Recent legislation rescinded the DMV's vessel surcharge portion of the registration fee for boats. NYS is automatically issuing refund checks to those who had already paid the surcharge with their boat registration fee, however, some of these checks have been issued in incorrect amounts. If you paid for your boat registration renewal and received a refund check in excess of $12.50, DO NOT CASH THE CHECK! Instead, please call the DMV Refund Department at 518-474-0904 for further instructions.
