A Better Mid-South: Tricky Tags

A Better Mid-South: Tricky Tags
Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Our Chief Investigative Reporter Andy Wise has uncovered disturbing evidence.

The evidence shows they do this by using post office boxes instead of a permanent address.

I thought it was interesting that Tate County Tax Collector Ernie Brents found a way to put a stop to this in his county.

Brents and his clerks require that the person getting the tag must have a physical Mississippi address. They can't use a post office box.

It seems like a simple fix -- right?

I can't figure out why all tax collectors wouldn't implement this immediately.

Stopping the flow of Mississippi car tags for Shelby County drivers will make this A Better Mid-South.
