Immobilised Cars

The Road & Transportation Department decided to spare the road tax of immobilised vehicles in case their owners will file TOM 12 application to have the vehicle declared idle. Specifically vehicle owners who have not paid their road tax for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 for vehicles they are no longer using, they will not be subject to road tax if they file TOM 12 application to the Road and Transport Department or provide a sworn statement from the court to verify that their vehicles are no longer in use.

The above exemption applies to vehicles that:
1. Are not used, or
2. Were destroyed in accidents, or
3. Were bought but the previous owners have neglected to pay the road tax.
 

Those who have already paid the road tax on their immobilised vehicle will be refunded.

TOM 12 application cannot be backdated and should be submitted to the Road and Transport Department by the vehicle owner as soon as the vehicle becomes idle.
