                                    To assist dealers participating in the “Cash for Clunkers” federal program, we have instructed dealers to submit the certificate of title for the qualifying trade-in vehicle along with form HSMV 82363, Application for Salvage Title/Certificate of Destruction and the appropriate fees (see T09-03 issued July 27, 2009).  An issue came up as many dealers were holding the trade-in vehicles until they received payment from the federal government and then applying for the Certificate of Destruction. FRVIS is adding a late fee to these transactions.  The Certificate of Destruction transaction is normally used for towing companies and insurance companies. However, in this case, it is being used for a dealer.  Therefore, the late fee is not applicable.

 

                                    When processing the Certificate of Destruction transactions, please enter the date the vehicle was received in on trade in the “acquired date” field.  Later on in the transaction, you will receive a message box advising you that the current date will result in late fees.  Click on the “no” button and enter in the acquired date.  In the comment field, enter “Clunker.”  When asked what type of towing, enter “private.”  Processing the transaction in this method will not charge the late fee.

 

                        If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact your Help Desk Representative.
