License Plate Production Revenue, Expenditure, and Deficit

license plate production


Utah Code 41-1a-1211 specifies the authority the Tax Commission possesses to impose a fee on the issuance and renewal of license plates.

Funding for this line item is generated through license plate fees. The fee per new license plate is $5, of which $1 goes to the Transportation Fund and $4 to cover the costs of producing the license plates.

Since September 2009, this line item has been running a structural deficit; In the 2010 General Session, and beginning in FY 2011, an ongoing transfer of $258,000 of the revenues from License Plate Fund to the Motor Vehicle Division was made. This explains the larger than normal dip in License Plate revenues beginning on FY 2011. Expenses are greater than revenues going into the fund, and the existing balance will be drawn down at a more rapid pace than indicated in the FY 2010 report.
