License Tag Tax Snafu Costs Drivers in Greenwood

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — After a Greenwood resident complained about being overcharged for a car tag, an investigation by the Leflore County tax assessor found that the wrong tax rate was being applied for tags in the city of Greenwood. The city should have a slightly lower tax rate than the county but the state revenue department applied the incorrect rate for tags in the city and sent that information to the assessor’s office. The mistake for each tag is roughly $3 and officials say issuing refunds could cost the county more than the total of extra money collected.
