Do I have to pay the entire tax bill if I no longer own the vehicle?

If you did not own the vehicle on October 1st, you are not responsible for that Grand List bill, but you must provide this office with proper documentation that you did not own the vehicle. If you disposed of the vehicle after October 1st and before the next September 1st, you may be eligible to have the bill prorated upon presentation of proper proof. Prorates are based on the month in which the vehicle was disposed.

Vehicle tax bills can only be prorated if proper documentation is provided to this office. Documentation must show that the vehicle was sold, totaled, junked, or registered out-of-state. (The license plate receipt alone is not sufficient proof that the vehicle was disposed of). View "Acceptable Motor Vehicle Adjustments and Proof" under Motor Vehicles Information and Forms page.
