Car and truck tags are issued by the Tax Collector. You have 7 working days from the date of purchase to register your vehicle. New residents moving from another state have 30 hays to obtain a new plate. It is helpful to bring your automobile registration and/or title. New residents from another county in Mississippi can wait until their next renewal to change plates. Tags are usually valid for a period of one year from the date they are issued.
Visit the Tax Collector’s office between January 2 and April 1.
The operating hours are Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
