The DMV no longer accepts from tax collectors a paper tax release or stamp on the back of your registration renewal. DMV will be electronically notified of your payment. It can take two-three business days after your payment to be cleared to register, please plan accordingly. You can check whether you have any DMV compliance issues at https://portal.ct.gov/DMV. ALL outstanding vehicle taxes associated with your name and/or your registration marker number(s) must be paid in full in order for a release to be issued.
