About motor vehicle or boat excise taxes - see this publication -

The valuation for Motor Vehicle Excise tax purposes is based on a percentage of the manufacturer's suggested factory list price, new. In the year prior to the year of manufacture; for example a 2009 vehicle registered in 2008; the valuation would be 50% of the factory list price; in it's first year (2009 in 2009) the valuation would be 90% of the factory list price; in the second year (2009 in 2010) the valuation would be 60% of the factory list price; in the third year; 40% of the factory list price; in the fourth year 25% of the factory list price and in the fifth year and older, 10% of the original factory list price.

The tax rate for this tax is $25.00 per thousand dollars of value.
