The entire team at HCTC is thinking of Hillsborough County Sheriff Deputy Santos and Corporal Brito as they recover from injuries sustained in the line of duty. We consider them part of the Tax Collector family as they also serve as off-duty officers at our branch offices, where they protect our team and customers. We join with the entire community in wishing them a speedy recovery. If you’d like to donate to aid in their recovery, please visit this link.

Recreational Vehicle License Plate

A recreational vehicle is required to have a current license plate properly affixed to the vehicle unless it is taxed as real property. A recreational vehicle can be taxed as real property if the owner of the vehicle is also the owner of the land on which the vehicle is permanently affixed. To declare a recreational vehicle as real property, owners must obtain a form DR-402 from the Property Appraiser’s office.

The license plate on a recreational vehicle expires on the owner’s date of birth annually. The registration fee is based on the length of the recreational vehicle if it is mounted on or drawn by another vehicle and by the weight if it runs on its own power.

If the trailer or recreational vehicle is on a lot in a park, it requires a decal or plate.
