Paying vehicle tax

Service Description

If a motor vehicle has been registered for you as a private individual or for a company, you generally have to pay motor vehicle tax for this vehicle from the day of registration.

The following vehicles are subject to motor vehicle tax:

  • Passenger cars,
  • motorcycles (motorcycles),
  • motorhomes,
  • motor vehicle trailers,
  • Commercial vehicles, for example
    • trucks,
    • tractors,
    • buses;
  • Light vehicles (three-wheeled and light four-wheeled motorcycles), for example
    • quads,
    • buggies,
    • trikes.

The amount of tax you have to pay depends on various criteria, including

  • the type of vehicle,
  • the date of first registration
  • the type of drive, i.e. the engine of your vehicle,
  • cubic capacity in cm³, i.e. the displacement of the engine,
  • carbon dioxide test value, i.e. the CO2 test value in g/km,
  • whether the vehicle has a seasonal license plate,
  • for commercial vehicles, motorhomes and trailers, the weight of the vehicle;

You can calculate the estimated amount of vehicle tax for your vehicle using the vehicle tax calculator from the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF).

As the owner of the vehicle, you are a tax debtor and must pay the vehicle tax. If you do not pay the vehicle tax, for example because you do not have sufficient funds in your account, the main customs office will take measures to collect the money from you. This also includes enforcement measures.

Under certain circumstances, you may have to pay less vehicle tax or none at all. This applies, for example, to

  • People with severe disabilities,
  • foreign vehicles,
  • purely electric vehicles and
  • cars that produce particularly low emissions.
