DGII reports 300,000 have renewed stickers; 700,000 remain
The director of the Department of Motor Vehicles of the Tax Agency (DGII) Virginia Gomez reported that as of this date around 300,000 vehicle owners have renewed their stickers or “marbetes”, as reported in the Nuevo Diario.
She motivated the owners of vehicles to purchase the renewal stickers authorizing the vehicle to circulate. The official indicated that so far only 30% of the nation’s vehicles have renewed.
The sticker can be renewed at the DGII website, and the online service will deliver the sticker to your house within 5 days. Renewal is also possible at authorized savings and loan associations around the country.
The cost for the renewal of the “circulation tax” is RD$1200 for vehicles from years 2009 and previously and RD$2200 for newer vehicles.
At the present time, Gomez says that DGII offices that were set up to provide this service are practically empty so that there will be little or no waiting. After 31 December 2014 there will be a RD $600 late charge and there will be no online service.
