The Indiana Bureau of Motor vehicles has created a new website for customers to verify excise tax refund eligibility. In the past some -citizens utilizing some BMV services were overcharged. In early October, 2014 the BMV began sending out claim forms to customers who were affected by this earlier Excise Tax ‘misclassification.” But it appears that some customers did not receive their claim form letters. Commissioner of the BMV Don Semis then announced on November 10th that the Bureau has created a website that allows customers to determine if they eligible for an Excise Tax Refund. This website allows Hoosiers not only to verify their refund eligibility but also print a form that includes mailing instructions. To avoid potential fraud, the BMV asks Hoosiers to access the refund eligibility page by visiting the website myBMV.com and check on the green “Check Your Excise Tax Refund Eligibility” icon on the right-hand side of the home page. Users will need to input either their Social Security number or their driver’s license number to check their eligibility. To date the BMV has received over 131,000 claim forms and processed over 92,700 of them, totaling refunds of $14.9 million dollars plus $1.2 million dollars in interest. Currently the BMV is processing claim forms about a week after they are received, with checks being issued approximately another week later.
