Having Trouble Not Dropping F*Bombs

I recently moved out of Arizona. My plates expired in June, but since I moved out of state my insurance was no longer recognized by AZ DOT therefore they sent me notice that my plates would invalidated in 15 days.

I ran around to the Colorado DMV and plated all the vehicles last week. Today I sat down to get my refunds. According to the website I was due about $7 between the 00 Jeep and 99 F250 and a whopping $122 from the van.

Only thing is: "Moving out of state is not eligible for a refund, according to Arizona law."

You must sell, trade-in, or complete the lease on a vehicle to get your money back. As the nice lady on the phone iterated: "You can't get a refund. By law, by moving out of state you've donated that money to the Arizona DOT."

I'm having a very hard time remaining civil.

and then
everything changed

I don't remain civil at times like this. They're stealing your money. Use profanity. Who cares. It's fun! You're not getting it back!

Don't waste your breath. You'll never see the money again.

Move to California sometime if you want to see extreme examples of state bureaucracy in action.

Case in point: I bought a vehicle in Texas in 2003. It was an old POS Dodge minivan I bought for around $4K cash to haul stuff in. I registered it in KS in 2005, then moved it again to CA in 2007. When I got to register it in CA, they wanted to know the original purchase price I paid in TX.

They charged me the difference between the TX sales tax and the CA sales tax, on a purchase made 4 years prior! Same thing later when I bought a new minivan in AZ (long story) and drove it to CA.

Thieving bastards, every last one of them.

I just pay whatever they ask and move on. You can't gain anything by swearing other than a few points of BP.

And don't even get me started on property tax....
Tent camping for now. Dreaming up a new 4x4 SMB. Gas or Diesel?
