The Washington Vehicle Tax Initiative, also known as I-1036 or the Car Tabs Initiative, 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-1036, an Initiative to the People, was sponsored by Tim Eyman.

The official ballot title for I-1036 said, "Measure No. 1036 concerns charges relating to motor vehicles. This measure would set annual vehicle fees at a total of $30, repeal or reduce certain taxes and fees, calculate vehicle taxes based on depreciated purchase price, and require retirement of certain bonds."

I-1036 is similar to another initiative filed by Eyman, the Washington $30 Car Tabs Initiative I-1042 (2009).

Ballot measure summary

According to the description prepared by the Washington Secretary of State:

"This measure would set basic vehicle license charges at $25 annually, plus a $5 filing fee. Certain taxes and fees would be repealed or reduced. A valuation schedule based on purchase price and depreciation would be used to calculate motor vehicle taxes. The measure would require certain transportation authority bonds to be retired, and the taxes pledged to repay these bonds would be discontinued on their retirement date or March 31, 2010, whichever occurs first."
