Can H.E.B. help?

Read on the tax office’s website that HEB grocery stores are an alternative for getting new vehicle registration stickers. So will try them this afternoon. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Nope. They turned down my receipt for $75 plus from the DMV. Say I must start over with the process. And pay again? They didn’t say. I’ll go back tomorrow and start over.

MORE: No luck. They ran it through their computer, determined I had already paid and so said they could do nothing to help.

We never have received our new stickers, despite having paid for them: me, BE and step-daughter. So I’m headed for the county tax assessor tomorrow to turn in new applications for them and pay again, presumably. Ain’t government fun?

UPDATE: Learned the tax office is losing employees to Covid and other problems and is backlogged for everyone. Plus you have to make an appointment to see them and the earliest we could make one is April 15. That’s months after our stickers have expired. Only good thing is since the cops have been defunded locally, i.e. reduced in strength, we’re not likely to be stopped and ticketed.
