Why did I receive a tax bill for a motor vehicle I don’t own anymore?
The grand list year runs from October 1st through September 30th each year. The DMV furnishes us a list of all vehicles registered on October 1st. You are then billed for this time period July 1st. If at anytime after October 1st ownership changes, your bill may be prorated to the month of transfer. In order for this prorate to be processed, you must bring in proof of transfer of ownership. This includes, but is not limited to, a returned plate receipt from the DMV, a bill of sale, a receipt from a junkyard, a letter from your insurance company declaring a total loss, or copy of a purchase agreement showing your old vehicle as a trade in vehicle. All documentation must be dated and refer to the vehicle by make, model, and VIN number.
