Jefferson County, Alabama

Distinctive Tags


Effective Feb 3, 2020 Jefferson County Department of Revenue will be making an administrative change to pass a 1% non-refundable convenience fee (minimum $1.95) to the cost of a transaction when paying for motor vehicle transactions by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. This change is the result of increasing costs to offer the option of credit card services as a convenient form of payment at the front counter for the citizens of Jefferson County. Payments made by cash or check at the front counter will not be assessed a convenience fee.
