If you are Active Duty, there are a couple of things that ABC Title can do to assist with your Department of Motor Vehicle needs. You are eligible for a “Tax Break” when moving to Louisiana, provided you have paid sales tax on your vehicle in the previous state. Additionally, there are Active Duty License Plates available for most Branches of Military.
