8-134. Renewal of registration of certain vehicles; registration and reregistration of passenger vehicles; monthly system; decals for license plates; rules and regulations.

          (a) Every vehicle registration under this act shall expire December 31 of each year, except passenger vehicles and vehicles provided for in K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto. The registration of vehicles to which K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto, applies shall expire in 1982 and thereafter in accordance with the provisions of subsections (b) and (c). Registration of vehicles shall be renewed annually upon application by the owner and by payment of the fees required by law. Except vehicles subject to K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto, and passenger vehicles, the renewal shall take effect on January 1 of each year but the owner of the vehicle shall have until and including the last day of February of each year within which to make application for such renewal. The division shall issue for such vehicles a February month decal to correspond with the statutory grace period. Criminal sanctions provided in K.S.A. 8-142 and amendments thereto, for failure to display any license plate or plates or any registration decal required to be affixed to any such license plate for the current registration year shall not be enforced until March 1 of each year. An owner who has made proper application for renewal of registration of a vehicle prior to January 1, but who has not received the license plate or registration card for the ensuing year, shall be entitled to operate or permit the operation of such vehicle upon the highways upon displaying thereon the license plate issued for the preceding year for such time as the director of vehicles finds necessary for issuance of such new license plate.

          (b) Every passenger vehicle required by this act to be registered, except as otherwise provided, shall be registered for a period of 12 consecutive months. The division of vehicles, in order to initiate a system of registering or reregistering passenger vehicles during any month of a calendar year, may register or reregister a passenger vehicle for less than a twelve-month period, prorating the annual registration fee, when in the director’s opinion such proration tends to fulfill the purpose of the monthly registration system.

          (c) Passenger vehicle registration, and the authority to legally operate, use, or tow such vehicle on the highway shall expire at 12 midnight on the last day of the last month of the twelve-month period for which such vehicle was registered, and the owner shall see that such vehicle is reregistered as required by this act. The director of vehicles shall designate the registration period for each passenger vehicle in order to as nearly as feasible equalize registration or reregistration within the 12 months of the year. Any vehicle after having once been registered shall upon reregistration, be registered for the same twelve-month period except when the certificate of title has been transferred as provided by law. In this case, the vehicle shall be registered by the division of vehicles in accordance with the system adopted.

          (d) For the purpose of this act, hearses and electrically propelled vehicles shall be classified as passenger vehicles.

          (e) Every owner who registers or reregisters a vehicle in a calendar year, and in any calendar year in which a license plate is not issued for the renewal of registration of such vehicle, shall be furnished by the division one decal for the license plate issued for such vehicle and required by K.S.A. 8-133, and amendments thereto, to be affixed to the rear of such vehicle. Such decal shall be affixed to the number plate affixed to the rear of such vehicle and shall contain the letters designating the county in which such vehicle is registered, as provided in K.S.A. 8-147, and amendments thereto, shall indicate the license plate number for which the decal is to be affixed and shall indicate the year in which such registration expires. The color of a decal shall be such that it contrasts with the color of the license plate to which it is to be affixed, and the director of vehicles shall change the color of such decals each year, without duplicating the same color in any five-year period or such extended period as the director designates under K.S.A. 8-132 (b) and amendments thereto. Such decals shall be so constructed that once a decal has been affixed to a license plate it cannot be removed without destroying the decal, and the surface of such decals shall be capable of reflecting light. Consistent with the foregoing, the director of vehicles shall prescribe the size of and material to be used in the production of such decals, and the director of vehicles shall designate the location on a number plate where such decal shall be affixed.

          (f) (1) The owner of a vehicle may, at the time of such registration or reregistration, purchase a park and recreation motor vehicle permit. Such permit shall cost $15 until such time as the amount for such permit is changed by rules and regulations of the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism.

          (2) Such permit shall be nontransferable and shall expire on the date of expiration of the vehicle registration.

          (3) Except as provided in subsection (f)(4), the county treasurer shall remit all such moneys paid to the county treasurer to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury and shall be credited as provided in K.S.A. 32-991, and amendments thereto.

          (4) The county treasurer may collect and retain a service charge fee of up to $.50 for each park and recreation motor vehicle permit issued or sold by the county treasurer.

          (5) As a condition of receiving the park and recreation motor vehicle permit, the applicant shall consent to the sharing of information, including, but not limited to, the applicant’s name, address, email address and phone number, with the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism by the division of motor vehicles.

          (g) The secretary of revenue shall adopt rules and regulations necessary to accomplish the purpose of this act.

8-134a. Registration and reregistration of pickup trucks, motorcycles, motorized bicycles and recreational vehicles; rules and regulations.

          (a) On and after January 1, 1999, any truck or truck tractor registered for a gross weight of 12,000 pounds or less, motorcycles, motorized bicycles and recreational vehicles, as defined in K.S.A. 79-5118, and amendments thereto, shall be registered or reregistered in accordance with the provisions of subsections (b) and (c) of K.S.A. 8-134, and amendments thereto. The provisions of this section shall not apply to vehicles registered on an apportioned basis as part of a fleet under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,100 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto, or vehicles registered under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-166 et seq., and amendments thereto.

          (b) The division of vehicles, in order to initiate a system of registering or reregistering vehicles included in subsection (a) during any month of a calendar year, may register or reregister such vehicles for less than a twelve-month period, prorating the annual registration fee and taxes imposed under K.S.A. 79-5101 et seq., and amendments thereto, when in the director's opinion such tends to fulfill the purpose of the monthly registration of this section. The secretary of revenue may adopt rules and regulations for the administration of this section and to carry out the purpose of the act of which this section is a part.

History: L. 1981, ch. 36, § 1; L. 1994, ch. 237, § 10; L. 1994, ch. 320, § 1; L. 1997, ch. 119, § 3; L. 1998, ch. 140, § 1; Jan. 1, 1999.

