Check web for BMV refund amount

With a few mouse clicks, many Indiana motorists can receive a stocking-stuffer present from the Indiana Department of Motor Vehicles.

Marion Superior Court Judge Heather Welch on Nov. 12 issued a settlement in a class action lawsuit that claimed the BMV had overcharged drivers from $3 to $15 for new or renewed driver’s licenses between March 7, 2007 and June 27 this year. She ordered the BMV to pay back $30 million of those overcharges.

Refunds will be automatically credited to those drivers who qualify the next time they visit the BMV for a driver’s license, license plate renewal or other business. The refunds can also be requested by calling 800-248-0084, or going to www.in.gov/bmv/3158.htm and clicking on the BMV Class Action Lawsuit Check Request link. The deadline to request a check is Dec. 15, 2016.

Several Lebanon Reporter staff members applied for the online credit: Their refunds ranged from $3 to $9.78.

Those over 75 are not eligible for refunds because the BMV did not overcharge anyone in that age group.
