2012 – Car Tax Payment Deadline


2012/05/07 Monday News

If you are a car owner, have you remembered to post your Car Tax Payment Notification Form? This year’s car tax payment deadline is Thursday, May 31st 2012.

You can pay your car tax either using ATMs located in banks or by paying at major convenience stores. Please retain your receipt of payment when you pay your car tax at the bank or convenience store as you will need this for your next vehicle inspection. Please keep it in a safe place.

77% of car owners paid their car tax on time for the Heisei 23 (2011) financial year.

If you do not pay your car tax by the deadline you will incur a penalty fee for each day your payment is delayed.

In addition, those who fail to pay their car tax despite our demands will be means tested and may face repossession of their assets equal to the amount of taxes unpaid. Every year there are thousands of cases where we have had to carry out repossessions to reclaim unpaid taxes.

Car tax makes up 14% of the prefecture’s tax income and is an important source of revenue; it is used to fund the maintenance of roads and rivers, to develop industry and to promote education, culture and sports. Paying tax is one of the duties we all have as members of society. Please pay your tax by Thursday, May 31st 2012.
