The deadline to pay the vehicle tax this year is until May 31 (Monday).
Vehicle tax must be paid once a year by anyone who owns a vehicle.
This tax is used in various administrative services in Mie Prefecture such as: school education, improvements in health, medical care and welfare, public transport infrastructure, employment security, preventive measures against natural disasters, etc.
Mie Prefecture will send a blue envelope to all vehicle owners.
Take the “payment invoice” (noufusho-納付書) that will be inside the envelope to a financial institution or convenience store to make the payment. In addition, the tax may also be paid by credit card (exclusive for Internet payment) or payment applications for smartphones.
If payment is not made by the due date, a “late payment (entaikin – 延滞金)” will be charged together with the amount specified on the invoice. And, for those who do not make the payment even after receiving warning letters and other documents, the penalty determined by law will be applied, which includes, for example, the seizure of automobiles, salary, goods, possessions, etc.
Don’t forget to pay by May 31 (Monday).
