Collection of the Late Registration Penalty

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

When renewing late registration in accordance with Transportation Code, §502.045, a person who has received a citation for late registration must pay an additional charge equal to 20% of the registration fee at the time of renewal.

RTS does not currently accommodate for the collection of the 20% late registration penalty when customers return to pay the penalty ordered by the court, after renewing.   This has required counties to use a workaround.

With the implementation of RTS Release 9.8.0, a new event, “Registration Penalty” has been created in RTS to process the collection of the late registration penalty.  This new functionality will also include resetting the expiration month and year, as applicable, back to the original expiration in instances where the customer’s registration expiration month started over. 

RTS will generate a new sticker that will be printed with the Late Registration Penalty Receipt.  The county must require the customer to return the previously issued sticker.  RTS Release 9.8.0 will also include the elimination of the Late Registration Penalty from the RTS Additional Collections event.   More information will be provided in the RTS 9.8.0 Release Notes.

Thank you,
