MVD Set to Implement New Law That Waives Some Vehicle Costs for Survivors of Military Killed in Line of Duty Featured

ADOT Communications

Change Takes Effect Next Month

 

A state law taking effect Jan. 1 waives some vehicle fees and taxes for survivors of military members killed in service to the United States.

The law removes the vehicle registration fee and the Vehicle License Tax for one vehicle registered to an eligible surviving spouse or dependent who’s a resident of Arizona. It applies to all types of vehicles ‒ including trailers ‒ and is renewable on an annual basis.

The benefit applies to a surviving spouse or dependent of anyone killed or who died of injuries sustained in the line of duty with any branch of the U.S. military, including the National Guard, Coast Guard and Reserves.

To confirm eligibility, the surviving family member must visit a Motor Vehicle Division or Authorized Third Party office and present a U.S. Department of Defense Form 1300 Report of Casualty. Customers will also need to fill out an MVD Survivor of Fallen Military Member Exemption form. This document will be available at azdot.gov/mvd close to the effective date of Jan. 1, 2017, when the exemption can be issued.


This ADOT message is brought to you by ADOT Authorized MVD Third Party Provider:

Authorized Third Party (ATPs) MVD Locations are contracted by the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division to perform driver license, title, registration, and other motor vehicle services. Most ATPs offer extended hours at convenient, statewide locations.
