Reminder from the County Treasurer:
Heavy Truck, Trailers and “A” tags are due at the end of February. Bring proof of insurance for each vehicle. Please remember to bring your drivers license when titling vehicles.
Heavy Trucks over 54,000 lbs. needs a stamped IRS Form 2290. Those need to be completed when you register your truck. (2290’s can be filed for at www.express2290.com) The County Treasurer’s office can no longer assist in filling out the 2290 forms.
Please let us know prior to renewal if you are interested in a state park pass for your vehicle.
Please come in early to renew your tags and driver’s license. If the state computer system is down, we can not process your requests.
CDL Renewal is now available at the Treasurer’s office again.
IF you did not receive a renewal form from the state, you may look them up at: www.ksrevenue.org
Please remember to renew your tags and drivers license at your earliest convenience; if there is trouble with the State Computer System, we are unable to process these items.
If you sell a vehicle, be sure to keep the tag. You are eligible for a refund on that tag or you may transfer the money that is left on it to a new vehicle. Do not let the buyer drive off with your tag. In Kansas, the tag belongs to the person-not the vehicle. Letting the buyer drive off with your tag could cause you grave legal consequences if that vehicle is in an accident.
If you have a heavy truck that requires IRS Form 2290 (over 54000 pounds) be sure you have filed with the IRS. In January, a stamped form is required to renew your heavy truck tag.
Applications should be made 2 months prior to your tag expiration date. If you would like to have the new plate at the time you renew, please apply early. Tags take 6-8 weeks to arrive after application approval. Application fee is $45.50.
Taxes & Distributions
If you have not paid your taxes, do so quickly because interest is accruing. Personal Property and Oil & Gas taxes now have to be paid in full. In March, unpaid personal property will be turned over for Sheriff’s Warrants.
Antique Vehicle Renditions have been mailed out. These need to be signed and returned by March 15, 2018. If you have an antique vehicle and did not receive a rendition, please contact the Treasurer’s office.
The County Treasurer made distributions in the amount of $9,590,917.72 from all tax accounts to the Cities, Schools, State, Ground Water Management and the County Entities on January 19, 2018.
More information is available at the County Treasurer’s office.

Congress passed the Real ID Act in 2005. This is coordinated effort by the Federal Government and the States to improve the accuracy of state issued identification documents.
Beginning October 1, 2020 Every Travel will need a Real ID to board commercial airlines or enter designated federal facilities. If you would like the Real ID designation added to your Kansas DL, you must bring with you a state issued birth certificate, a marriage license (if your name is different than on your birth certificate) and your Social Security Card or Income Tax Form with your SS number on it for verification. This option will be available for DL’s that renew after August 1, 2017.
You will be able to continue to use your existing DL to board a plane or enter a federal facility until September 30, 2020. After that time, you MUST have a Real ID.
