There is an additional one-time $20 swap fee charged by the state when applicants pick up their plate at their local RMV. A renewal fee set by the State of Massachusetts will be due every two years. For future renewals, the entire fee is tax-deductible and will support the programs and services of MFH, with 25% supporting the Disabled American Veterans Department of Massachusetts transportation program.
