Although many offices and state agencies are physically closed, there are still many things Oklahomans need to take care of, like car tags.

A viewer called our problem solvers coronavirus hotline saying, “My tag expired on March 31. Following the stay at home order not to go to the tag agency, I'm wondering if the fines will be levied after the month of April if we are still in a lockdown mode."

The short answer is yes, fines will still be in place.

According to the Oklahoma Tax Commission, in most registration renewal situations, delinquent penalties begin one month following expiration, accruing in the amount of $1.00 per day until paid, or until the maximum penalty amount of $100 is reached (100 days).

Should a vehicle remain unregistered for more than one year, the current registration plus one back year of registration, with applicable delinquent penalties added to each, will be collected.

However, to avoid fines or penalties, you can go online to OkCARS to renew your car tag.
