giving the name of the other county. The REG 256 may be filed with original or renewal applications. When this occurs, DMV will credit the vehicle to the county of temporary use for the period of time indicated by the owner. The credit is used
for purposes of allocation of gasoline taxes only and does not affect smog inspection requirements for the vehicle.
