Credits & Refunds

A tax credit/refund may be available within three (3) months before or after purchasing a new vehicle.

A tax credit may be applied toward the tax due at the time of registration for a vehicle registered to you and sold three (3) months before the purchase. A tax refund may be applied for when a vehicle is registered to you and sold within three (3) months after purchasing a different vehicle. Contact the Department of Motor Vehicles for further information.

If submitting a dealer appraisal after the processing of your registration application, it must be received within thirty (30) days of the registered date to be considered for a refund.

Please note, if you purchase a vehicle out of state and tax is collected by that state, the Vermont DMV cannot issue a tax refund. You will need to contact that state’s DMV regarding any refund of tax
