Fees for late car registrations getting new look
DENVER (AP) – Colorado lawmakers say they’re going to consider dropping one of the most unpopular new state taxes in recent memory – a spike in fees for late vehicle registrations.
A new fee schedule signed into law this year takes late registration fees up from $10 to as much as $100. Even on-time registrations got more expensive, with most car owners paying a $32 increase the first year.
Democrats in both chambers say they will consider revising that new fee schedule next session. The new fee schedule was supposed to raise $250 million annually for roads and bridges.
But Democratic lawmakers tell The Denver Post that the fees are so unpopular the Legislature may revise them. Proposals include reducing late fees for motorless vehicles, such as boat trailers.
