The fee shall not apply to tag transfers and replacement transactions. The tag transaction fee shall be in addition to any other fees authorized by law. (b) Three percent of the proceeds from the fees shall be retained by the Revenue Commissioner to be used for the operation of his or her office. The remainder of the proceeds from the fees shall be distributed by the Revenue Commissioner to the Dale County Commission to be further distributed by the county commission to municipalities and to emergency medical services organizations for emergency medical services and activities in the county.
