New Law: Purple Heart License Plate Fee Waiver

To honor those who have served in the military and earned the Purple Heart, beginning January 1, 2015, Illinois will waive the payment of any registration or registration renewal fee for an individual issued a Purple Heart license plate.

The law will also allow individuals who have been issued the Purple Heart license plate and qualify under the Senior Citizens and Disabled Persons Property Tax Relief Act to obtain a plate for an additional vehicle for a $24 registration fee.

The legislation was sponsored by Rep C.D. Davidsmeyer.
