After six weeks, DC Title Tax Calculator seems to be working

The DC DMVês new Vehicle Title Tax Calculator has been up and operating now for six weeks and appears to be up to the task for dealers. The Calculator was launched April 1 after DC DMV regulators sorted through operational questions and issues with dealer tag and title processors facilitated by WANADA.

The Calculator is based on the NADA Used Car Guide for the Eastern U.S. and must be used for all vehicle sales, new and used. Only when a vehicle value is not available in the Title Tax Calculator such as when the calculator system is down may the dealer compute the tax based on the actual sale pricing of the vehicle.
