How is excise calculated?

The rate is $25 per thousand in value.  This is the standard rate for the entire state.

The value of a motor vehicle for excise purposes is determined by the Commissioner of Revenue at varying percentages of the manufacturer’s list price in the year of manufacture as follows:

-In the year preceding the designated year of manufacture 50%
-In the year of manufacture 90%
-In the 2nd year 60%
-In the 3rd year 40%
-In the 4th year 25%
-In the 5th and succeeding years 10%
Condition and market value are not considerations in determining the value, not is the age after the 5th year.
