    Yes your Government does nothing for you for free. How the sytem works. You have money or goods. They will try to steal it from you.

    If your car was sitting in the impound yard for an extended period, then you are legally responsible for paying the towing and impound fees. Simple as that.

    If you're the legal owner of the car, then you're responsible for the towing/impound fees.

    If you want your car back you better do what they tell you to do hopefully you had insurance on your car that was stolen and any amount of money that you have to pay to the police or to the impound yard or to the towing company or to the mechanic that repairs your car after it's stolen that's deductible off of your insurance you can turn all of that in its part of the cost of the theft and the theft recovery. And that's what insurance is for. The answers to your question is if you don't have insurance you have to pay the whole bill yourself and the cost of the recovery and the cost of the storage yourself.

    Talk to a lawyer.

    If you properly reported the car stolen, and it turns out the police never informed you they had the car in the impound lot, you should not be liable for any of the impound fees after that point.

    The fees you will still be liable for are any that accrued after you were notified.

    That seems like something that could be covered by car insurance.

    Procedures vary by jurisdiction but in general, in the United States .... the law enforcement agency that discovers the vehicle will attempt to contact the registered owner so you can self-recover the vehicle.  If they cannot reach you or the vehicle is parked illegally or dangerously, the vehicle will be towed.  Because you are the registered owner, you are responsible for the towing charge.  The law enforcement agency will continue to contact you so that you can recover your vehicle.  Again, because you are the registered owner, you are responsible for the storage fees.  That's what it boils down to ... it's your vehicle and you are responsible for it.

    It's your car why should anyone else have to pay?

    Because it was towed and stored, by a company that tows and stores cars.   Towing yards are a major scam but usually not illegal.  

    If it was just jewelry recovered in a theft it would have cost you nothing to get back with proof of ownership.
