rent-a-car companies are very careful and exacting as to what times of day they want their cars washed. They may have a whole bunch of vehicles in on Monday mornings and want you to do cars on Monday mornings. You are going to have to do the cars at that time. They are probably going to want them done before eight o'clock in the morning. So if you are doing the cars before eight o'clock in the morning and there are twenty or thirty rent-a-cars, it is quite serious that you get them all done in time. The rent-a-car company is paying you so they do not have to drive them to the car wash. It is rather important that you get them done on time. It is really easy to get them all done if you work efficiently. You are doing them six at a time. If you have twenty cars to do, you need to have them done by eight thirty to nine o'clock and you are doing them six at a time, you should have twenty-four cars done in an hour if you are really flying through them and you have the right crew. So pay attention to this. You can afford to do the cars for five dollars each because the job comes out to about one hundred dollars an hour. Think about this for a second. Think about the time and efficiency and how fast can you do them. This attitude is what will help you pick up the rent-a-car company accounts. If you can do them very, very quickly and you can do them not perfectly but good enough to make them happy, there is a lot of money in rent-a-car washing. Our crews in other towns already wash for: Budget, Avis, Dollar, Hertz, Enterprise and generally can afford to wash them and retain a profit at only $5.00 per vehicle.
Police Cars
It is time to talk about police cars. We just saw a police car go the other way with his lights on. In any case, police cars, how do you wash a police car? Well first of all, you wash it like you would wash any normal car but you want to make sure you clean the light bar really well. You do not want to spray water inside the light bar, you will screw up the electronics. You also do not want to, but some of our guys love to do it, spray water inside the PA speaker on the front of the police car that is mounted by the bumper. The reason they like to do that is because it burns them outs and gives them a short. So, you should not do that. Now under the seats of a police car you find all kinds of cool stuff. Best to hand it over to the authorities and not smoke it yourself. You will find crazy stuff under the seats of a police car where you are going to have to clean. Depending on how you feel you can either vacuum the stuff up or put it into a little bag and give it to the watch commander. You need to dust the radios inside of the police car, but you have to be careful not to turn any knobs. There are always bugs on the light bars, but you cannot blast off the bugs as much as you would like to. You really need to soap them off and not blast them off. Sometimes the light bars get real brittle on the older police cars. You can actually blast right through them. I have done it before.
For some reason police like to go 4 X 4' ing when they are going through center dividers in order to catch a terrible criminal such as a speeder. They will go off road and do whatever; maybe they are just having fun. So you have to make sure that you clean all the mud off the police cars, they are a little bit muddier then most cars. The bottoms of the police cars are always muddy and they are going to need hand soaping. Police cars are often black and white. Usually the white part is where the door is so the policeman knows where to get in. The rest of the car is black. Now the part of the car that is black, remember it is black. If you are doing police cars in the sun and you are trying to do them three at a time, you may have a little problem getting to all of them. Some cities have police cars that are all white cars or all green cars or a mixture and that makes it a little bit easier.
There are certain additional things you have to watch for when cleaning police cars. Do not have a bunch of stuff out of your truck when you are washing a line of police cars. Someone may run out of the building and want to take their car. If you cannot move the truck in time you will really frustrate that officer. He wants to look official and squeal the tires out of the parking lot so you may as well just let him do whatever he wants to do.
Driving School Cars
Driving school cars are basically just like rent-a-car companies. The only difference is you want to spend a little more time on the dash board and a lot of time on the windows. You probably need to get five or six dollars each. This is giving them a deal because normally you charge ten dollars for in and out
