Motor Vehicle Billing
Motor Vehicle taxes are due on the first day of the fourth month following the date the registration expires or on the first day of the fourth month following the last day of the month in which the new registration is applied for.
If this bill is not paid within 30 days, interest will be added (5% for the first month, 3/4% for each additional month). If the bill is not paid within 4 months, a "block" will be placed on the tag so that it cannot be renewed the following year until all unpaid taxes have been collected.
Once your licensed tag has been "blocked" payment must be submitted in cash; no checks will be accepted. Once the bill is paid in full our office will then remove the "block" and you may renew your tag through DMV.
The value of this bill may be appealed to the Assessor within 30 days of the billing date. A taxpayer who wishes to appeal the value must pay the taxes when due.
If a vehicle is sold or destroyed, the taxpayer must make the request for refund within one year from the date of the surrender of license plates to DMV. The pro-ration of motor vehicle taxes can only occur when the following three conditions are met:
1) The owner must transfer the vehicle to a new owner. If DMV does not reflect the new ownership, a notarized bill of sale is required;
2) The plates must be surrendered to the DMV;
3) The receipt from the surrender of the plates (FS-20) must be presented to the motor vehicle billing department within one year from the surrender of plates.
