When a Kentucky resident moves out of state, they must title their vehicle in their new state of residency. Some states do not notify Kentucky that the vehicle is now registered in a new state.
To ensure vehicle is taken off tax records, return a copy of the new states title or registration along with the Kentucky license plate to the county clerk's office.
If current year taxes have not been paid, they will be due at the time the moved out of state is processed. You can do this by mail ($2.00 processing fee required) or at any of our 7 locations.
