Hello all!


I am currently living and working out of state in my 2nd home. I just renewed my car registration for my Florida vehicle online (I leave this car in Florida), however the Florida DMV put my current out of state mailing address as my residence address on my new Florida car registration renewal. So my Florida home isn't even listed on my new car registration. How is that even possible?


Anyone have this problem before? This is my first time doing the whole "snow bird" kind of thing.

Looks like you have a problem with your residency. You can't be a Florida resident LIVING and working in another state. And being a 'snowbird' is not a resident.

Fair enough, but I should say my work takes me all over the country from time to time. I just happen to be lucky enough that now I can work remotely wherever/whenever I want, hence the 2nd home.

Take it up with the Florida DMV; you may or may not get lucky with them.

Lived in Florida for years. Not really sure how I could screw up?

Tons of people buy second homes in another state. All I did was provide a temporary mailing address on the registration renewal, which is allowed.

Generally you are considered a resident if your domicile is that state, or (if your domicile is another state) you maintained a permanent place of abode in that state and spent more than 184 days there during the year. They can check your credit card bills heck, even your cell phone if one state wants to hammer someone over taxes.

^^^^
FL statute chapter 222.17 [relates to residency] does not mention anything about the amount of days in the state.

What I';m saying is that you gave them an OUT OF STATE mailing address, which validated you live in another state....duh


All you had to do is use your valid FL addy, then problem solved...in fact you could have just had your mail temporarily forwarded from FL to wherever - they would not have known unless you also are dumb enough to place on your appraisal/tax info at the county, your "mailing address" is OUT OF STATE....DMV has immediate access ot ALL of this data, even status of your DL and address changes/provisions and even whether you have a valid out of State addy LOL


That's how you screwed up

Just call or online, correct it, it is no big deal.

I lived out of Florida for a while and had a separate mailing address from the registration address. They would just mail me the registration, again, no big deal, not uncommon at all.
