POOF!! True, the expired FMT in the past has always just disappeared into.... Nevertheless, in this day of computerization, who knows for the future.
So if you are worried about the FMT, you might look at the reverse side. In the past there was always an address in the Federal City printed there where you could send your FMT if you had forgotten to turn it in at the frontier. I haven't looked at an FMT for so many years I don't know if they still put an address on the back or not. But look for it, and if it is there just mail the FMT off and then forget it. With the Mexican mails it may or not get to its address, but at least you could then tell the Migra that you mailed it in to the main office as required. Of course you could say that anyway using your regional office as the destination.
To my knowledge there is no fine for not returning an FMT.
With Mexico hurting for tourists I can't see them refusing you entry for any reason. But then Migras have bad hair days too.