8-135. Transfer of ownership of vehicles; registration; fees and penalties; certificate of title, form, fee; assignment and reassignment; liens, statement of, release of, liability for failure to comply, notice of security interest, execution; purchase and sale of vehicle, requirements; written consent by lienholder; transfer-on-death; reaffirmation of sale.

          (a) Upon the transfer of ownership of any vehicle registered under this act, the registration of the vehicle and the right to use any license plate thereon shall expire and thereafter there shall be no transfer of any registration, and the license plate shall be removed by the owner thereof. Except as provided in K.S.A. 8-172, and amendments thereto, and K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 8-1,147, and amendments thereto, it shall be unlawful for any person, other than the person to whom the license plate was originally issued, to have possession thereof. When the ownership of a registered vehicle is transferred, the original owner of the license plate may register another vehicle under the same number, upon application and payment of a fee of $1.50, if such other vehicle does not require a higher license fee. If a higher license fee is required, then the transfer may be made upon the payment of the transfer fee of $1.50 and the difference between the fee originally paid and that due for the new vehicle.

          (b) Subject to the provisions of subsection (a) of K.S.A. 8-198, and amendments thereto, upon the transfer or sale of any vehicle by any person or dealer, or upon any transfer in accordance with K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-3511, and amendments thereto, the new owner thereof, within 60 days, inclusive of weekends and holidays, from date of such transfer shall make application to the division for registration or reregistration of the vehicle, but no person shall operate the vehicle on any highway in this state during the sixty-day period without having applied for and obtained temporary registration from the county treasurer or from a dealer. After the expiration of the sixty-day period, it shall be unlawful for the owner or any other person to operate such vehicle upon the highways of this state unless the vehicle has been registered as provided in this act. For failure to make application for registration as provided in this section, a penalty of $2 shall be added to other fees. When a person has a current motorcycle or passenger vehicle registration and license plate, including any registration decal affixed thereto, for a vehicle and has sold or otherwise disposed of the vehicle and has acquired another motorcycle or passenger vehicle and intends to transfer the registration and the license plate to the motorcycle or passenger vehicle acquired, but has not yet had the registration transferred in the office of the county treasurer, such person may operate the motorcycle or passenger vehicle acquired for a period of not to exceed 60 days by displaying the license plate on the rear of the vehicle acquired. If the acquired vehicle is a new vehicle such person also must carry the assigned certificate of title or manufacturer's statement of origin when operating the acquired vehicle, except that a dealer may operate such vehicle by displaying such dealer's dealer license plate.

          (c) Certificate of title: No vehicle required to be registered shall be registered or any license plate or registration decal issued therefor, unless the applicant for registration shall present satisfactory evidence of ownership and apply for an original certificate of title for such vehicle. The following paragraphs of this subsection shall apply to the issuance of a certificate of title for a nonhighway vehicle, salvage vehicle or rebuilt salvage vehicle, as defined in K.S.A. 8-197, and amendments thereto, except to the extent such paragraphs are made inapplicable by or are inconsistent with K.S.A. 8-198, and amendments thereto.

          (1) An application for certificate of title shall be made by the owner or the owner's agent upon a form furnished by the division and shall state all liens or encumbrances thereon, and such other information as the division may require. Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, no certificate of title, other than a duplicate title, shall be issued for a vehicle having any unreleased lien or encumbrance thereon, unless the transfer of such vehicle has been consented to in writing by the holder of the lien or encumbrance. Such consent shall be in a form approved by the division. In the case of members of the armed forces of the United States while the United States is engaged at war with any foreign nation and for a period of six months next following the cessation of hostilities, such application may be signed by the owner's spouse, parents, brother or sister. The county treasurer shall use reasonable diligence in ascertaining whether the facts stated in such application are true, and if satisfied that the applicant is the lawful owner of such vehicle, or otherwise entitled to have the same registered in such applicant's name, shall so notify the division, who shall issue an appropriate certificate of title. The certificate of title shall be in a form approved by the division, and shall contain a statement of any liens or encumbrances which the application shows, and such other information as the division determines.

          (2) The certificate of title shall contain upon the reverse side a form for assignment of title to be executed by the owner. This assignment shall contain a statement of all liens or encumbrances on the vehicle at the time of assignment. The certificate of title shall also contain on the reverse side blank spaces so that an abstract of mileage as to each owner will be available. The seller at the time of each sale shall insert the mileage on the form filed for application or reassignment of title, and the division shall insert such mileage on the certificate of title when issued to purchaser or assignee. The signature of the purchaser or assignee is required on the form filed for application or reassignment of title, acknowledging the odometer certification made by the seller, except that vehicles which are 10 model years or older and trucks with a gross vehicle weight of more than 16,000 pounds shall be exempt from the mileage acknowledgment requirement of the purchaser or assignee. Such title shall indicate whether the vehicle for which it is issued has been titled previously as a nonhighway vehicle or salvage vehicle. In addition, the reverse side shall contain two forms for reassignment by a dealer, stating the liens or encumbrances thereon. The first form of reassignment shall be used only when a dealer sells the vehicle to another dealer. The second form of reassignment shall be used by a dealer when selling the vehicle to another dealer or the ultimate owner of the vehicle. The reassignment by a dealer shall be used only where the dealer resells the vehicle, and during the time that the vehicle remains in the dealer’s possession for resale, the certificate of title shall be dormant. When the ownership of any vehicle passes by operation of law, or repossession upon default of a lease, security agreement, or executory sales contract, the person owning such vehicle, upon furnishing satisfactory proof to the county treasurer of such ownership, may procure a certificate of title to the vehicle. When a vehicle is registered in another state and is repossessed in another state, the owner of such vehicle shall not be entitled to obtain a valid Kansas title or registration, except that when a vehicle is registered in another state, but is financed originally by a financial institution chartered in the state of Kansas or when a financial institution chartered in Kansas purchases a pool of motor vehicle loans from the resolution trust corporation or a federal regulatory agency, and the vehicle is repossessed in another state, such Kansas financial institution shall be entitled to obtain a valid Kansas title or registration. In addition to any other fee required for the issuance of a certificate of title, any applicant obtaining a certificate of title for a repossessed vehicle shall pay a fee of $3.

