How do I apply for a refund?

How do I apply for a refund for a vehicle that was sold, traded, etc.?

Once you have signed over the title to someone else the owner (seller) can apply for a refund in the County in which the fees were paid.

The owner will need to bring in the following:

  • License Plate
  • Drivers License / I.D. Card
  • Social Security Number (SSN) or Passport ID Number
  • Current Registration (Please Note: If you do not have one, a duplicate registration can printed for $1.00)

For a vehicle that is now registered in another state?:
If you have recently moved to another state, you can apply for a refund of the remaining property taxes.

The owner will need to bring in or mail in the following:

  • The License Plate (unless the other state requires you turn it in)
  • Copy of the owners Out of State Drivers License
  • Copy of the Out of State Registration for that vehicle
  • Current KS registration (Please Note: If you do not have one, a duplicate registration can printed for $1.00)
  • Refund Form TR-210 (PDF format)
  • Out of State Refund Instruction Sheet (PDF format)

Please Note: Refunds are calculated on the date ALL the documentation is complete. If it is your month of renewal there would not be a refund.

Mail all information to:

  • Douglas County Treasurer
  • P.O. Box 884
  • Lawrence, KS 66044-0884
