In case you’re planning to renew your car tag today…

The line outside of the Jefferson County Courthouse, 5.31.2011

The line outside of the Jefferson County Courthouse in downtown Birmingham is quite long this morning, extending deep into Linn Park. It is the last day of the month (and the first since the Jefferson County Commission decided to close satellite offices once again in order to save money), meaning people from throughout the region are making that last ditch effort to pay their tag renewals.

Don’t forget that you can choose to pay your tag renewal fees virtually, though you’ll be paying an online convenience fee of anywhere between $3-30 depending on how you choose to pay – and you won’t necessarily get that tag renewal in time to avoid getting a ticket. There is word though that the county may have extended the deadline for renewing your May tags until June 30, but we’re waiting for confirmation and it’s been confirmed.

Thanks to Jacob Pigott for sharing his photo with us this morning.

my dad the economist always said "What is your time worth?" I renew online for 3$ each - makes me made but the gas to get there and then the wait - my time is worth more than that!

Wow.  And I thought Friday's line was ridiculous!  I was there for 4 hours and feel sorry for anyone having to stand in that mess today.

Thanks for the heads up! I've edited the post to reflect. So if someone came by with water bottles, they could make a bundle today then?

They made an announcement to those in line confirming the extension, by the way...

I only get renewal notices for one of my three vehicles, so I ALWAYS have to go down to renew.  I think it's kind of ridiculous you need an "online code" to renew a tag.  Shouldn't a tag number be sufficient, lol?
