Passenger vehicles are registered annually on a staggered basis. Generally, registrations expire one year from the month issued. The payment of municipal excise (property) taxes is a prerequisite for all motor vehicle registrations.  Excise taxes must be paid to your town office prior to registration.  Many municipal offices also issue registrations. Residents of those municipalities that do not issue registrations must bring the excise tax certificate to a local Bureau of Motor Vehicles office to complete the registration process and obtain the registration plates, stickers, and a completed registration.
