ADOR Further Extends February Deadlines for Motor Vehicle Registration, Renewal, and Transfer, and Vehicle Property Tax Payment

MONTGOMERY, March 6, 2015— State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee has announced that the February motor vehicle registration, renewal, transfer and vehicle property tax payment deadlines have been further extended through March 13 for all Alabama residents affected by county office closings due to severe weather conditions beginning Feb. 25 and again on March 5.


Alabama vehicle owners whose registration month is February will not be subject to delinquent penalties and interest for late vehicle registration or for late payment of vehicle property tax, provided the registrations are completed during the extension period which runs through March 13.


The extension also applies to the payment of property taxes on vehicles registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP); however, it does not apply to IRP motor vehicle registrations and renewals for Alabama–based vehicles, as these registrations and renewals are processed by the ADOR.


The February registration renewal extension also applies to individuals who have recently purchased or otherwise acquired a vehicle, but have not registered their newlyacquired vehicle within the 20day registration period. This affects vehicles purchased or otherwise acquired, whereby the 20day registration requirement falls during the period of Feb. 25 through Feb. 27, and March 5 and 6.
