DOVER, Del. (AP) - State transportation officials are accepting public comment on proposed changes to vehicle fees imposed by the Division of Motor Vehicles.

The DMV is authorized to collect a motor vehicle document fee when a vehicle changes hands. The fee is paid by the vehicle owner and goes to the transportation trust fund, is calculated on the gross purchase price, less any trade-in or allowance given by the seller.

Current rules allow the fee to be waived if the vehicle is a gift from one family member to another, but the vehicle cannot be considered a gift if there is a lien on it.

The proposed revision would authorize the DMV to not impose the fee in a family gift situation, even there is a lien on the vehicle.
