Subject:  Increase of Sea Turtle License Plate Fee

Advisory Date:  06-06-07                  Implementation Date:  07/01/07

Advisory Number:    R07-10





                        Effective July 1, 2007, the specialty fee for the Sea Turtle license plate was increased to $23.00.  The renewal notices for July and August were mailed prior to this law change.  Therefore, these notices do not show the correct fees.  A letter has been mailed to the individuals who received incorrect notices to advise them of the fee increase.  September renewals will contain the correct fees. 


                        If a renewal with the incorrect fees is received in a tax collector’s office by mail, the clerk may change the effective date to a date prior to July 1, 2007.  This will allow FRVIS to only collect the fees as shown on the renewal.  FRVIS programming for the fee changes will be effective on July 1, 2007.
