To the editor:

If you have a licensed vehicle over 30 years old, you will be in for a surprise when you get your next license renewal.

The county vehicle property tax has been added to your license application. At the same time, your vehicle has been re-evaluated. My 1941 vehicle value increased from $500 to $3,000. This increased my tax from $3.02 to $18.02. This has been added to the license fee. A very sneaky way to increase your tax and pass the buck to the DMV.
