HUT included in doc and admin fees
A new law will require a dealer include doc fees (listed within GS 20-101.1) when calculating Highway Use Tax (HUT) on vehicles sold, this change was to begin 1/1/14 but is delayed until 7/1/14. The new law is found in S402 “Highway Use Tax Base” Section 34.29.(a) with (b) indicating the effective date. House Bill H112 amended Section 34.29.(b) to be effective 7/1/14.
Electric veh fee
The electric vehicle registration and renewal increase becomes effective 1/1/14. This fee is based on when the registration is processed, not date of sale. One special provision allows that electric vehicles sold on 12/31/13 can avoid the extra fee if it is registered with DMV by close of business on 1/2/14.
