car tax calculated from which weight?

Hello,
I am going to pay car tax, and office sent me a bill for weight, that takes into account "Gesamtgewicht", which adds 400 kg to the "Leergewicht", which already is 90% tanked and with 75kg person included. Since I am driving it mostly alone, full weight scenario is unreal, but car tax is calculated from this attribute. Is this OK? I am in Vaud, if there are any cantonal differences.
Thanx

Oops!
Apparently if you had the EUR1something you should have been exempt from that...
stamped movement certificate EUR 1 (1)
Here it is to whip out the wallet:
Customs: about CHF 15 per 100 kg gross vehicle weight (only if there is no EUR1, with EUR1, there are no customs fees)

Re: car tax calculated from which weight?

hmm, I have the impression we are talking about different fees. I am not talking about importing car, but about annual tax for my car, that I already own, paid to bureau of traffic (can't remember correct french term).
And I am not sure what criteria applies for this EUR1, but my car is older (2003), and it does not go under emission limit for 50% discount of this tax (in Vaud).
