I finally received my registration following the delays with COVID 19 and I’m noticing some discrepancies between what was paid to the dealer and the cost from the Indiana BMV.
State of Purchase: Illinois
State of Registration/Residence: Indiana
Fees Collected at Dealer:
Title Fees: $845.02
Registration Fees: $0
License (Written into a blank field): $170
DOC FEE (Written into a blank field): $300 (Illinois Max)
Indiana BMV Registration:
Title Fees: $15
Registration Fees: $21.35
Excise Tax (Part of Registration): $625.34
License Fee: Doesn’t seem to exist
Based upon my calculations the dealer collected $1,015.02 related to title/registration/license. However, the Indiana BMV only shows title/registration/excise tax totaling $661.69. Taking me to a difference of $353.33.
I wanted to know if anyone here has experienced this or if maybe I’m not considering some fees that are rolled in. I want to make sure I understand this before I go demanding a refund for the difference?
Side note - What the heck could the license fee be for specifically?
