Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

     The purpose of this bill is to exempt non-profit organizations from paying an annual motor vehicle registration fee for vehicles used exclusively to carry out its goals and purposes.
     A search of the West Virginia Secretary of State’s web-site database revealed there are currently 10,216 active non-profit corporations registered as of February 15, 2013.
     The Division of Motor Vehicles nor the Secretary of State’s Office has an idea of the total number of vehicles that are registered by each non-profit organization.
     Assuming each non-profit organization has one vehicle registered and pays a registration fee of $30.00 per year, the total loss of revenue would be $306,480.
     The revenue loss would be $291,156 in registration fees, $10,216 in litter control fees and $5,108 in compulsory insurance fees.
     The cost of producing one plate per non-profit organization is $7.40; therefore, the annual cost to the Division would be $75,598.
