The Wabaunsee County Treasurer's Office is an agent for the State of Kansas for registering and titling motor vehicles. We issue license plates upon receipt of proper documentation and submission of the correct fees. The fees include registration fees, personal property taxes, title fees, and sales tax, if applicable. Each year the State sends out courtesy reminders six weeks prior to the expiration date of the license plate. It is a state law that every vehicle has proper insurance coverage before the vehicle can be registered. We handle the initial titling of vehicles in Wabaunsee County, as well as the annual renewals. Once a vehicle is purchased, the new owner has 60 days in which to bring their documentation into our office to be processed. If the purchase is an out-of-state title, the owner of the vehicle needs to have a vehicle identification inspection completed. This is done at the Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Department for a charge of $ 20.00, in cash only. Inspections should be done by appointment. Please get your inspection done by 4:00 p.m. if you wish to complete your title application on the same day. We are striving to keep costs down by not paying overtime, which costs all Wabaunsee citizens.
Please see the Treasurer's Main Page for required documentation for MOST title transactions. Some circumstances could require additional documentation.
