Licensed Motor Vehicle and Heavy Equipment Dealer Annual Vehicle Inventory Declaration
Effective January 1, 2022, the County Tax Office will be monitoring Dealer Inventory Declaration’s for compliance. Specifically, if the report is not turned in or a report reflects fewer than five motor vehicle sales. There are no exceptions, however a dealer can appeal their case to the TXDMV if an inventory report was sent in error.
Effective September 1, 2021, Sec. 23.121 Dealers Motor Vehicle Inventory; Value
If a dealer fails to file a declaration by February 1st of each year or sells fewer than five motor vehicles in the prior year, the Chief Appraiser (County Tax Assessor-Collector) shall report the dealer to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle (TXDMV). The TXDMV will initiate cancellation of the Dealer’s GDN License. A report by the Chief Appraiser (County Tax Assessor-Collector) to the TXDMV is prima facie grounds to cancel the Dealer’s GDN License under Transportation Code 503.038 (a)(9) or refusal by the TXDMV to renew the Dealer’s General Distinguishing Number (GDN).
