How do you transfer vehicle titles to family in NY? New York
Title Transfer With Family MemberTransferring a car title with a family member is an easy process. For the sake of clarity, New York defines a family member as a spouse, parent, child, stepparent, or stepchild.
If You're the "Seller"You'll first need to make sure the title is in your own name. It cannot be signed over to you, nor can there be any visible cross-outs or erasures indicating that the title has been altered. The DMV will void any title that has been doctored in any way.
If your title is in good standing, sign it over to your family member. If the vehicle is 10 years old or newer, you must complete the odometer disclosure statement found on the back of the auto title. In addition, if the vehicle is eight years old or newer, you must also fill out the title's damage disclosure statement.
If You're the "Buyer"You need to visit any NY DMV office with:
- A completed Application for Title (form MV-82TON).
- A completed Statement of Transaction (form DTF-802). This document grants you tax exempt status (a title transfer among family members is interpreted as gifting).
- The vehicle's title.
- Proof of identity and date of birth.
- Cash, check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express) to pay $50 title fee.
No bill of sale is required to transfer titles between family members.
You will not receive the car title at the DMV. This will be mailed to you within 90 days. If you do not receive your title after 90 days, contact the DMV.
