If you have been in the Probate office recently, you may have noticed our tag display board has been changed. On display for this month, we have the Mike Slive Prostate Foundation tag, the Curing Childhood Cancer tag, and the Drive out Ovarian Cancer tag. Remember, these tags fall under the specialty tag rate. The first time a customer purchases these plates, they will be charged $55.00 extra, each year after this a customer will pay $50.00 extra. Many people are curious as to where this money goes when it is collected. The first year, $5.00 of the collected amount will go to the Alabama Department of Revenue. The rest of the collected amount goes to the Foundations that each tag sponsors:
Prostate Cancer tag funds cutting edge prostate cancer research in Alabama.
Curing Childhood Cancer tag are distributed to the UAB department of Pediatric/Children's Alabama to be used for medical research expenses.
Drive out Ovarian Cancer are distributed to the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation for research at UAB hospital
