City Launches New Website Page to Process $40 Vehicle License Fee Refunds

News Release Infographic 2

On July 21, 2022, the City of Snoqualmie launched a new website page to process refunds of a city-imposed vehicle license (AKA car tab) fee paid by some residents this year. 

Last November, Snoqualmie voters approved Proposition No. 1, which authorized the City to impose a 0.2% sale and use tax on retail sales within the city limits. The approval of this ballot initiative also repealed a city-imposed vehicle license fee which was scheduled to be phased out on April 1, 2022. 

Due to system delays, the Washington State Department of Licensing was unable to update this vehicle fee repeal prior to April 1, 2022. Therefore, some Snoqualmie vehicle owners were charged the fee after the repeal date. 

Consequently, the City will refund this vehicle license fee to all those who paid the fee after April 1, 2022. 

If you paid this city-imposed fee after April 1, 2022, please visit the Car Tab Fee Refund website page, fill out and submit the online form, along with your vehicle license registration receipt. The form can be submitted for each vehicle for which the fee was paid. 

Refund requests will be processed and issued within 4-6 weeks. 

The City thanks residents for their patience as it works to correct this situation.
