Oklahoma State Question No. 691 (2000)
The official ballot summary reads:
This measure would change vehicle registration fees and taxes. It would change the annual registration fee to a flat fee based on the number of years registered. The fee would be $85 for years one through four, $75 for years five through eight, $55 for years nine through twelve, $35 for years thirteen through sixteen, and $15 for years seventeen and over. The method of calculating vehicle excise tax would change. The change would base the excise tax on the actual sales price of the vehicle instead of the existing arbitrary formula. The rate applied to used vehicles could be lower than the rate for new vehicles. Schools, counties and cities would receive no less than they received during the previous fiscal year. This measure would reduce tag costs for recreational vehicles. This measure would be effective October 1, 2000.
