The BMV established a $30 million fund to reimburse customers who were overcharged.

More than 300,000 Hoosiers have requested the Bureau of Motor Vehicles send them checks as a way to reimburse them for overcharges incurred since 2007.

A BMV settlement earlier this year created a $30 million fund for people who had been charged anywhere from $3.50 to $15 more than they should have been for BMV services.

But even if motorists’ don’t apply for a refund, they will still get reimbursed. The money will be credited to the person’s account and will be subtracted from the amount of any future payment made to the BMV.

If someone wants to receive the refund in the form of a check, they can do so by filling out a form online.

The BMV has 45 days from the time someone requests the refund to deliver the payment.
