New Law Requires Farmers and Ranchers to Show Proof of Eligibility for Plates

Published on October 30, 2013 by Larry Crippen

A new state law requires farmers and ranchers to show their state comptroller-issued Texas Agricultural or Timber Exemption Registration number before obtaining farm license plates and/or temporary excess weight permits at the Vehicle Registration Office.

Walker County Tax Assessor-Collector Diana McRae says, “Please be sure to bring your Texas Agriculture or Timber Registration card number to the county tax office when you are applying or renewing your farm plates or applying for a temporary excess weight permit for farm motor vehicles, trailers and semitrailers.”

She said, “However, if you forget to bring your card in, we are assisting citizens by verifying the number on the state’s comptroller’s website.” She says, “We realize this is a new law and an inconvenience to the farmers and ranchers, so we want to do everything we can to prevent them from having to go all the way home to get their Registration card then come all the way back just to renew their farm plates”.
