"Due to a computer error, about 100,000 Coloradans were overcharged by $50 to $120 last month while renewing their vehicle registration with the state Division of Motor Vehicles.

The specific ownership tax “was calculated at a higher rate than outlined by the state formula” for some people with vehicle model years 2010 and 2014 to 2018, DMV spokeswoman Sarah Werner said in an email.

The glitch affected people across the state.

The DMV did not say how vehicle owners can receive refunds."


Funny how a "glitch" always results in an overcharge. I wondered why the car tax for my 2014 vehicle stayed so high.

from the Denver Post

"The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles overcharged approximately 100,000 drivers last month for vehicle registration renewals because of a computer glitch.

In a statement provided to The Denver Post, Sarah Werner, a spokeswoman for the DMV, said the programming error affected some residents with vehicle model years 2010 and 2014 to 2018.

Most drivers were overcharged $50 to $120, although Werner said it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact dollar amount for each person. The extra charge came on the specific ownership tax.

“Programming has been developed and is currently being tested to correct this issue for individuals who have not yet renewed their December-expired registration and to make sure this error does not occur in the future,” Werner said in an emailed statement.

The DMV will reach out by mail to those affected once they figure out the error, the statement said."


If you were overcharged, wait for a letter.
