New and used car dealers who charge a conveyance or processing fee must disclose on both the purchase order and the car invoice that the fee is not payable to the State Of Connecticut.
The dollar amount of this fee is not regulated or set by the State.
The following statement must appear in at least 10 point bold type on the face of each purchase order and invoice immediately adjacent to the stated fee:

(NOTE: If the vehicle purchase requires the listing of a lienholder, the customer may not elect to submit the documentation.)
