Renew locallyErie County Clerk Chris Jacobs and Legislator Kevin Hardwick remind motorists to renew their vehicle registration locally and keep much-needed revenue in Erie County. Taxpayers should know that by renewing directly through the County Clerk’s Office that more than $1.5 million annually is kept in Erie County that otherwise would go to NYS.

 

“The power of one individual multiplied by the actions of thousands can make a difference. By joining in the ‘Renew Locally’ initiative residents can be proud to know they are contributing directly to keeping taxes down for themselves and their fellow residents,” said County Clerk Jacobs.

 

“This is one area where people can help keep the cost of county government down.  I call it the Citizen's Tax Cut,” said Legislator Hardwick after renewing his registration on Oct. 16 at the Erie County Auto Bureau’s downtown location.

 

Erie County receives 12.7 percent of each transaction processed by the Erie County Auto Bureau.

 

The County Clerk’s Office offers convenient options to renew locally. Any of the Auto Bureau offices and satellite locations can renew registrations on the spot. Also, the Clerk’s Office provides green, pre-addressed postage-paid envelopes, available through the Clerk’s Office. To request an envelope, call (716) 858-8866 or email ErieCountyClerkOffice@erie.gov.

 

When residents receive the renewal form in the mail they are directed to:

1) Sign the certification on the back of your renewal application.

2) Fill in your inspection number on the back of renewal form.

3) Enclose a check or money order payable to: “Erie County Clerk” and use the postage-paid green envelope and mail to the Erie County Auto Bureau

 

The County Clerk’s office will mail the new registration and sticker to the motorist.
