Do you have a scofflaw in Dallas County that is preventing you from getting your registration? Here is how the Transportation Code explains a scofflaw.
Sec. 502.010. COUNTY SCOFFLAW. (a) A county assessor-collector or the department may refuse to register a motor vehicle if the assessor-collector or the department receives information that the owner of the vehicle:
(1) owes the county money for a fine, fee, or tax that is past due; or
(2) failed to appear in connection with a complaint, citation, information, or indictment in a court in the county in which a criminal proceeding is pending against the owner.
(b) A county may contract with the department to provide information to the department necessary to make a determination under Subsection (a).
(c) A county that has a contract under Subsection (b) shall notify the department regarding a person for whom the county assessor-collector or the department has refused to register a motor vehicle on:
(1) the person’s payment or other means of discharge of the past due fine, fee, or tax; or
(2) perfection of an appeal of the case contesting payment of the fine, fee, or tax.
