Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Certificates of Title and Registration of Vehicles; General Registration; Transfer of Ownership.  Amend RSA 261:66, IV to read as follows:

IV.  Any person who owns a vehicle shall be entitled to transfer the vehicle registration on that vehicle to a leased vehicle and any person who leases a vehicle shall be entitled to transfer the vehicle registration on that vehicle to an owned or leased vehicle and shall be given the same credit for this transfer as for any transfer of ownership provided under paragraphs I-III of this section.  The registration shall be processed to expire according to the formula set forth in RSA 261:62.  [If the transfer extends the expiration of the existing registration, pro-rated fees shall be charged for the additional months in the new registration period.  If the transfer shortens the registration period from the existing registration period, no refund shall be issued.] In the case of a lease transfer, the primary lessee shall be the first person named on the registration and his or her date of birth shall determine the expiration date of the registration.  Any person who obtains a vehicle transfer pursuant to this paragraph shall be subject to the vehicle transfer fee.

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect January 1, 2020.
