Arlington Texas Automotive Sales Tax

When purchasing a new or used vehicle here in Texas you can expect the sales tax to start off at 6.25 percent. The reason why we say it starts off at 6.25 percent is because this is just the baseline rate. Specific Texas counties and cities add on their own tax rates on top of the existing 6.25 percent.  

At Classic CDJRF our sales tax rate is 8 percent in total. The city of Arlington adds on its own 1.75 percent tax rate on top of the state’s tax, bringing the total rate from 6.25 percent to 8 percent.  

Arlington Texas Registration and Title Fees