          (3) Dealers shall execute, upon delivery to the purchaser of every new vehicle, a manufacturer's statement of origin stating the liens and encumbrances thereon. Such statement of origin shall be delivered to the purchaser at the time of delivery of the vehicle or at a time agreed upon by the parties, not to exceed 60 days, inclusive of weekends and holidays. The agreement of the parties shall be executed on a form approved by the division. In the event delivery of title cannot be made personally, the seller may deliver the manufacturer's statement of origin by restricted mail to the address of purchaser shown on the purchase agreement. The manufacturer's statement of origin may include an attachment containing assignment of such statement of origin on forms approved by the division. Upon the presentation to the division of a manufacturer's statement of origin, by a manufacturer or dealer for a new vehicle, sold in this state, a certificate of title shall be issued if there is also an application for registration, except that no application for registration shall be required for a travel trailer used for living quarters and not operated on the highways.

          (4) The fee for each original certificate of title shall be $10 in addition to the fee for registration of such vehicle, trailer or semitrailer. The certificate of title shall be good for the life of the vehicle, trailer or semitrailer while owned or held by the original holder of the certificate of title.

          (5) Except for a vehicle registered by a federally recognized Indian tribe as provided in paragraph (16), upon sale and delivery to the purchaser of every vehicle subject to a purchase money security interest as provided in article 9 of chapter 84 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, the dealer or secured party may complete a notice of security interest and when so completed, the purchaser shall execute the notice, in a form prescribed by the division, describing the vehicle and showing the name and address of the secured party and of the debtor and other information the division requires. On and after July 1, 2007, only one lien shall be taken or accepted for vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,000 pounds or less. As used in this section "gross vehicle weight rating" shall have the meaning ascribed thereto in K.S.A. 66-1,108, and amendments thereto. The dealer or secured party, within 30 days of the sale and delivery, may mail or deliver the notice of security interest, together with a fee of $2.50, to the division. The notice of security interest shall be retained by the division until it receives an application for a certificate of title to the vehicle and a certificate of title is issued. The certificate of title shall indicate any security interest in the vehicle. Upon issuance of the certificate of title, the division shall mail or deliver confirmation of the receipt of the notice of security interest, the date the certificate of title is issued and the security interest indicated, to the secured party at the address shown on the notice of security interest. The proper completion and timely mailing or delivery of a notice of security interest by a dealer or secured party shall perfect a security interest in the vehicle as referenced in K.S.A. 84-9-311, and amendments thereto, on the date of such mailing or delivery. The county treasurers shall mail a copy of the title application to the lienholder. For any vehicle subject to a lien, the county treasurer shall collect from the applicant a $1.50 service fee for processing and mailing a copy of the title application to the lienholder.

          (6) It shall be unlawful for any person to operate in this state a vehicle required to be registered under this act, or to transfer the title to any such vehicle to any person or dealer, unless a certificate of title has been issued as herein provided. In the event of a sale or transfer of ownership of a vehicle for which a certificate of title has been issued, which certificate of title is in the possession of the transferor at the time of delivery of the vehicle, the holder of such certificate of title shall endorse on the same an assignment thereof, with warranty of title in a form prescribed by the division and printed thereon and the transferor shall deliver the same to the buyer at the time of delivery to the buyer of the vehicle or at a time agreed upon by the parties, not to exceed 60 days, inclusive of weekends and holidays, after the time of delivery. The agreement of the parties shall be executed on a form provided by the division. The requirements of this paragraph concerning delivery of an assigned title are satisfied if the transferor mails to the transferee by restricted mail the assigned certificate of title within the 60 days, and if the transferor is a dealer, as defined by K.S.A. 8-2401, and amendments thereto, such transferor shall be deemed to have possession of the certificate of title if the transferor has made application therefor to the division. The buyer shall then present such assigned certificate of title to the division at the time of making application for registration of such vehicle. A new certificate of title shall be issued to the buyer, upon payment of the fee of $10. If such vehicle is sold to a resident of another state or country, the dealer or person making the sale shall notify the division of the sale and the division shall make notation thereof in the records of the division. When a person acquires a security interest that such person seeks to perfect on a vehicle subsequent to the issuance of the original title on such vehicle, such person shall require the holder of the certificate of title to surrender the same and sign an application for a mortgage title in form prescribed by the division. Upon such surrender such person shall immediately deliver the certificate of title, application, and a fee of $10 to the division. Delivery of the surrendered title, application and tender of the required fee shall perfect a security interest in the vehicle as referenced in K.S.A. 84-9-311, and amendments thereto. On and after July 1, 2007, only one lien may be taken or accepted for security for an obligation to be secured by a lien to be shown on a certificate of title for vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating, as defined in K.S.A. 66-1,108, and amendments thereto, of 26,000 pounds or less. A refinancing shall not be subject to the limitations of this act. A refinancing is deemed to occur when the original obligation is satisfied and replaced by a new obligation. Lien obligations created before July 1, 2007, which are of a continuing nature shall not be subject to the limitations of this act until the obligation is satisfied. A lien in violation of this provision is void. Upon receipt of the surrendered title, application and fee, the division shall issue a new certificate of title showing the liens or encumbrances so created, but only one lien or encumbrance may be shown upon a title for vehicles with a gross vehicle rating of 26,000 pounds or less, and not more than two liens or encumbrances may be shown upon a title for vehicles in excess of 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight rating. When a prior lienholder’s name is removed from the title, there must be satisfactory evidence presented to the division that the lien or encumbrance has been paid. When the indebtedness to a lienholder, whose name is shown upon a title, is paid in full, such lienholder shall comply with the provisions of K.S.A. 2006 Supp. 8-1,157, and amendments thereto.

