Refunds

  • In order to refund registration and property tax on a vehicle, the vehicle must be sold, traded in, or disposed of.  If you still have possession of the vehicle, a refund will not be issued.  
    • The exception to this is if you have moved out of state and registered your vehicle in a different state
  • All refunds issued are prorated and are determined by the number of months remaining until renewal
  • No refunds under $5.00 will be issued
  • Refunds are calculated from the date your completed application is received in our office, not the date of sale
