Credit or Refunds for Fees

Credit or Refunds for Fees

When you sell your vehicle, complete a sold notice right away. In addition, you may be eligible to receive credit for registration fees (vehicle license tax) previously paid. 

Don’t wait to apply for the credit!  The amount of credit is based on when the vehicle registration expires, so waiting reduces the amount.

Note: You are not eligible for a registration credit if you register the vehicle in another state. 

How To Apply 

Go to to complete the sold notice and request a registration credit.  The credit is applied to your customer account.  You can request a payout (disbursement) of the funds in your customer account or apply them to future MVD services.

By law, there is a $12 processing fee applied to a registration credit.

Once you have requested a registration credit, the vehicle will no longer be registered.
