How do I figure out how much my taxes will be on a new vehicle I am purchasing?

We have a manual provided to us by the Department of Revenue that shows the value of all vehicles.  We can give you an estimate from our manual by phone, fax or e-mail.  If you want to figure an estimated amount yourself, take the market value (before any rebates, allowances or trade ins) and multiply that by 6.00% if the vehicle will be in your personal name or 10.50% if the vehicle will be in a business name.  After you have done that, you will multiply your answer by the tax rate of the district you live in.  If you need an exact amount, you will need to fax, e-mail or go into the York County Assessor's office and bring a title or bill of sale.

i.e. for Tega Cay:  If the vehicle assessment is $15,000 x 6.00% = $900 of assessed value x .4531 (2015) millage rate = $407.79 tax bill.
