Current law also provides that compensation paid under the commission contracts with the DMV is on a per transaction basis. Amends GS 20-63(h) to providethat commission contractorsmay, in addition to collecting the highway use tax, also collect property tax and issue a limited registration "T" sticker, each as a separate transaction for a fee of $1.27. Provides that the performance of additional transactions listed in this subsection are to be considered to be a single transaction for a fee of $2.43 (was, $1.43).
