Registration Fees Explained

You always start with the Town Clerk when registering a car. The Clerk prepares the registration, and the applicant pays a personal property tax based on the value of the vehicle.

The motor vehicle permit fee is based on the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) or the original list price of the vehicle without options.

The permit fee for the current model year is $18/$1000 of the list price. The rate then drops in $3 increments as follows:

Year 2$15/$1000
Year 3$12/$1000
Year 4$9/$1000
Year 5$6/$1000
Year 6$3/$1000

In New Hampshire, cars are registered in the birth month of the owner, and the tax is pro-rated from the date of registration to the birth month.

The Clerk prepares the application for the New Hampshire Certificate of Title if necessary.