          (7) It shall be unlawful for any person to buy or sell in this state any vehicle required to be registered, unless, at the time of delivery thereof or at a time agreed upon by the parties, not to exceed 60 days, inclusive of weekends and holidays, after the time of delivery, there shall pass between the parties a certificate of title with an assignment thereof. The sale of a vehicle required to be registered under the laws of this state, without assignment of the certificate of title, is fraudulent and void, unless the parties shall agree that the certificate of title with assignment thereof shall pass between them at a time other than the time of delivery, but within 60 days thereof. The requirements of this paragraph concerning delivery of an assigned title shall be satisfied if (A) the seller mails to the purchaser by restricted mail the assigned certificate of title within 60 days, or (B) if the transferor is a dealer, as defined by K.S.A. 8-2401, and amendments thereto, such seller shall be deemed to have possession of the certificate of title if such seller has made application therefor to the division, or (C) if the transferor is a dealer and has assigned a title pursuant to paragraph (9) of this subsection (c).

          (8) In cases of sales under the order of a court of a vehicle required to be registered under this act, the officer conducting such sale shall issue to the purchaser a certificate naming the purchaser and reciting the facts of the sale, which certificate shall be prima facie evidence of the ownership of such purchaser for the purpose of obtaining a certificate of title to such motor vehicle and for registering the same. Any such purchaser shall be allowed 60 days, inclusive of weekends and holidays, from the date of sale to make application to the division for a certificate of title and for the registering of such motor vehicle.

          (9) Any dealer who has acquired a vehicle, the title for which was issued under the laws of and in a state other than the state of Kansas, shall not be required to obtain a Kansas certificate of title therefor during the time such vehicle remains in such dealer's possession and at such dealer's place of business for the purpose of sale. The purchaser or transferee shall present the assigned title to the division of vehicles when making application for a certificate of title as provided in subsection (c)(1).

          (10) Motor vehicles may be held and titled in transfer-on-death form.

          (11) Notwithstanding the provisions of this act with respect to time requirements for delivery of a certificate of title, or manufacturer's statement of origin, as applicable, any person who chooses to reaffirm the sale in writing on a form approved by the division which advises them of their rights pursuant to paragraph (7) of subsection (c) and who has received and accepted assignment of the certificate of title or manufacturer's statement of origin for the vehicle in issue may not thereafter void or set aside the transaction with respect to the vehicle for the reason that a certificate of title or manufacturer's statement of origin was not timely delivered, and in such instances the sale of a vehicle shall not be deemed to be fraudulent and void for that reason alone.

          (12) The owner of any vehicle assigning a certificate of title in accordance with the provisions of this section may file with the division a form indicating that such owner has assigned such certificate of title. Such forms shall be furnished by the division and shall contain such information as the division may require. Any owner filing a form as provided in this paragraph shall pay a fee of $10. The filing of such form shall be prima facie evidence that such certificate of title was assigned and shall create a rebuttable presumption. If the assignee of a certificate of title fails to make application for registration, an owner assigning such title and filing the form in accordance with the provisions of this paragraph shall not be held liable for damages resulting from the operation of such vehicle.

          (13) Application for a certificate of title on a boat trailer with a gross weight over 2,000 pounds shall be made by the owner or the owner’s agent upon a form to be furnished by the division and shall contain such information as the division shall determine necessary. The division may waive any information requested on the form if it is not available. The application together with a bill of sale for the boat trailer shall be accepted as prima facie evidence that the applicant is the owner of the boat trailer, provided that a Kansas title for such trailer has not previously been issued. If the application and bill of sale are used to obtain a certificate of title for a boat trailer under this paragraph, the certificate of title shall not be issued until an inspection in accordance with subsection (a) of K.S.A. 8- 116a, and amendments thereto, has been completed.

          (14) In addition to the two forms for reassignment under paragraph (2) of subsection (c), a dealer may attach one additional reassignment form to a certificate of title. The director of vehicles shall prescribe and furnish such reassignment forms. The reassignment form shall be used by a dealer when selling the vehicle to another dealer or the ultimate owner of the vehicle only when the two reassignment forms under paragraph (2) of subsection (c) have already been used. The fee for a reassignment form shall be $6.50. A dealer may purchase reassignment forms in multiples of five upon making proper application and the payment of required fees.

          (15) A first stage manufacturer, as defined in K.S.A. 8-2401, and amendments thereto, who manufactures a motor vehicle in this state, and who sells such motor vehicles to dealers located in a foreign country, may execute a manufacturers statement of origin to the division of vehicles for the purpose of obtaining an export certificate of title. The motor vehicle issued an export certificate of title shall not be required to be registered in this state. An export certificate of title shall not be used to register such vehicle in the United States.

Nothing in this or the preceding paragraph shall authorize a gross weight of a vehicle or combination of vehicles on the national system of interstate and defense highways greater than permitted by laws of the United States congress.

          Any such vehicle having a gross weight of 2,000 pounds or less may, at the owner’s option, be registered and the fee for such registration shall be as provided in paragraph (C).

