Stephens County Tax Office to stop processing boat title transfers, registrations

The Stephens County Tax Office will stop processing Texas Parks and Wildlife transactions, including title transfers and/or registrations of any watercraft, effective Friday, July 10.

Boat trailers, which fall under the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Department, will still be processed.

The last day and time for the local office to perform TP&W transactions will be at 3:30 p.m. Friday, July 10.

The change in services is due to several reasons, including the office employees having an increase in responsibilities with Elections Administration, an increase in responsibilities related to Ad Valorem duties as a result of Senate Bill 2 requirements, and a reduction in the number of staff members.

All boat registration renewals may be mailed in to Austin or renewed online at www.texas.gov. Title transfers will have to be handled by the Abilene office.
