  6. Number of Liens:
    If the lender has filed an electronic lien, enter 0 for number of liens, asked after selecting Y to Title Transfer.

  7. Plate Transfer with Expired Registration:
    Here is a two step procedure to calculate transaction fee for a plate transfer with an expired original (old) registration.
        [Note: Expiration date must be within 12 months of the Temporary Registration Issuance Date to proceed otherwise process as new plate.]
    1. Perform DMV-CALC Renewal calculation. This renews the original registration as of the expired date. Record transaction total.
    2. Perform DMV-CALC Transfer/Re-Register calculation using the just renewed expiration date at "Old Registration Expiration Date".
    The total for the transaction = Renewal $ + Transfer $.

  8. Corporate Registrations:
    When completing the Vehicle Registration/Title Application MV-82, if you checked Yes at "Is this registration for a corporation or partnership", then in DMV-CALC when you encounter the Corporate Registration prompt, you should enter the Temporary Registration date as it appears on the MV-82. DMV-CALC will calculate the Corporate proration fee through end of month since Corporate registrations expire on the last day of the month.
