AG TAGS NOW AVAILABLE
"Montgomery, Ala." Alabama's new Farming Feeds Alabama license plates are now in production and may be picked up at county tag issuing offices, according to the Alabama Department of Revenue.
The long-awaited tags will help fund Ag in the Classroom and other ag promotion programs in the state. The tag was designed and promoted by the Alabama Farmers Federation. Officials with the Federation said they are eager to begin seeing the new license plates on Alabama's highways.
"This is great news for Alabama farmers," said Federation Organization Director Mike Tidwell. "These tags will provide a steady source of funding for Ag in the Classroom and other promotion programs aimed at educating the public about the importance of agriculture."
Tidwell said drivers who pre-purchased tags may pick their tag up at their local probate judge's office. Those who want a pre-numbered tag will be required to present their commitment-to-purchase application and registration receipt along with a $1.25 issuance fee. They also will be required to turn in their current, unexpired license plate.
Those who would like to order a personalized tag must present the same paperwork and issuance fee, but they will be issued a 60-day temporary tag, which must be displayed in the rear window of their vehicle. The personalized tag will then be mailed to the driver's home address.
Drivers who did not pre-purchase a Farming Feeds Alabama tag may buy one now. They will be required to pay a $50 annual fee, plus applicable taxes.
