I never had to pay that bs VLT before because I'm active duty, but my wife does...
And to register her 09 G8 for one year is like 500 dollars. Worse yet, we're moving to Texas in 5 months where registration is like 70 bucks, so essentially we're paying 500 bucks for 5 months of registration.
And yet despite all these exorbitant taxes (sales tax here isn't cheap either, like 7.9%) they are still one of the most mismanaged (financially) states in the country.
Just goes to show you, the more money you give the government the more they spend I guess.
