Registry of Motor Vehicles Procedures Made Easy for Your Business
First Time Registering A Business Vehicle In Massachusetts?
Here is the procedure when you, as a business or corporation, register a vehicle in Massachusetts for the first time. You must first call the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-0115 and ask for an EIN Verification letter aka 147C Letter. You should not request Form 147C as the Internal Revenue Service may not be able to recognize what is being requested. The Internal Revenue Service will then fax the completed form to your business,
The form then needs to be faxed to the FID Department at the Registry of Motor Vehicles/Department of Transportation. fax number 617-351-9120. The Registry will then input this data into their system.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles advises to wait a day before applying for registration and title.
Does Your Corporation Need To Amend Its Vehicle Registration?
When a corporation wants to amend their business auto registration (address change, garaging change, etc), the Registry of Motor Vehicles needs to see a copy of your corporation’s Articles of Amendment. Your corporation can file online with the MA Secretary of State’s Office/Corporation Division at http://www.sec.state.ma.us. The fee is $100 per 100,000 shares of stock, $100 minimum fee
A registration can still be renewed without the corporation’s articles being amended but will be renewed without the updated changes.
