66-3-1006. Grounds for refusing registration or certificate of title.
The division may refuse registration or issuance of a certificate of title or any transfer of a registration certificate if:
A. the division has reasonable grounds to believe that the application contains any false or fraudulent statement or that the applicant has failed to furnish the required information or reasonable additional information requested by the division or that the applicant is not entitled to the issuance of a certificate of title or registration certificate of the off-highway motor vehicle under the Motor Vehicle Code [66-1-1 NMSA 1978] or laws of this state;

C. the division has reasonable grounds to believe that a nonresident applicant is not entitled to registration issuance under the laws of the nonresident applicant's state of residence;
D. the required fees have not been paid; or
