Chapter 3 – Fees
Section 3.1, “Collection and Disposition of Title Application Fees,” was updated to add the title application fee of $28 or $33 will be assessed based on the purchaser’s county of residence, regardless of the processing county. In addition, a table was added that lists the counties that assess the $33 title application fee.

Chapter 6 – Application and Issuance of Motor Vehicle Title
Section 6.2 “Place of Application,” was updated to add a title application may be submitted to any county tax assessor-collector willing to accept the application.

Chapter 25 – Motor Vehicle Dealers
Section 25.1, “Definitions and General Information,” and Section 25.3, “Requirement for Motor Vehicle Dealers,” were updated to add a licensed vehicle dealer may submit title applications to any county tax assessor-collector willing to accept the application for vehicles sold March 1, 2022, or later.
