How much road tax will I have to pay for my car?
If a car is registered on your name you will have to pay road tax.
How much road tax you will have to pay depends on several factors:
- the type of car;
- the province you are living in;
- the type of fuel;
- the weight of your car;
- the CO 2 discharge of the car;
- the age of the car.
For a car older than 40 years the road tax is nil. The same with a car which has a CO 2 discharge of nil. Reductions are in place for cars with a reduced CO 2 discharge.
Part of the road tax is based on the tax rate of the province. That is why road tax differs per province.
The type of fuel is important. The highest rate is applicable to diesel, followed by gasoline and the lowest rate is for petrol.
