Car tags can be renewed in the office, on-line at DOR Online Tag Renewal, by phone 1-877-496-0249 or by mail.
Payments received after the due date (birthday of primary owner) will be assessed a late fee equal to 25% of the tag fee plus 10% of the tax. Pre-bills are sent as a courtesy, failure to receive your pre-bill does not negate your responsibility to renew by your birthday. Click here for an example of a pre-bill.
