Oregon Vehicle Privilege Tax at Sheppard Volkswagen

What is the Oregon Vehicle Privilege Tax?

If you have been shopping for a new Volkswagen model in the Eugene, Oregon area this year, you have probably come across the Oregon Privilege Tax. The Oregon Privilege Tax is a one-half to one percent tax issued on all new vehicles sold in the state of Oregon. At Sheppard Motors, this tax appears as an additional cost in the total price of your vehicle. Since January 1, 2018, the vehicle privilege tax has affected the prices of vehicles with 7,500 miles or less logged and a gross weight up to 26,000 pounds. The tax is based on the vehicle's retail value, causing an increase in the price you pay at the end of your transaction. While the tax is under review by the Oregon Supreme Court, the tax is still being upheld. This means that all new vehicles, including Volkswagen lease options, are subject to a one-half to one percent tax.
