Senate Bill 876: Processing of Title and Registration Transactions by any Willing County

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

Senate Bill (SB) 876, enacted by the 87th Legislature, allows an application for title and initial registration to be submitted to any county tax assessor-collector willing to accept the transaction in addition to the purchaser’s, seller’s, or lienholder’s county. Additionally, an owner of a vehicle may renew their registration with any county tax assessor-collector willing to accept the transaction.

SB 876 is effective March 1, 2022.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles is in the process of adopting amendments to administrative rules and programming the department’s automated systems to accommodate the changes necessary for SB 876. The goal of the department is to automate these changes as much as possible to streamline processes for stakeholders.

As a result of this legislation, there will be fee assessment and fund distribution changes. Registration fees will be assessed based on the resident county for title and registration transactions processed by a county tax assessor-collector willing to accept the transaction. Title application fees will be assessed based on the purchaser’s resident county, regardless of the processing county. All title applications submitted through webDEALER or physically received at the county tax assessor-collector’s office on or after March 1, 2022, will result in the title application fee being assessed based on the purchaser’s resident county. Vendors that offer dealer management software may need to program their systems to calculate the appropriate title application fee and registration fee based on these changes.

Additional communication and webinar opportunities will be forthcoming to inform stakeholders of the details and impacts of SB 876.

Thank you,

 

Roland D. Luna, Sr., Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
