When you go to renew the tag for your vehicle, you may be surprised to see that it costs more than it did last year.
The fee for special license plates has increased from an initial cost of around $35-$45 to $80, said Keith Echols, Hall County tax commissioner. Renewal rates have increased from $25 to $35, which is an addition to the annual $20 registration fee that everyone pays.
“A lot of people who have specialty tags have been (surrendering them) because of the extra costs,” Echols said.
“Now they’re just getting regular tags.”
I’d be curious to do a poll of Peach Pundit readers to see which is the most common specialty tag. I’m guess wildlife. That’s the one I have.
