What Is The $5 County Vehicle Registration Fee?
Pennsylvania’s 2013 transportation funding law (Act 89) contains a provision that authorizes counties to add $5 to each annual vehicle registration to fund critical county infrastructure. The money can only be used for the maintenance and improvements of roads, bridges, and traffic signals. Montgomery County enacted this resolution in September 2016 and collects nearly $3 million each year to support the repair of county-owned roads and bridges, and fund the County Transportation Program.
