Jefferson County, Alabama

Personalized 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.


Personalized tags may be ordered for most private passenger and commercial vehicles, and some motorcycle, bus, camper or antique vehicles. The combination of letters/numbers requested must not conflict with the regular number system and is subject to State of Alabama Revenue Department approval. A maximum of seven characters will be allowed.

Fees - The fee for personalizing your tag is $50.00. This fee is added to your standard issuance fee and ad valorem assessments. If a personalized tag is stolen or lost, you can apply for a replacement tag and decals at a cost of $2.25.
