Registering a vehicle in the Dominican Republic

Certainly better and more efficient than the "mail" (or lack of mail) service here.

Bob I understand the value of the vehicle determines the cost of the transfer documents?

The value of the vehicle determines the amount of tax to be paid when registering.  So yes it will effect the amount you will pay when  you register it.

Do you know what the rate or percentage is Bob?

No I don't but it is quite a bit. I bet over the 18% ITBS rate and  again based on the value of your car which many times has  nothing to do with the real value but is inflated.  Remember ALL vehicles here are valued at least 35% higher than in the US (Kelly blue book as an example)

Hi, we just went to our lawyer and she wants 250USD plus 2% of the value of the car we want to buy, just to get it into our name!  Is that right?

It sounds is a very reasonable rate she´s giving you

Sounds about right to me too.  2% is the tax.

Yep works of me as well
