I took delivery of a new Model 3 about two weeks ago. At order time, I told my representative that I wanted to transfer my old car's tags, which would save registration fees and nearly $900 in property taxes. Upon delivery, I told the delivery team the same thing. They hesitated briefly, said sure, and then put all the documents in front of me to sign. I should have read all of them very closely, as it turns out. One said I wanted new tags. Which no one really every should in North Carolina, as you can transfer old ones for a grand total of $20 and aren't liable for additional property taxes until the old one expires I just now received a NEW tag I didn't need in the mail with a notice that I had paid nearly $200 for registration for the new tags and owed nearly $900 in property taxes immediately. This is EXACTLY what I would have avoided by transferring my old tag. This is a huge sum of money, equal to a couple of years of fuel savings for me... kind of gutted about this. In addition to paying for an extra 8 months of taxes, by the time the old tags ran out in September, the property tax valuation would have been for a used Model 3 rather than a new one. My fault for being stupid and not reading, but definitely also the sales and delivery team's fault for not listening to me. It should be a red flag for them to at least discuss this when anyone doesn't opt to transfer old tags.
