New legislation that will become effective July 1, 2009 will change the penalty for most vehicle owners who do not timely title or register their vehicles.

Beginning July 1:

  • if a vehicle’s registration is not renewed after the last day of the month following the tag expiration date, penalty will be assessed in the amount of $1 per day.  The penalty cannot exceed $100.
