Vehicle Tax 2022: Don’t forget to pay it by the deadline


2022/05/18 Wednesday Announcements

The deadline to pay the vehicle tax this year is until May 31 (Tuesday).

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/life insurance/well-being, public transport infrastructure, job security, preventive measures against natural disasters, etc.

Mie Prefecture will send a blue envelope containing the “payment invoice” (noufusho – 納付書) to all vehicle owners.

Take the “payment invoice” (noufusho – 納付書) which is inside the envelope to a financial institution or convenience store for payment.  In addition, the tax can also be paid by credit card (exclusive for internet payment) or smartphone payment apps.

If the payment is not made by the deadline, a “late payment fee (entaikin – 延滞金)” will be charged along 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 cars, salary, among other goods and possessions.

Don’t forget to pay by May 31 (Tuesday).
