Specific Ownership Tax

The specific ownership tax was enacted in 1937 and is contained in Article X, Section 6, of the Colorado Constitution.  The tax is based on the value of the vehicle and is paid each year that a vehicle is registered in Colorado.  It is imposed on cars, trucks, trailers, mobile homes, and special mobile machinery.  Further information on the specific ownership tax is available in Legislative Council Staff's Issue Brief on the Specific Ownership Tax.
