Licensing, Voting, Registration, Property Tax and Dump Sticker Information

For Vehicle and Trailer Registrations: please contact the Town Office for more information on what paperwork to bring with you and what process you will have to follow in order to receive your registration and license plates. We will also be able to determine what your excise tax amount will be. All residents who register their cars in the town will receive a registration reminder in the mail at the start of the month that their registration is due to expire. Please note that if your vehicle license plate has a loon, UMAINE or other "deluxe" decals on it, there is an additional $15.00 registration fee due to the Secretary of State. If you custom "initialed"  numbered or lettered plates made up for your vehicle, there will also be an additional $15.00 registration fee due to the Secretary of State.

Boat, Snowmobile and ATV Registrations: For new registrations, please bring along your bill of sale (which must include your purchase price), green dealer sales tax form if you have one and an old registration (if previously registered elsewhere). If your purchase was a casual sale not through a registered Maine dealer, we require that you have at least a hand-written bill of sale with the purchase price, date of sale and previous owner's address on it. Additionally, with casual sales, you must submit a yellow Use Tax Certificate to declare if you already paid your sales tax or what your sales tax amount due will be. Please call if you have any questions. Please note that all motorized boats (even with an electric motor) require registration and milfoil stickers to be legal on an approved body of water.

Dump Stickers: You must be a resident of Beaver Cove in order to receive a Lily Bay transfer station sticker.  When you fill out the application, you must indicate which vehicle you intend to put the sticker on, and the sticker must actually be affixed to that vehicle, so that it may not be moved from vehicle to vehicle.
