Do all tire retailers need to be registered with the department for the Tire User Fee?

No. If you pay the fee to a retail supplier who is registered for the Tire User Fee and who agrees to collect and pay the fee for you, you do not have to register with us.

A registered retail supplier who makes such an arrangement with the tire retailer is liable for the fee on all tires sold to the tire retailer and must:

  • provide the tire retailer with a receipt that reflects the tire fee collected on each transaction and
  • accept used tires for recycling from the tire retailer's customers.

If you have additional inquiries, you may submit them to the Questions, Comments, or Request form.
