The Alabama Department of Revenue announced Monday motor vehicle registration deadlines have been extended in response to the financial impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Jackson County Revenue Commissioner Jeff Arnold confirmed the news, saying deadline for annual registration and renewal of motor vehicles during the months of March, April and May have been extended through June 19.
The extension includes vehicles purchased or acquired whereby the registration requirement falls between March 17 and June 19; vehicles registered pursuant to the International Registration Plan; and those who pay property taxes on vehicles.
Registrants will also be granted an extension to surrender license plates in compliance with the mandatory liability insurance law.
Penalty charges related to vehicle registration or renewal during March, April or May will not be charged until June 22.
“All I can answer for is the penalty charges,” said Arnold. “I can’t speak for law enforcement whether you could get a ticket or not.”
