State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee announced that the January 2014 motor vehicle registration, renewal, transfer and vehicle property tax payment deadlines have been extended through Feb. 10 for all Alabama residents affected by county office closings due to severe winter weather conditions occurring Jan. 28.

Alabama vehicle owners, whose registration month is January, will not be subject to delinquent penalties for late vehicle registration or for late payment of vehicle property tax, provided the registrations are completed during the extension period, which runs through Feb. 10.

In addition, the extension applies to motor vehicle registrations and renewals for Alabama-based vehicles registered pursuant to the International Registration Plan and the payment of property taxes on the IRP vehicles.

The January registration renewal extension also applies to individuals who have recently purchased or otherwise acquired a vehicle, but have not registered their newly-acquired vehicle within the 20-day registration period. This affects vehicles purchased or otherwise acquired, whereby the 20-day registration requirement falls during the month of January 2014.
