Is there a grace period for renewing my drivers license and car tags?
Can I bring my plate in for a refund if my car breaks down or if I just decide to park it?
No. In order to refund a plate you must dispose of the vehicle, signing the title over to another party. Once you refund a plate it cannot be undone. If you didn't actually dispose of the vehicle and want to tag it again later, you have to bring the title in and pay back to the day of the tag refund with penalties.
Can I make payments to your office for my property taxes?
Sorry, we are not set up for escrow.
