Ad Valorem Taxes


Ad valorem tax is a value tax that is assessed annually and must be paid at the time of registration. Payment of ad valorem taxes is a prerequisite to receiving a tag or renewal decal.

Ad valorem taxes are due each year on all vehicles, including vehicles that are not operational, even if a tag or registration renewal is not being applied for.

Fees & Penalties

Tax amounts vary according to the vehicle make and model and the tax district in which the owner resides.

Taxes must be paid by the last day of your registration period to avoid a 10% penalty.

Ad valorem tax receipts are distributed to the state, county, schools, and cities. These levying authorities use this revenue to fund their general operations.
