Motor Vehicle Registrations
Ad valorem taxes and motor vehicle privilege taxes are collected at the time of registration of all motor vehicles. Ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles include county, municipal and separate school district taxes. A license plate is issued and is renewable annually. The Tax Collector processes the Mississippi Title applications and collects sales tax on casual purchases of motor vehicles. A new registration must be obtained within seven working days of a purchase of a motor vehicle. When a person moves into this state from another state, a Mississippi registration must be obtained within 30 days of the move.
