The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) is aware of registration fee
issues where counties are attempting to process a Texas Title with an ownership
evidence code of “Out of State”, where the Texas record for the title was
previously filed in the Registration and Title System (RTS) as a Registration
Purposes Only (RPO). This issue applies to the Out of State ownership evidence
code only. Support Staff are currently troubleshooting the issue.
Workaround / Suggested Action
TxDMV is requesting that counties pause on processing Texas Titles where owner
evidence is out-of-state and the Texas record was previously an RTS RPO until
further notice. In the event that this specific transaction type has been processed,
counties should void the transaction and wait to reprocess the transaction once a fix
has been implemented.
We apologize for the inconvenience and any impact on you and your customers.
TxDMV will continue to provide updates as troubleshooting continues for this issue.
