When you apply for a vehicle title, you must pay motor vehicle sales tax or 6.25 percent of the purchase price. If buying a used vehicle from a private party, 80% of the standard presumptive value or 6.25 percent of the purchase price (whichever is greater) will determine the motor vehicle sales tax due at the time of titling. You will also be charged a title transfer, registration and local fees. For more information about specific vehicle title transfers and fees, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Customer Care Center at 214-653-7811.
New residents need a vehicle inspection, proof of liability insurance, odometer reading if it is less than 10-years old, out-of-state title or proof of registration, completed form VTR 130-U, along with registration fee, title application fee and new resident tax. For detailed information regarding fees or other questions, please email email@example.com or call us at 214-653-7811 during business hours.
If the deceased left a will and the will was probated, you’ll need certified copies of the Will and Muniment of Title or Letters of Testamentary from the Probate Court. The person appointed as executor will sign the back of the title and the Application for Title form VTR 130-U. If there was no will or a will was not probated, an Affidavit of Heirship form VTR-262, must be signed by all heirs and notarized. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 214-653-7811 during business hours.