          Any trailer, semitrailer or travel trailer owned by a nonresident of this state and based in another state, which is properly registered and licensed in the state of residence of the owner or in the state where based, may be operated in this state without being registered or licensed in this state if the truck or truck tractor propelling the same is properly registered and licensed in this state, or is registered and licensed in some other state and is entitled to reciprocal privileges of operation in this state, but this provision shall not apply to any trailer or semitrailer owned by a nonresident of this state when such trailer or semitrailer is owned by a person who has proportionately registered and licensed a fleet of vehicles under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,101 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto, or under the terms of any reciprocal or proration agreement made pursuant thereto.

          At the option of the owner, any trailer, semitrailer or pole trailer, with a gross weight of more than 12,000 pounds, may be issued a multi-year registration for a five-year period upon payment of the appropriate registration fee. The fee for a five-year registration of such trailer shall be five times the annual fee for such trailer. If the annual registration fee is increased during the multi-year registration period, the owner of the trailer with such multi-year registration shall be subject to the amount of the increase of the annual registration fee for the remaining calendar years of such multi-year registration. When the owner of any trailer, semitrailer or pole trailer registered under this multi-year provision transfers or assigns the title, or interest thereto, the registration of such trailer shall expire. The owner shall remove the license plate from such trailer and forward the license plate to the division of vehicles or may have such license plate assigned to another trailer, semitrailer or pole trailer upon the payment of fees required by law. Any owner of a trailer, semitrailer or pole trailer where the multi-year registration fee has been paid and the trailer is sold, junked, repossessed, foreclosed by a mechanic’s lien or title transferred by operation of law, and the registration thereon is not going to be transferred to another trailer, may secure a refund for the registration fee for the remaining calendar years by making application to the division of vehicles on a form and in the manner prescribed by the director of vehicles. The secretary of revenue may adopt such rules and regulations necessary to implement the multi-year registration of such trailers, semitrailers and pole trailers.

          (c) Any truck or truck tractor having a gross weight of 4,000 pounds or over, using solid tires, shall pay a license fee of double the amount herein charged. The annual fees herein provided for trucks, truck tractors and trailers not subject to K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto, shall be due January 1 of each year and payable on or before the last day of February in each year. If the fee is not paid by such date a penalty of $1 shall be added to the fee charged herein for each month or fraction thereof and until December 31 of each registration year. The annual registration fee for all passenger vehicles and vehicles subject to K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto, shall be due on or before the last day of the month in which the registration plate expires and shall be due for other vehicles as provided by K.S.A. 8-134, and amendments thereto. If the registration fee is not paid by such date a penalty of $1 shall be added to the fee charged herein for each month or fraction thereof until such registration fee is paid. Members of the armed forces of the United States shall be permitted to apply for registration at any time and be subject to registration fee, less penalties, applicable at the time the application is made. If any motorcycle, motorized bicycle, trailer, semitrailer, travel trailer, or pole trailer is either purchased or acquired after the anniversary or renewal date in any registration year there shall immediately become due and payable a registration fee as follows: If purchased or acquired between the anniversary or renewal date of any registration year and the first six months of such registration year, the annual fee hereinbefore provided; if purchased or acquired during the last six months of any registration year, 50% of such annual fee. If any truck or truck tractor, except trucks subject to K.S.A. 8-134a, and amendments thereto, is purchased or acquired prior to April 1 of any year the fee shall be the annual fee hereinbefore provided, but if such truck or truck tractor is purchased or acquired after the end of March of any year, the license fee for such year shall be reduced 1/12 for each calendar month which has elapsed since the beginning of the year. If any truck registered for a gross weight of 12,000 pounds or less or passenger vehicle is purchased or acquired and less than 12 months remain in the registration period, the fee shall be 1/12 of the annual fee for each calendar month remaining in the registration period.

          (d) The owner of any motorcycle, motorized bicycle, passenger vehicle, truck, truck tractor, trailer, semitrailer, or electrically propelled vehicle who fails to pay the registration fee or fees herein provided on the date when the same become due and payable shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be subject to a penalty in the sum of $1 for each month or fraction thereof during which such fee has remained unpaid after it became due and payable; and in addition thereto shall be subject to such other punishment as is provided in this act. Upon the transfer of motorcycles, motorized bicycles, passenger vehicles, trailers, semitrailers, trucks or truck tractors, on which registration fees have been paid for the year in which the transfer is made, either (1) to a corporation by one or more persons, solely in exchange for stock or securities in such corporation, or (2) by one corporation to another corporation when all of the assets of such corporation are transferred to the other corporation, then in either case (1) or case (2) the corporation shall be exempt from the payment of registration fees on such vehicles for the year in which such transfer is made. Applications for transfer or registration shall be accompanied by a fee of $1.50. When the registration of a vehicle has expired at midnight on the last day of any registration year, and such vehicle is not thereafter operated upon the highways, any application for renewal of registration made subsequent to the anniversary or renewal date of any registration year following the expiration of such registration and for succeeding registration years in which such vehicle has not been registered shall be accompanied by an affidavit of nonoperation and nonuse, and such application for renewal or registration shall be received by the division of vehicles upon payment of the proper fees for the current registration year and without penalty.

          (e) Any nonresident of Kansas purchasing a vehicle from a Kansas resident and desiring to secure registration on the vehicle in the state of such person's residence may make application in the office of any county treasurer for a sixty-day temporary registration. The county treasurer upon presentation of evidence of ownership in the applicant and evidence the sales tax has been paid, if due, shall charge and collect a fee of $3 for each sixty-day temporary license and issue a sticker or paper registration as may be determined by the director of vehicles, and the registration so issued shall be valid for a period of 60 days from the date of issuance.

