    Tip for Tax Season
    Your Ownership Tax Receipt Info 

    -

    The Motor Vehicle Registration Card was redesigned last year and you may not have noticed the Ownership Tax amount now appears on the reverse side.  When filing your Income Tax, simply look on the reverse side under “Specific Own Tax” for the amount you paid.

    The State redesigned the MV Registration Card to show “…all statutory and regulatory required information, as well as display taxes and fees in a manner that provides transparency to the vehicle owner on exactly what taxes and fees are being assessed.”

    We hope this “tip” is helpful. Please contact our office should you have any questions,
    719-520-6240.
