This year’s deadline for tax payments is June 1st (Monday). Please ensure that you pay Automobile Tax by the deadline.
Automobile tax is one of the closest taxes to the citizens. Motor vehicle taxes account for approximately 11% of the prefectural tax revenue. And the money collected is used for education, improving health and welfare services, transportation infrastructure maintenance, unemployment benefits, disaster preparedness and many other important government initiatives.
Automobile Tax Payments can be made through the bank and also through others facilities including convenience stores. You can also use a credit card to pay your tax (over the internet).
If the deadline expires, a “late payment fee” will be applied along with the automobile tax. And for those who do not pay even after receiving the late payment notice, a penalty determined by law will be applied, and material assets may be seized such as vehicles, salary, among others.
Your Tax Payment receipt is required when you take your vehicle for an inspection (shaken) so please keep it in a safe place.
