I am so confused about the changes to the car tax that when into effect this year. I believe it started in April. 

I know the rates are based on CO2 emissions but how do I find out what my charges will actually be? 

The only thing I know is that 51g and 5g per kilometre will be £25 for the first year.

The more your car polutes, the higher price you will pay. It will go up each year as well so you can be paying £25 this year, but £50+ next year. They don't really outline any caps. They are trying to encourage more people to drive electricity with these fees. What makes me mad though is that this forces people with less income to need to drive electric. Eventually, they won't be able to afford a choice. So what will be left are only wealthy people being able to enjoy petrol-powered vehicles.

I just looked into this and read the same thing. It seems like things will just continue to rise. I heard that the most pollutant vehicles will be looking at a £3000 or more fine/fee per year.

Thanks @mrshane 

I was not sure what was going on with that. I was confused by what I had read and heard about it but you cleared everything up. That is crazy how much they will charge for some cars but I understand they are trying to discourage petrol driving.

The prices don't seem to make much sense right now but this is a new law. I would imagine things will be more clear-cut and better explained down the road. 

I just hope they don't keep raising them year after year and they cap it at some point.

You and me both. It just seems criminal to be doing this right now with everyone having to budget everything else. Petrol is up, renting is up, utilities, food... It is nightmare.
