What can I do, if I have been taxed with a vehicle I did not own January 1, 2021?
If you have been taxed for a vehicle you did not own January 1, 2021, this means that the DMV showed you to be in possession of the vehicle.  Our office will require proof that you did not own this vehicle January 1, 2021.  Proof may be presented to this office and some examples of that proof include:  Bill of Sale,  Trade in Paperwork, Insurance Removal, etc..
(Also remove the vehicle from your DMV record to prevent vehicle from being taxed next year.)
