INTRO – The first bills under the “Tax and Tag” program come due Sunday. George Olsen has more.
The state’s new “Tax and Tag” program bills at the same time vehicle registration renewal as well as vehicle property taxes from counties. Vehicle owners with a “9”… for the month of September… on their license tag are the first to pay the combined bill. The notices for those bills come due September 1. Each month more people will fall under the combined bill with all state vehicle owners expected to be covered under Tax and Tag by mid-2014. The program is the result of a law passed by the General Assembly back in 2005. I’m George Olsen.
