Texas Vehicle Title Fees

The Texas (TX) Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires residents to complete a vehicle title application within 20 days of purchasing a motor vehicle. Texans have up to 45 business days to title a used car if the seller is financing the vehicle.

Complete a car title application at a county tax office. Data that you will provide on the title application includes:

  • Your first and last names.
  • Street mailing address (including city, state, and zip code).
  • Make, model, and year of the motor vehicle.
  • Seller’s first and last names.
  • Lienholder name and contact information (if the vehicle is being financed).
TX does not require residents to pay standard fees for vehicle titles. Each person who purchases a used car in TX must pay a motor vehicle sales tax.

The DMV motor vehicle sales tax or fee is paid at local county tax offices. The title transfer fee is as follows:

  • 6.25% the vehicle purchase price, or
  • 6.25% of the standard presumptive value of the vehicle.
Presumptive values on motor vehicles are updated weekly. Dial (512) 465-7611 should you have questions about your title fee. Be advised that fees that are paid late are assessed a $25 fine.
