What will happen if I don't pay the Motor Vehicle registration and tax by the due date?
The due date is the expiration date of your vehicle's registration, so you may get a ticket for driving a vehicle with expired tags. Interest will also accrue on your vehicle's property tax and you'll have to pay a late fee when you renew your vehicle's registration.
