Tax on road vehicles: the calculation method

The following provides a summary of the main information concerning the car tax.
The new car tax is applicable since January 1, 2007. The changes entered into force in 2013. These include the introduction of a minimum annual fee fixed at 30€. This concerns notably the "vehicles of categories M1, M2 and M3 powered exclusively by an electric motor or a motor powered by a fuel cell," as well as any vehicle whose tax is up to now less than 30€. The reduction of 50€ for diesel vehicles of particulate emissions are equal to or less than 10 mg /km is furthermore deleted. Hybrid vehicles powered by a piston engine combined with an electric motor or a fuel cell, are taxed according to the fuel system (petrol or diesel).
There are 2 main methods for calculating the tax.
   

For vehicles registered as from 1st January 2001 (category M1) 

Formula computation is the following: tax (in euros) =a*b*c
A = the value of the CO2 emissions in g /km (information provided by the manufacturer on the European certificate of conformity).
B = a multiplier: 0.9 for cars with a diesel engine, 0.6 for cars with an engine other than diesel.
C = represents a factor of 0.5 for vehicles whose CO2 is less than 90 g /km and which increases to 0.10 for each category of additional 10 g of CO2.
   

For vehicles registered before 1st January 2001 (category M1) or those whose CO2 is unknown

The car tax is calculated based on engine size and raise, for each whole category or started from 100 cm3 of displacement, to:
 
Cylinder capacity Diesel alternative fuels
1 - 1600 cm3 6,00 € 6,00 €
1601 - 2000 cm3 7,00 € 7,00 €
2001 - 3000 cm3 10,50 € 9,50 €
3001 - 4000 cm3  
13,50 € 11,50 €
4001 cmet plus
15,00 €  
12,50 €

   

For mopeds, motorcycles, tricycles and quadricycles (cat L) 

the tax due is as follows: 
 Cylinder capacity  Annuel fee
 1 - 125 cm3  0 €
 126 - 600 cm3  25 €
 601 - 1300 cm3  50 €
 1301 cmet plus  75 €
    

For historic cars

Historic cars registered for the first time as of 1st January 1950 and the first matriculation rise more than 25 years are subject to an annual flat fee of 25€; vehicles registered for the first time before 1950 are tax exempt.

For motorcycles that meet these criteria, the annual flat fee is 15€.

Article 53 of the Law of September 22, 2006 says that if the tax is not paid, the vehicle can be immobilised or impounded at the request of the customs and excise administration.

And even more interesting, article 54!
" Technical control bodies for road vehicles (author’s note: understand SNCT) refuse the access to periodic roadworthiness tests for vehicles which are validly registered if the deadline for paying the tax exceeds 60 days."

Reimbursement of the tax sticker

When the introduction of temporary or definitive deregistration, including in the case of a transcription of a vehicle subject to tax, the overpaid tax can be refunded under the following conditions:
  • The amount of the tax refund must exceed 1€;
  • The tax sticker must be delivered or sent to the competent customs and excise administration within 60 days after the end of its validity with indication of the IBAN number of a bank account of a licensed financial institution in Luxembourg;
  • The recipient of the Customs and Excise reimburse the overpaid tax in proportion to 1/365 by unopened day of the annual fee to the bank account specified by the debtor. The reimbursement amount is rounded down to the next lower euro.

The date to be taken into account in calculating the amount of tax to pay is that of the temporary or definitive deregistration or the transcription of the vehicle registered in the database of the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure.

The global annual fees for historical vehicles are not refundable.
