Beginning January 1, 2003,
Act 225, Session Laws of Hawaii 2002, requires owners of motor vehicles of
the current, previous, and subsequent year model years to provide proof of
payment of the use tax at the time they register their vehicles in Hawaii.
For vehicles registered in 2003, this requirement will apply to 2002, 2003,
and 2004 model year vehicles imported into Hawaii.
Persons registering motor
vehicles they imported at any county motor vehicle registration office generally
must complete Form G-27,
Motor Vehicle Use Tax Certification, to certify that 1) the use tax due on
the imported vehicle has been paid OR 2) no use tax is due on the imported
vehicle. Form G-27 is submitted with the application for motor vehicle registration.
