I moved from CA to MA in late 2014, and was shocked to get a bill in the mail from the City of Somerville requesting $1000 for excise tax on my car. To be frank, what the **** is up with this? I have to pay a tax every year on a car that I've already paid a high amount of tax on already? This is absurd. No wonder everyone owns crappy cars in this state. The horrible state of the roads in MA, coupled with how horrible parking is in this city, and on top of this tax makes me want to sell this car in MA. There goes all of my "fuel savings" ... where are the MA perks? Anyone I can write to about this, where I'm sure my complaint will fall on deaf ears?
