COVID-19 Office Procedure
The Ellsworth Courthouse will open to the public May 19th at 8:00 am. In order to maintain proper social distancing, we can only have 2 customers in our office at one time. We have a sign up sheet outside our doors. You can sign up, wait in your car and we will either call you when it is your turn or come and get you.
We will not be able to process ANY driver's license at this time.
We are still encouraging customers to use our drop box or mail to complete their transactions. We will work with you via telephone or email to get these transactions completed and avoid a long wait time for in person service.
To get prices for a newly purchased vehicle:
Either scan or use your phone to take pictures of the front and back of the title. If you purchased from a dealer take a picture of the sales tax receipt also.
Email your pictures/scans to one of the email addresses listed below and we will work it up and contact you with the fees.
Here are some forms you may need:
Tag refund form
Credit card authorization form
Replacement Title form
Electronic Title Sales Agreement - This form is used to get a 60 day temporary tag when you purchase a vehicle that has an E-title due to the seller having a lien on it.
Ag Exempt form - This form is needed when a trailer, work site utility vehicle or implement of husbandry (feed wagon) is declared as agricultural usage only so that we can exempt the sales tax.
