ADOT offers easy way to access vehicle tax details

Tax time is here again and if you’re in the midst of preparing your 2011 income tax return, you might want to check out an online tool from ADOT's Motor Vehicle Division.

It’s called the EZ Vehicle Fee Recap and offers a free, easy way for you to access your vehicle tax details. Arizona vehicle owners can view their own report of registration fees and taxes paid in the prior calendar year.

While vehicle owners are advised to consult with a tax-preparation professional or seek guidance from the Internal Revenue Service or Arizona Department of Revenue, the EZ Vehicle Fee Recap Program provides a simple report of registration fees that can be viewed or printed.

To begin the easy process, the user just has to enter their name, Arizona license or customer identification number and then follow the screen prompts.

The report will contain fees paid for vehicle license tax; registration (personal and commercial), air quality, air quality compliance, emission in lieu, weight, motor carrier, use, postage and handling, penalty, serial number, specialty plate, transfer, processing, diesel, or Department of Revenue/sales tax. And, take note – information is transmitted securely using encryption technology.
