COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Muscogee County Tag Office is taking residents out of long lines and putting them online.

Tax Commissioner Lula Huff announced at Tuesday's city council meeting that taxpayers can pay their vehicle renewal registration online through the Georgia Department of Revenue's web site.

Huff says the first people who can use this method are those with January birthdays.

A 12-digit identification number will be listed on all renewal notices that are sent to citizens in the mail about a month before their birthday and the number will be required to pay online.

Credit card companies will charge convenience fees, depending on how much you owe and your new registration will be mailed to you in five days.

Huff stresses this online payment option is only for renewal registrations, not original applications for registration.
