The Washington Vehicle Tax Initiative, also known as I-1049, was intended by its sponsors to qualify for the November 2009 ballot in Washington, but did not ultimately qualify. Its sponsors would have had to collect a minimum of 241,153 signatures of registered voters by 5:00 p.m. on July 3, 2009 to qualify.

I-1049, an Initiative to the People, was sponsored by Tim Eyman, Leo Fagan, M.J. Fagan.

The official ballot title for I-1049 said, "Initiative Measure No. 1049 concerns charges relating to motor vehicles. This measure would set annual vehicle fees at $30, lower dealer service fees, repeal or reduce certain taxes and fees, base vehicle taxes on depreciated purchase price, and require retirement of certain bonds."

Certain transportation authority bonds would be retired and the taxes pledged to repay them would be discontinued on their retirement date or March 31, 2010, whichever occurs first."
