The eTAG database system is going through a clean-up process after a system restart. State data center staff are working to bring the system back to an operational status. Unfortunately, an ETA is not available at this time. An update will be sent by 4:00 PM this afternoon (10/5/2016) if the system is not up, or as more information becomes available.
The statewide ticket for this issue is: 94335
As a reminder, if you are unable to print buyer’s tags, you should use your pre-printed Internet Down buyer’s tags. As you know, every dealer is now allowed a minimum of 30 Internet Down tags. If you have less than 30 printed, print your full allocation now so you are prepared when the eTags system is unavailable. Please remember that after using an Internet Down tag, you must enter the information for that tag into eTags as soon as the system is accessible. Doing this, will ensure you always have the full allocation of unused Internet Down tags available when you need them. Also remember that unused Internet Down tags are valid for one year from the date they are printed.