          (f) Any owner of any motor vehicle which is subject to taxation under the provisions of article 51 of chapter 79 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated or any other truck or truck tractor where the annual registration fee has been paid and the vehicle is sold, junked, repossessed, foreclosed by a mechanic's lien or title transferred by operation of law, and the registration thereon is not going to be transferred to another vehicle may secure a refund for the registration fee for the remaining portion of the year by making application to the division of vehicles on a form and in the manner prescribed by the director of vehicles, accompanied by all license plates and attachments issued in connection therewith. If the owner of the registration becomes deceased and the vehicle is not going to be used on the highway, and title is not being currently transferred, the proper representative of the estate shall be entitled to the refund. The refund shall be made only for the period of time remaining in the registration year from the date of completion and filing of the application with and delivery of the license plate and attachments to the division of vehicles. Where the registration is secured under a quarterly payment annual registration fee, as provided for in K.S.A. 8-143a, and amendments thereto, such refund shall be made on the quarterly fee paid and unused and all remaining quarterly payments shall be canceled. Any truck or truck tractor having the registration fee paid on quarterly payment basis, all quarterly payments due or a fraction of quarterly payment due shall be paid before title may be transferred, except that in case of death, the filing of the application and returning of the license plate and attachment shall cancel the remaining annual payments due. Whenever a truck or truck tractor, where the registration is secured on a quarterly payment of the annual registration, the one repossessing the truck or truck tractor, or foreclosing by a mechanic's lien, or securing title by court order, the mortgagor or the assigns of the mortgagor, or the one securing title may pay the balance due on date of application for title, but the payments for the remaining portion of the year shall not be canceled unless application is made and the license plate and attachments are surrendered. Nothing in this subsection shall apply when registration is secured under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,101 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this section, no refund shall be made under the provisions of this section where the amount thereof does not exceed $5. The division of vehicles shall furnish such blank forms as may be required under the provisions of this subsection as it deems necessary to be completed by the applicant. Whenever a registration which has been secured on a quarterly basis shall be canceled as provided in this subsection, the division of vehicles shall notify the county treasurer issuing the original registration of such cancellation so that the county treasurer may, and the county treasurer shall cancel the registration of such vehicle in the county treasurer's office and release any lien issued in connection with such registration.

          (g) Every owner of a travel trailer designed for or intended to be moved upon any highway in this state shall, before the same is so moved, apply for and obtain the proper registration thereof as provided in this act, except when such unit is permitted to be moved under the special provisions relating to secured parties, manufacturers, dealers and nonresidents contained in this act. At the time of registering any travel trailer for the purpose of moving any such vehicle upon any highway in this state, the owner thereof shall indicate on the registration form whether or not such vehicle is being moved permanently to a location outside of the county in which such vehicle is being registered. No such vehicle which the owner thereof intends to move to a permanent location outside the boundaries of such county shall be registered for movement on the highways of this state until all taxes levied against such vehicle have been paid. A copy of such registration form shall be sent to the county clerk or assessor of the county to which such vehicle is being moved. When such travel trailer is used for living quarters and not operated on the highways, the owner shall be exempt from the license fees as provided in subsection (b)(9) so long as such travel trailer is not operated on the highway.

8-143a. Quarterly payment of annual registration fee by resident owner of truck or truck tractor; default fees and penalties; enforcement; tax warrants; collection; exchange of vehicle; application of lien; enforcement provisions.

          The provisions of this section shall not apply to vehicles registered on an apportioned basis as part of a fleet under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,101 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto, or any agreement made by the director of vehicles, and the payment of registration fees on a quarterly basis on such vehicles shall be in accordance with K.S.A. 8-1,115, and amendments thereto. A resident owner of any truck or truck tractor, holding a negotiable Kansas title, whether individual, partnership or Kansas corporation, may at such owner's election, made at the time the annual registration fee on such truck or truck tractor is payable, pay such annual registration fee if it exceeds $100, in equal quarterly installments, the first of which shall be payable at the time of such application but not later than the last day of February in each year, and for each ensuing quarter thereafter shall be payable respectively on the first day of April, July and October. The applicant shall, at the time of registration, present such applicant's negotiable Kansas title to the county treasurer, who shall send it, along with the application for registration, to the division of vehicles. The division of vehicles shall retain the title until all quarterly payments are paid in full, at which time the title shall be returned to the owner of the vehicle to which the title was issued.

          The provisions of the preceding paragraph shall not in any manner be construed to affect or reduce the amount of annual registration fee due for any truck or truck tractor subject to registration on January 1, and for which the owner shall be liable, but relate only to an alternate method of payment of the amount of fees due and affixed as of January 1 of each year. If any owner shall default in the payment of any quarterly installment payment when the same is payable, the right to operate such vehicle on the highways of this state shall terminate and it shall be unlawful to operate such vehicle on the highways of this state until the delinquent quarterly installment payment plus any penalty, shall have been paid in full.

