With the recent notification from the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) regarding the change in renewal notices for this month, Hall County Tax Commissioner Darla Eden would like to remind residents of the new Renewal Identification Number (RIN) retrieval option that allows taxpayers to query the DOR website for the RIN.
“Previously, if the taxpayer didn’t have their renewal notice in hand; they had to call our office for their RIN to complete the online renewal. For security, the RIN changes yearly,” said Eden.
To obtain the RIN number online, visit the DOR website https://mvd.dor.ga.gov/tags/index.aspx and select "Obtain/Retrieve a RIN." Then enter the plate number, name and address. The RIN will automatically populate in the renewal program to continue the renewal process.
“Once the December notification letter is received, our residents need follow the instructions in the letter to retrieve the RIN if they wish to pay online or to find out the amount owed”, said Eden.
The RIN will automatically populate in the renewal program to continue the renewal process.
Note: Vehicle registration is required to be renewed by the expiration date, which is the date of the first listed owner’s birthday. Failure to renew timely can result in citations and fines.
