COLORADO, USA — A new law means that drivers who fail to register their cars in a timely manner will have to pay extra when they finally do.
On Jan. 1, the clock began ticking for drivers who have not properly registered their vehicles after moving to Colorado or who have an expired temporary tag.
Last year the Colorado legislature passed the Colorado Registration Fairness Act (HB22-1254), which adds teeth to existing laws by requiring the collection of owed back taxes and fees for delinquent registrations.

The late registration fines and payment of back taxes and fees will apply to all Coloradans who register their vehicles after the temporary tag expiration date, or after the 90-day grace period given to new residents moving into Colorado.
Prorated back taxes and fee amounts will vary for each Coloradan based on the vehicle and county of residence. Coloradans should visit their county motor vehicle office to find out how much they will owe if they are delinquent in registering their vehicle.
