    Question 12: What happens if I did not receive a renewal notice?

    You do not need a renewal notice to renew your motor vehicle registration online, by mail or drop box, or in person at any of our eight locations, but you will need your license plate number and the vehicle identification number.  The vehicle identification number can be found on your proof of insurance. 

    Renewal paperwork including supporting documentation and fees can be mailed or placed in the secure drop box for processing at our downtown Fort Worth location.  The drop box is available 24/7.  We accept checks/money orders/cashier’s checks made payable to Wendy Burgess, Tax Assessor-Collector, through the mail and in the drop box.  No cash or credit card information please.  The sticker and/or plates are mailed to you.  Please allow 3 weeks for processing and mail time.

    The mailing address is:

    Tarrant County Tax Office

    100 E. Weatherford Street

    Fort Worth, TX  76196

    Other locations such as grocery stores do require a renewal notice, and you can only renew your registration at these locations if it is current or past due by no more than one month.  Be sure to bring current proof of insurance, your Vehicle Inspection Report, and an acceptable form of ID. Proof of current liability insurance is required of all renewals except trailers.
