Oklahoma Tax Commission Launches Enhanced CARS.ok.gov

Renew car tags online with a more user-friendly platform

OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) recently unveiled a new look and improved functionality for CARS.ok.gov (Convenient Auto Renewal System) tag renewal system. The redesign flows better with the rest of the OTC website and is more adaptable for both mobile and web platforms.

As individuals renew their car tags over the coming year, they will have the option through CARS.ok.gov to pay an extra fee and retain their existing tag number for the newly designed license plate they will receive in 2017.

"CARS.ok.gov is intended to make renewing car tags a convenient, simple and easy process for individuals," said Paula Ross, Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson. "CARS.ok.gov is open around the clock every day, including weekends, nights and holidays."

The CARS.ok.gov homepage content was evaluated and redesigned with user feedback in mind, providing the public with a more functional and user-friendly experience. The application now has modified instructions that walk the end user through the application with ease. It also links to the OTC's main website for up-to-date information regarding tag renewals.

The online application functions on multiple mobile and web platforms using responsive design. When a user accesses the application from his or her mobile device, media queries hide large images and stylistic elements so the application can be viewed with ease on smaller devices.

Oklahomans can renew their car tags online, via CARS.ok.gov, if they:

  • Renew a tag for a noncommercial (automobiles; noncommercial/non-farm trucks; motorcycles; travel trailers; motor homes) or commercial (15,000 pounds or less laden weight) vehicle, that is not more than ten (10) months delinquent.
  • Renew a tag for a farm truck weighing (truck + load carried or pulled) 55,000 pounds or less, that is not more than ten (10) months delinquent.
  • Have a valid credit/debit card or a checking account to pay for the renewal.
  • Have insurance information ready, or are declaring a non-use vehicle.
  • Have a driver's license number (if individual) or FEI number (if other than an individual).
  • Have a printer connected to a computer to print the receipt and/or provide a valid email address to have the receipt sent to that account.

CARS.ok.gov was developed in partnership with the Oklahoma Tax Commission and Oklahoma Interactive, LLC (OI). OI operates under a self-funded model, in which no additional tax dollars were used to develop or maintain this application.
