Among the most common taxes that a person will have to pay is to get their car registered with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. Every two years you will have to renew this registration. When the time comes to do this, you will get a notice in the mail about 30 days before your current registration expires. Here is what you will find on this notice:

  • The fee that you have to pay
  • The deadline that you need to have it paid by
  • The emissions check requirements
  • Things you will need to complete the process

  • Get the car’s title number handy

  • The emissions test certificate
  • The notice that you have received in the mail
  • Proof that you have car insurance
  • The money to pay the fee that you owe

Renew by mail

  • Submit payment in the form of a check or money order

The address that you will need to send this information to will be on the notice that you receive.
