Computer Glitch Blamed for Mistaken Car Tag Addresses

AUGUST 7, 2006 - Posted at 8:52 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A small number of car tag renewal notices, 134 of 197,000, were sent to outdated addresses this month and state officials suspect a computer glitch.

The state Department of Finance and Adminstration is investigating the problem, and Assistant Revenue Commissioner Mike Munns says it's possible the problem has been going on for several months.

Munns said apparently the problem affects some people who have moved within the last couple of years, not everyone with two addresses.  Munns said employees are manually checking those addresses to make sure notices go to the right address.  He said he doesn't know when  the problem will be fixed, but the department will waive the late fee for renewing car tags if the delay was the result of the agency's mistake.

Munns said he hoped district court judges will have sympathy on anyone who received a ticket because of the state's error.
