I am moving out of Orange County. What do I need to do?
Orange County is not a prorating county, therefore, you will owe Orange County the tax for the full year and the County you move to cannot assess you on your current vehicle until January 1 of the year following your move in date. However, if you purchase a new car and the County you move to is a prorating County they can charge you tax on your new vehicle, for the portion of the year you own it. If you move out of State, a proration will be made upon receipt of a copy of the out of state registration.
