RALEIGH—Tuesday is the first day of business for a new law that prevents North Carolina motorists from registering their cars until their taxes are paid.

"Tax and Tag", which took effect on Sunday, requires people to pay their property taxes and registration bills if they want their license plates.

Counties requested the new law because some drivers were delaying paying their bills. North Carolina has about 8.5 million registered vehicles.
