The standard of assessment when levying taxes on the registration of real estate, ships, airplanes, automobiles and construction machinery is their value at the time of registration. In this case, the value at the time of registration is the value reported by the applicant; however, when this value is not reported by the applicant or the value is less than the fair market price, the latter is chosen as the value. If the actual acquisition price has been used when assessing the acquisition tax, the actual acquisition price is also used to assess the registered rights tax.
