CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) — South Carolinians should expect to see impacts from the “Roads Bill” on incoming tax notices.

Starting this month registration and roads use fees will be included on property tax notices.

For most cars you will see a $16 increase, but if you drive a hybrid and alternate fuel vehicle you could pay $60 to $100 in fees.

This is part of phase two of implementing the “Roads Bill” passed earlier this year.

“This agency never likes to see fees increase for the residents of the state,” said Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. “This fee increase is a legislative mandate that reflects changes in state law. It’s another step in making sure South Carolina has safer, better-maintained roads.”

For registrations that expire in 2019, the decals will be green. These color-coded decals will make it easier for law enforcement officers to notice properly registered vehicles.
