Kansas To Outsource Vehicle Dealer Title Work
KSCB News - October 6, 2015 10:13 am
Kansas is set to outsource vehicle title work for automobile dealers next year to save about $200,000.
Officials said Monday that the bulk of dealer transactions handled by the Kansas Department of Revenue�??s office in Topeka would be managed by the Kansas Automobile Dealers Association.
General title services will continue to be available to individuals in county offices.
The trade organization set up a limited liability company to begin processing thousands of transfers in January. Lisa Kaspar, the state�??s director of vehicles, says the five-year contract won�??t result in layoffs at the revenue department.
The Kansas Automobile Dealers Association says a processing fee of no more than $10 will be woven into transaction costs assessed by dealers to consumers.
