By working closely with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and the local Dealers, we hope to offer our customers the most convenient and efficient service possible.
Since the introduction of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle’s computerized Registration and Title System (RTS) in 1995, the transaction time for registrations and titles in our offices has been reduced greatly. Also, titles are now delivered to customers approximately two weeks from the transaction date instead of six to eight weeks, as it was before RTS was implemented.
The Tax Office offers a number of ways to conduct your automobile transactions. The purchase of registration stickers and the transfer of titles can be done through the mail. We now offer Online Vehicle Registration….to access this feature, click here. For more information on these services, please call the Tax Office at (432) 524-1409.

• For your protection, never buy a vehicle in a private sale without receiving the title.
• Be sure the seller gives you the title. If the title is from Texas, you can go to Title Check at www.TxDMV.gov to see if it’s a clean title.
• The seller must sign, date and enter the odometer reading on the title back.
• Be sure the seller signs, dates and enters the sales price on Form 130-U. If you are purchasing the vehicle out of state, have the seller download the form from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles website, www.TxDMV.gov.
• Go to your local county tax office within 30 days to title the vehicle in your name.
• Sign, date and enter the odometer reading on the back of the title.
• Fill out your section of the mandatory Form 130-U. The buyer needs this to title the vehicle out of your name.
• Take off the license plates and transfer them for free to the new vehicle you buy. (That plate number ties directly to your name.)
• File the Vehicle Transfer Notification online at www.TxDMV.gov to remove your liability for the vehicle in the event the buyer does not transfer the title. You only have 30 days to file the Vehicle Transfer Notification to receive this state-guaranteed removal of liability.
