Road tax/Налог на дороги

Spring in Japan is not only the time to enjoy the views of sakura, but also the time to pay the road tax. The owner of every car must pay money to the government. The tax for 2012 is determined using the following tables:

Весна для Японии это не только время любоваться сакурой, но и время платить дорожный налог. Налог платится с каждой машины. Величина налога на 2012 год определяется по следующим таблицам:

Small car (yellow license plate)

Маленький автомобиль (с желтым номерным знаком)
5 passengers, private use
Частный автомобиль, 5 пассажиров
7,200 yen
5 passengers, business use
Коммерческий автомобиль, 5 пассажиров
5,500 yen
 Private truck
Частный грузовик
4,000 yen
Business truck
Коммерческий грузовик
3,000 yen

Here are two cars with yellow license plates. They are not very big.

Вот так выглядят машины с желтым номерным знаком. Они совсем небольшие.



There are tax breaks for so called "eco" cars. To be classified as such, the car must have a sticker with stars on the rear windshield. The amount of the discount varies from 25 to 75 percent and can repeat for not more than 5 years. Here is an example of a sticker:

На экономичные ("эко") машины есть налоговые льготы. Чтобы подпадать под льготу, на машине должна быть сзади наклейка со звездочками. Скидка на налог может достигать 75 процентов от базовой ставки и может продолжаться до 5-ти лет. Вот такая вот наклейка:



This means that for a basic model Toyota Camry with a 2.5 liter engine, an owner must pay yearly at least 45000 yen (if there are no discounts).

Так что владелец простой Камри с объемом двигателя 2,5 литра должен заплатить в 2012 году 45000 иен налога (если нет скидок).

  1. Do they have property tax and sales tax too?

  2. Yes, they have. The sales tax is 5% country-wide (with plans to increase it to 10% soon). There are property taxes too, but the amount depends on the size of the house, type of the house, size of land and so on.