          If any owner shall fail to pay any two quarterly payment installments during any one registration year on any truck or truck tractor registered hereunder, on or before the day the same are due and payable, such owner thereafter may be denied the privilege of the payment of annual registration fees on a quarterly basis on any vehicle. If a quarterly installment payment shall be delinquent more than 10 days beyond the due date of such quarterly installment except for any case where it is determined by the director of vehicles that such delinquency is not due to negligence or intentional disregard of the provisions of this section, then the entire balance of the annual registration fee, including the delinquent quarterly installment, plus a penalty in a sum equal to 10% of the annual registration fee, shall become due and payable; and any such owner so delinquent may thereafter be denied the privilege of the payment of annual registration fees on any vehicle on a quarterly basis. All such fees and penalties remaining unpaid shall constitute a debt due the state, which may be collected from the person owing the same by suit or otherwise. All such fees remaining unpaid after the same are due and payable and any penalties shall constitute a first and prior lien in favor of the state upon the truck or truck tractor registered hereunder and all other real and personal property of the owner located within the state in the amount such fees and penalties remain unpaid. Each lien shall attach at the time such unpaid fees and penalties accrue and shall be paramount to all prior liens or encumbrances of any character and to the rights of any holder of the legal title in or to any such truck or truck tractor. When a quarterly installment is delinquent more than 10 days beyond the due date, upon default of such installment payment, the county treasurer shall promptly file a notice of lien in the office of the register of deeds of the county where the registration fee is payable, and in any other county in which such owner has any property. A copy of such notice of lien shall be mailed to the division of vehicles, and the owner so delinquent, and the sheriff of any county in which such notice of lien is filed. Such notice of lien shall set forth the name and address of the owner, the amount of fees and penalties payable and unpaid, and the description of the vehicle or vehicles to which applicable. It shall be the duty of each register of deeds in this state to index and file immediately all such notices of lien in the manner provided in cases of financing statements and no fee shall be charged for filing and indexing. The county treasurer shall issue a release of lien upon payment of all fees and penalties payable by such owner and such person may file the same with the register of deeds of any county in which such notice of lien has been filed. The county treasurer shall mail a copy of the release of lien to the division, and to the sheriff of any county where said notice of lien has been filed. If a quarterly installment payment shall be delinquent more than 10 days beyond the due date of such quarterly installment, the division, shall promptly on such default and the filing of the notice of lien issue a tax warrant to the sheriff of any county in which such notice of lien has been filed and may thereafter issue further warrants as may be necessary, and such sheriff shall seize and hold all personal property subject thereto and proceed to advertise and sell the same or so much thereof as may be necessary, to satisfy the state's lien, together with all expense of selling at public sale for cash, upon such notice as is provided by law in the case of a security agreement sale.

          Any surplus of the proceeds of such sale, after paying to the county treasurer, the amount of the state's lien, and the cost of the officer in giving notice of and executing said warrant computed to the same extent as in judicial sales on execution, and of securing and preserving the property pending such sale, shall be delivered to the person lawfully entitled thereto. In the event that any truck or truck tractor for which the annual registration fee is being paid quarterly shall be sold or otherwise disposed of, the entire balance remaining unpaid on such annual registration fee shall become immediately due and payable.

          No certificate of title shall be assigned or transferred or new certificate of title be issued for such vehicle until all the registration fees and penalties are paid in full. In the event such vehicle shall be repossessed by the enforcement of a lien or security interest on the same, during any quarterly period for which the registration fees have not been paid, the person repossessing such vehicle or the person purchasing such vehicle at a repossession sale, may acquire a new certificate of title upon the payment of a fee equal to 1/4 of the annual registration fee of the vehicle registered hereunder, plus the regular fee prescribed by law for certificate of title. If any truck or truck tractor which is registered under the provisions of this subsection is exchanged or traded by the owner thereof for another truck or truck tractor, any registration fee and any quarterly installments which have been paid shall be applied to the registration fee due for the registration of the newly acquired vehicle. The application of any such registration fee or quarterly installment to the newly acquired vehicle shall not affect or reduce the original amount of the annual registration fee or any quarterly installment payment, for which such owner was originally liable.

          (a) Whenever the director shall determine that the amount of fleet registration fees paid by the owner of any fleet vehicle is less than that which the owner is required to pay under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,101 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto, the director shall mail to the owner a notice of additional fees and any penalty due and owing by the owner. Within 30 days after the mailing of such notice, the owner may request a hearing of the director relating to the fleet registration fees and penalty by filing a written request with the director. Based on the evidence presented at such hearing, the director shall make a final determination within a reasonable time and shall notify the owner of such decision, accompanied by a notice and demand for payment. If such additional fees and any penalty which are due and owing by the owner are not paid within 20 days after mailing to the owner the notice and demand for payment, the division shall withdraw the right for the owner to operate the vehicles of the owner's fleet upon the highways of this state, and deny the owner future registration of additional or replacement vehicles as part of the owner's fleet pending payment of such additional fees and any penalty. All such unpaid fleet registration fees and penalties shall constitute a first and prior lien in favor of the state upon all the property of the owner and shall attach at the time such additional fees and any penalty accrue and shall be paramount to all prior liens or encumbrances of any character and to the rights of any holder of the legal titles in or to any owner's fleet vehicles. The division of vehicles may collect the debt by filing a notice of lien in any county of the state in which the fleet owner has any property, and in any county where the vehicles of the fleet of the owner are based, and the lien and debt thereby secured may be enforced and collected by the division in the same manner and to the extent as provided in K.S.A. 8-1,115, and amendments thereto. All such fees and penalties remaining unpaid shall constitute a debt due the state of Kansas, which may be collected from the person owing the same by suit or otherwise by the director of vehicles in the name of the state.

          (b) Whenever the director shall determine that an owner has paid a larger fleet registration fee than is required under the provisions of this act, the director shall prepare a voucher showing the net amount of the overpayment refund due and the director of accounts and reports shall draw a warrant upon the state treasurer against the state highway fund for the amount certified by the director. All such warrants shall be delivered to the director who shall mail the same to the owner entitled thereto.

New apportioned fleet registration identification devices shall be issued for such replacement vehicle. If the vehicle deleted from a fleet and the replacement vehicle to such fleet are both motor vehicles, and the declared gross weight of the replacement vehicle is greater than that for which the deleted vehicle was registered, the owner thereof shall pay the difference in apportioned registration fee for the time remaining in a registration year, including the transfer fee prescribed. The provisions of this subsection shall only be applicable if the vehicle to be deleted from a fleet and the replacement vehicle to such fleet are both motor vehicles, trailers or semitrailers respectively, or the deleted vehicle is deleted or disposed of on or before the date the replacement vehicle is purchased or leased by the fleet owner.

