Over the weekend of December 11, 2020, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will update the Registration and Titling System (RTS) with Release 9.9.0 that contains the content summarized below.
A Closed County Sales Tax report did not exist in Cognos for TxDMV users to generate and view the sales tax amounts collected by each county on behalf of counties that were closed.
RTS defaults the odometer reading to EXEMPT when a vehicle is 10 years old or older and prevents the ability for a user to enter an odometer reading or change the odometer brand.
The personalization fee for plates is $40 per year per vehicle. $38.75 was deposited/credited to the General Revenue Fund and $1.25 was deposited/credited to the TxDMV Fund.
County users did not have the option to download reports to the local computer. They were only able to print the reports on the printer located in the office.
When a customer renews registration late at the county, they were only able to renew for the current registration period.
County users did not have an RTS environment to be used for practicing RTS registration and title transactions as a training tool.
The Lone Star Carbon Fiber specialty license plate did not exist in RTS and IVTRS.
The Sickle Cell Disease Awareness specialty license plate did not exist in RTS and IVTRS.
The Zeta Phi Beta specialty license plate did not exist in RTS and IVTRS.
