The DMV requires proof of taxes paid to renew tags or register a vehicle. If you did not owe taxes last year, you will need a waiver.
To open a personal property account, contact the Assessor’s Office. Once you have an account, the Collector’s Office can issue waivers by phone, email, or in-person. Waivers are vehicle specific, so you will need to provide proof of ownership (title in your name, out-of-state registration, assignment on the back of the title).

Taxes are based entirely on January 1st, so even if you sold the car on January 2nd, you would still owe taxes on it for the year. On the other hand, if you purchased a car on January 2nd, you would not owe taxes that year.
If you owned personal property and resided in Greene County on January 1st, you will need to assess and pay taxes in Greene County for that year.
Option A: The Assessors have not received an assessment list from you. Contact their office to update your information.
Option B: If you didn’t have personal property on Jan 1, you will not owe taxes for that year. You may need a waiver to tag vehicles.
The leasing company (aka lessor) owns the leased vehicle and is responsible for paying the taxes. To register the vehicle or renew tags, please contact the Collector’s Office to get a waiver stating no tax due or a copy of the vehicle’s tax receipt.
