I just paid $185.00 to register a $1000.  car about a month ago.. Our taxes are slightly lower than King county taxes are.

    And as of Feb 18 you have to buy plates and tags even if they (plates and tags) were bought by previous owner just before you purchased car.. 

 

There is no "set fee" in Washington since it depends on exact location of where vehicle is being registered because each county and city is allowed to add on their public transportation / roads  fees if they wish.

You can get around this if you're buying the car from a  relative. I went in and told them it was from my brother in law and didn't have to buy plates or tabs.
