Registering and Titling Motor Vehicles

The Finney County Treasurer's Office is an agent of 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.

Renewal notices are mailed out as courtesy reminders six (6) weeks prior to the expiration date of the license plate. They are not forwarded to address changes.

State law requires applicants to provide proof of insurance on each vehicle being registered. This can be an insurance card issued by the insurance company, or a photocopy thereof, a binder of insurance, a motor carrier ID number issued by the corporation commission, fleet insurance, or a certificate of self insurance issued by the Insurance Commissioner. A copy faxed to our office is also acceptable. The fax number is 620-272-3678.

Initial titling of vehicles when purchased is another function of the office. In order to title a vehicle, the applicant must have an assigned title or Manufacturer's Statement of Origin. The new owner has 30 days to bring the documents into the office for processing. After the 30 days, penalties will be assessed.

Vehicles with out-of-state titles must have a VIN inspection done before the vehicle can be titled in Kansas. VIN inspections are conducted Monday through Fridays between 8:00am to 12:00pm amd 1:00pm to 5:00 pm at Holcomb Police Department. Holcomb Police Department is located at 200 N. Lynch (1 Blk. South on Taylor Jones, 2 Blocks West of Main) in Holcomb. The following items are required for the inspection:

  • Original Title of vehicle
  • $20.00 cash only
  • Current Drivers License/Id Card
  • Vehicle to be inspected.

The license plates in Kansas expire based on the first letter in the last name of first person on the title.
