Privacy Policy:

Due to recent clarification from DOT on the Drivers Privacy Protection Act (18 U.S.C §2721) the following is the Buchanan County Treasurer’s new policy on renewing registrations and issuing titles:

  • You can pay for another person’s registration
  • However, if your name is not listed as an owner on the vehicle then:
    • We will collect postage and can mail it to the owner
    • The owner can stop in and pick it up
    • The owner can give you written consent for us to release the registration to you
      • An example of written consent would be: “I, Jane Doe, give permission to John Doe to receive my vehicle registration and/or titles and plates.”

If you have any questions regarding title work please contact us at 319.334.2005.
