DMV to Waive Renewal Fees

Republican State Senator Joel Anderson announced today that late the DMV will not impose new fees on those late to register their vehicles. The announcement comes two months after legislators passed a special bill which ordered the DMV to stop sending renewal notices to car owners throughout the state. The bill was intended to save the state money. One month later, state legislators balanced the budget without the extra savings from that special bill.

"The [California] Department of Motor Vehicles has granted an automatic 30-day extension for vehicle registration fees," stated Anderson.

"The delay was intended to provide the legislature extra time to increase DMV renewal fees. As long as you make your DMV payment by mail, on-line, or in person within 30 days of your renewal notice's due date, you will not have to pay any late fees."

Anderson says that law enforcement agencies throughout the state will not issue late registration tickets during the 30-day grace period."

is the reader SERIOUSLY trying to spin this?

the state government told the dmv to stop sending renewal notices because the garbage in sacramento was crossing their fingers hoping that the tax increases from 2009 wouldnt expire on time and that id have to pay $500 instead of $300 for my car renewal.

the great news: they didnt get their way, and now I have $200 more in my pocket.

the way this article is written it makes it sound like

a) the legislature was trying to make a new, fresh move to increase dmv fees, when really, they were trying, praying, hoping etc.. that the TEMPORARY tax increases in 2009 could somehow be extended

b) that the tool-bags in sacramento deserve some kind of PRAISE for balancing the budget without having to extend TEMPORARY tax increases from two years ago

liberal garbage: it never runs out!

================== You are correct. It was a sham move meant to hijack your pocket book so GED public employees could continue receiving their $10 million dollar "retire at age 50" pensions.

Speaking of garbage.... It's the "Wrong for America" right wing conservative, libertarian and TEA Party (Theocratic Evangelical Anarchist Party) that is the garbage that needs to be thrown out. Ever since that old fool Reagan sold the trash of trickle down economics to the gullible and under educated we have been in a decline. IF, and that is a big fat IF, tax cuts for the rich would indeed create jobs, we ought to be awash in them. Especially after all the tax cuts for the rich shoved down our throats. Where is all that trickle down? Gone. THANKS a lot Reagan , Bush and Bush. Remeber Clinton? We had a balanced budget and even a surplus. It is the conservatives who are the real trash and it is time for America to rid herself of that refuse! OBAMA AND A STRAIGHT DEMOCRATIC TICKET IN 2012 AND THEREAFTER.

We have opposite beliefs, but we do agree trickle down was a scam, and that the decline of America started with Raygun, when we went form a creditor nation to the debtor nation. Raygun had HUGE twin deficits-trade and budget-both have caused immense harm to America.

We have been giving huge tax breaks to many Fortune 500 companies, only to see them move jobs overseas-and if that is the result then the tax breaks do indeed need to end.

As for Clinton we did not have a balanced budget-we had social security offline for debt, but took all their money on the books as income. So the budget was not balanced with Clinton, with SS offline. Obama has it on the books.

Obama hasn't done jack for the poor or the middle class, and I voted for him, unless the economy turns that won't happen twice.

On the state level the democrats have destroyed the poor and middle class with regressive taxes (sales/vehicle/excise fees etc) to support compensation packages of gov employes that are 5-20 times larger than the state average in the private sector.

how true Pupster..how long will the public wear blinders about these shenanigans???

Reagan ruined California with his economic trickle down who ha...then he tackled the whole US of A with that wacky nonsense

neither has ever recovered completely :(

trickle down was a fraud. It should have been the OPPOSITE-trickle up!No taxes on anyone making less than say $25K, and then as the income goes into their pocket they SPEND it-trickling it up- and the economy grows.

Since this policy would cover many many people, far more than the top 1-5% it would work much better!

Well, trying to figure out why we didn't get a renewal notice kept all the people busy who could have been sending a notice. When we didn't get ours, being clueless, we thought it was lost in the mail. When we called, we were told not to worry about it. Asking how the cops were going to take all this, we were told that they would know what had happened. How long it will take to straighten it all out would take a consultant to project.

According to the back of my form, there is no grace period for "smogging." Ain't that lovely?

And I thought the state put flim-flammers in the slammers.

============= you ALWAYS pay the reg fee before the deadline, you can smog the vehicle ANYTIME, but the tags won't be renewed until the smog has been done but no late fees will eb applied, but if you mail in the fees after the due date you get hit with the late fees-no late fees apply to late smogging, they just simply dont renew the tags until the smog is done.

At least for once a "temporary" tax actually turned out to be temporary. I never thought I'd see the day. Then Brown wanted to extend them for five years. Hey, if they were extended for that long, they would have been permanent. Can you imagine Sacto giving up that revenue stream and going on short rations five years from now? By then the added sales tax, income tax and motor vehicle tax would have been absolutely essential. Heaven and Earth would have been moved to keep them.

Howard Jarvis had it right so long ago. The only way to get responsible spending from state and local pols is to shut off the money coming in and force them to spend within their income. (I think we'll soon learn that the same thing applies at the federal level.) All the gamesmanship in Sacto to keep those taxes failed. And guess who gets the credit? The Republicans held the line, and didn't blink. And they weren't even in control of the legislature. Before going off on an anti-GOP rant, remember who loves ya', baby.
