We are implementing a fix to reissue the renewal decals for customers who have paid their property tax bills on 5/19-5/21 and have not received them in the mail. We expect all reissued decals to arrive at the address on file no later than June 30, 2020. Please allow time for these decals to arrive before submitting or calling to request a replacement decal. You may renew your registration online only if you received a mailer from the SCDMV notifying you that additional fees or insurance verification is due.
Please make sure that the address shown on your registration certificate or renewal document is correct. If it is not correct, update your address.
In this state, you must pay your personal vehicle property taxes before a license plate can be renewed and a new decal issued. You can pay both the vehicle property taxes and renewal fees at the county treasurer's office. After you pay your taxes, the plate or registration decal is mailed to the customer from the SCDMV the next working day.
If you have an adjusted tax bill, owe a penalty, or must have your registration corrected to reflect a senior citizen discount, please make an appointment to visit an SCDMV branch.
Can I pay my taxes online?
If you live in a county listed below, you may pay your taxes and registration fees online. You must pay at the county treasurer's office if you live in another county.
I paid my taxes, but I didn’t get my sticker.
If you do not receive your license plate or decal within ten working days, you may get one at an SCDMV branch. Customers must continue to schedule appointments online to maintain social distancing inside branch offices. The SCDMV only accepts original paid property tax receipts.
If you received a notice that your renewal was not processed for a reason above, you may complete your renewal online.
You may be issued a license plate or registration decal that shows a different expiration date than shown on your vehicle registration. This is necessary because personal vehicle property taxes must be paid on a yearly basis while registration fees are collected on a two-year basis.
