300 tags must be pre-sold before the Department of Revenue will begin production on a particular distinctive tag. When the Department receives the 300 applications, the appropriate fees, and a design provided by the organization and approved by the Department, the tag is sent for manufacturing.
The applicant will be notified by the organization (FCA) when his/her tag may be picked up at the tax collector in his/her county of residence. The tax collector’s offices will have a list provided by the Department of the people who have already paid their fees and are entitled to one of the first 300 tags.
As soon as you receive notification that the tag is available at the tax collector’s office, the applicant should pick up his/her tag as soon as possible. There are 60 days allowed from the time the organization is notified by the Department for the vehicle owner to pick up the license plate. If the applicant chooses to wait beyond this time to pick up his tag, the special tag fee must be paid again at the time the tag is picked up.
