The Douglas County Treasurer’s Office is asking for your help in minimizing the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on our community and our staff. Beginning Tuesday, March 17, the Treasurer's Office will be closing its west Lawrence satellite office inside Dillons, 3000 W. Sixth Street, until further notice.

Additionally, the Treasurer’s Office will suspend all walk-in or in-person renewals at the Courthouse office, 1100 Massachusetts St., and its south Lawrence satellite office, 2000 W. 31st Street.

This month those with the last name starting with “B” have tags that expire March 31. There are three options for renewal:

Renewals will be processed in our office same day. Please do not wait until the last day of the month.

If you have a newly-purchased vehicle you have 60 days from the date of purchase to get it titled. All title work will be done by appointment through QLess, the county’s scheduling software

We will e-mail you the temporary tag and mail the plastic tag bag. The purchase date needs to be within 60 days, or we will be unable to provide a temporary tag.
