Some December Renewal Fees Miscalculated by the Department of Revenue

UPDATE: December SOT overpayment refund checks were processed by the State of Colorado for Adams County on March 20 and mailed on March 21. Visit their SOT overpayment refund page at for more information.


Adams County recently learned that the Colorado Department of Revenue made an error in calculating renewal fees for drivers whose license plates were due to be renewed in December 2018 and whose vehicles are a model year of 2010, 2015, 2016, 2017, or 2018. 

Our partners at the state level are working on a solution to this issue, and we will continue to release that information once it’s available.

At this time, drivers affected do not need to take any action; they will be contacted once the solution is in place.
