Commercial Fleet Vehicles Are Due for Renewal
2017-09-26
Dear Business Owner:
 
The Calhoun County Commissioner of License will mail all commercial and business (fleet) renewal cards within the first ten business days in October.   As a result, we would like to insure your renewal experience with our office is convenient as well as efficient.
 
Please review the information below as a check list for renewal.
 
  • Renewal cards:   If you did not receive your renewal cards, the address on file may not be correct on the registration. Spreadsheets with VINs are acceptable for pricing. If you failed to receive renewal cards for certain vehicles, please contact me at the email address below.  NOTE:  Dealerships will not receive dealer tag renewal cards.
 
  • Proof of Insurance:  Proof of insurance is required in either the form of a FLEET insurance card or individual proof of insurance (for each vehicle). Renewals will not be processed without one of these documents.  NOTE:  Dealer tags and trailers are the only exceptions.
 
  • Heavy Highway Use (Form 2290):  2290s are required for fleets with trucks carrying a GVWR of 55000 pounds or more.  Each vehicle VIN must be listed on the 2290. The 2290 must be stamped “RECEIVED” by the IRS in order to be accepted. The 2290 must be for the current tag year.  Forms are obtained at www.irs.gov
     
  • Regulatory and Business Licenses:  In order to purchase dealer tags, dealerships are required to obtain (or renew) a Dealer Regulatory License with the Alabama Department of Revenue Motor Vehicle Division. This can be done by accessing www.mvtrip.alabama.gov .  As well, a Calhoun County Business License must be purchased or renewed.  Proof of both items must be shown to the license clerk before the purchase of any dealer plates.
     
If you have any questions or need additional information, you may contact me at the number listed above.  Spreadsheets may be emailed to the address below. Please call, if you have not received a reply within 24 hours.  Payments may be made in the form of cash, checks or credit cards. All major forms of Cards are accepted. We do not take ACH payments for fleet renewals
