Default Problem With PENNA Tag Service

Long story short. New boat and trailer April 3 2009. My local tag place does not do boat registration so I had to go to another place to have that done. I got my registration numbers and title back in 6 weeks. The trailer has been another story. My local guy does the paper work, I right the checks and he sends it off to Harrisburg. Six weeks later I get a letter from the state saying I owe them a hundred dollars and change for taxes. I look at temp registration and see the error on the tag services end. I go back to the guy, who tells me the state is wrong and don't worry about. He resubmits the paperwork. That was 7 weeks ago, every week I stop by the tag place and the guys tells me the state is working on it. Every week I call the state and they tell me they don't have it. I have a feeling this guy or his messenger service either lost or screwed up the paperwork. My 90 temp registration ran out July 5th. Technically I'm pulling an unregistered trailer. My question is what is my next step?

Thanks

I would call the local state police barracks and ask for their help in what to do next. Ask for the officers name, write it down with his suggestions and keep it with you along with all your paper work. Unless you get stopped for a violation I think you will not have a problem.

Would I need to contact the state police or could I use my local. The reason I ask is I was stopped 2 weeks ago, going thru a seat belt check thing. I was pulled over and ask for license, reg etc... I was upfront with the cop about the tag for the trailer. He read my the riot act and then I explained the story to him. He let me go with a warning but told be to clear it up (like its my fault)

I feel like my local tag guy is holding me hostage. I just got off the phone with the state again and they tell me the problem is with the tag guy. If nothing turns up by next Monday they will turn it over to another department, what that department is she could not say
