When does my registration expire?
Most license plates expire at midnight on the first registered owner's birthday. Therefore, it is important that you renew your tag on or before this date.
What do I need to bring or send to Renew my Registration?
- Your renewal notice or previous registration.
- Current proof of Florida Property Damage and Personal Injury Protection insurance. The name of your Florida licensed insurance company and policy number is required.
- Payment by cash, credit card, money order or personal check.
- Mail the form properly completed and your payment payable to:
Pasco County Tax Collector
PO Box 276

Is there a Penalty if my Registration is Late?
Yes, a penalty will be charged if your tag renewal is not completed before the 11th day of the month following your renewal month.
Renewal notices are printed several months in advance by the Division of Motor Vehicles and mailed out in bulk to local Tax Collector offices. Generally, they are sent according to the zip codes that fall within each county. Sometimes individuals have a "dual" zip code which covers two different counties. For example, there are zip codes in Lutz that cover both Pasco and Hillsborough counties. In cases like this, you may receive a renewal from Pasco instead of the county you live in.
You may take your renewal to your local Tax Collectors office for processing instead of Pasco County if you would like, or you may renew your tag by mail or in person at any Pasco County Tax Collector office.
Do I need to Register my Mobile Home?
Mobile homes are required to be titled and currently registered at all times, even when unoccupied. Mobile home decals expire at midnight, December 31st of each year. The fee to register a mobile home is determined by its length. The failure to register every year will result in delinquent tax.
When the owner of the mobile home is also the owner of the land on which the mobile home is permanently affixed, a Real Property Decal is required.
If you currently have a regular mobile home decal, and own the land your mobile home is affixed to, do not renew your mobile home decal. Instead, contact the Property Appraiser's Office at 727-847-8151 , 352-521-4433, or 813-929-2780.
Before the Tax Collector's Office can issue a Real Property Decal, an application for Real Property Decal must be issued by the Property Appraiser's Office. The Real Property Decal is permanent, and has no expiration date. To apply for a Real Property Decal, submit proof of ownership and an application for a Real Property Decal to the Tax Collector's Office.
Effective October 1, 2004 all personal information contained in all motor vehicle or driver license records will be blocked. You may contact The Bureau of Titles and Registrations at 850-617-2000 for additional details about the procedure to obtain information by Florida tag number.
First Issuance of Personalized/Specialty License Plates
Personalized license plates may be ordered at any of our offices. There are many types of specialty tags available, including Manatee, Panther, Collegiate and others. For pictures and descriptions, see Specialty Tag Information at the Department of Motor Vehicle web site. The initial tag may be applied for at any time; however, the vehicle must have a current Florida registration at the time of application. An additional fee is added to the license plate fee and must be paid each year.
Renewal of Personalized/Specialty License Plates
You may renew your personalized/specialty license plate at any of our offices. If your personalized plate is six years old and scheduled to be replaced, you must apply for renewal no later than two months prior to your birth month to allow sufficient time for manufacturing.
NOTE: Effective September 1, 2009, most motor vehicle and driver license fees increased significantly. These fee increases were passed by the Florida Legislature and approved by the Governor to help balance the state budget. None of the additional money will stay with Pasco County Government or the Tax Collector's Office. For a list of the new fees visit Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' website at: www.flhsmv.gov.