          Any owner whose application for apportioned fleet registration has been accepted for a current registration year shall preserve such application records for the three immediate preceding years. 'Preceding year' and 'registration year' shall have the meanings ascribed to them by subsection (i) of K.S.A. 8-1,100 and subsection (a) of K.S.A. 8-1,102, and amendments thereto. Audits conducted under the provisions of this section shall be limited to the records for the current registration year and the two registration years immediately preceding the current registration year. Such records shall be made available to the division of vehicles at the director's request for audit as to accuracy of computation and payment and assessment of deficiencies or allowances for credit. The director may enter into agreements with agencies of other jurisdictions administering motor vehicle registration laws or apportioned fleet registration laws or agreements for joint audits of any such fleet owner. No assessment for deficiency or claim for credit may be made for any period for which records are no longer required. Upon audit, any sums found to be due and owing by an owner, except for any case where it is determined by the director that the amount due and owing is not due to negligence or intentional disregard, shall be subject to a penalty in a sum equal to 5% of the amount due and owing, and such amount due and owing including the penalty, shall be paid in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,104, and amendments thereto. If any owner fails to make records available to the division of vehicles upon request, or fails to maintain records from which such owner's true liability may be determined, the division of vehicles, 20 days after a written demand for available records or notification of insufficient records, may impose an arbitrary assessment of a liability based upon the division of vehicles' best estimate of the true liability of such owner as determined from information furnished by the owner, information gathered by the division of vehicles at its own instance, information available to the division concerning operations by similar owners and such other pertinent information as may be available to the division of vehicles.

Temporary apportion authorizations, upon issuance, shall be valid for a period of time determined by the director, and shall not be renewable upon expiration. The division of vehicles shall charge and collect a fee of $5 for each temporary authorization form provided an owner, which fee shall be in addition to any apportioned registration fee, title fee or any other fee or penalty applicable under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-1,101 to 8-1,123, inclusive, and amendments thereto, or prescribed by law.

8-1,115. Same; apportioned registration fee payable in quarterly installments; conditions; delinquent payments, unlawful to operate; penalty, when; lien; collection of delinquent payment, procedure; seizure and sale of property.

          (a) An owner of a fleet, the vehicles of which are based in Kansas, and which is eligible for registration under the provisions of this act, or any apportioned fleet registration agreement, reciprocity agreement, arrangement, consent, or declaration made by the director of vehicles, may elect, at the time such owner's annual apportioned fleet registration fee is payable, to pay such annual apportioned fleet registration fee in equal quarterly installments, the first of which shall be due and payable at the time of such application, but not later than March 1 in each year, and each ensuing quarter thereafter shall be due and payable respectively on the first day of April, July and October. No owner shall be eligible for payment of apportioned fleet registration fees in quarterly installments unless the annual apportioned fleet registration fee for such owner's fleet exceeds $300. The election to pay annual apportioned fleet registration fees in quarterly installments shall not be construed so as to relieve any owner of the liability for payment of the entire amount of fees which would otherwise be due for the full registration year.

          (b) If a fleet owner fails to pay any quarterly installment on or before the date the same is due and payable, the right to operate the fleet vehicles registered under the provisions of this act on the highways of this state shall terminate, and it shall be unlawful to operate such fleet vehicles on the highways of this state until the delinquent quarterly installment payment, including any penalty, shall have been paid in full.

          (c) If a quarterly installment shall be delinquent more than 10 days beyond the due date of such installment, except for any case where it is determined by the director of vehicles that such delinquency is not due to negligence or intentional disregard of the provisions of this section, the entire balance of the annual apportioned registration fee remaining, including the delinquent quarterly installment, plus a penalty in a sum equal to 10% of the annual apportioned fleet registration fee shall be due and payable. Any such fleet owner so delinquent may be denied the privilege of paying the annual apportioned fleet registration fee for ensuing registration years on a quarterly basis. All such apportioned registration fees and penalties remaining unpaid shall constitute a debt due the state, which may be collected from the person owing the same by suit or otherwise. All such apportioned fleet registration fees remaining unpaid after the same are due and payable, and any penalty thereon shall constitute a first and prior lien in favor of the state upon the vehicles of a fleet registered hereunder and all other real and personal property of the fleet owner located within the state in the amount that such fees and penalty remain unpaid. Such lien shall attach at the time such unpaid fees and penalty accrue, and shall be paramount to all prior liens or encumbrances of any character, and to the rights of any holder of the legal title in or to any such fleet vehicles.

          (d) When any installment payment has been delinquent more than 10 days, the division of vehicles shall forthwith file a notice of lien in the office of the register of deeds of the county where the principal place of business of such fleet owner is located, or any county where the vehicles of such fleet are based, or any other county in which such owner has any property. A copy of such notice of lien shall be mailed to the delinquent fleet owner. The notice of lien shall set forth the name and address of the fleet owner, the amount of the apportioned fleet registration fee and penalty payable and unpaid, and a description of the fleet vehicles to which applicable. It shall be the duty of each register of deeds in this state to index and file immediately all such notices of lien in the manner provided in the cases of financing statements, and no fee shall be charged for filing and indexing. The division of vehicles shall issue a release of lien upon payment of the apportioned fleet registration fee and penalty payable by such fleet owner, and such person may file the same with the register of deeds of any county in which such notice of lien has been filed, and no fee shall be charged for the release of lien.

          Upon filing the notice of lien, the division of vehicles shall issue a tax warrant to the sheriff of any county in which the notice of lien has been filed and may issue further warrants as may be necessary, and such sheriff shall seize and hold all personal property subject thereto and proceed to advertise and sell the same or so much thereof as may be necessary, to satisfy the state's lien, together with all expenses of selling at public sale for cash, upon such notice as is provided by law in the case of a security agreement sale. Any surplus of the proceeds of such sale, after paying to the division of vehicles the amount of the state's lien, the officer's cost of giving notice of and executing said warrant computed to the same extent as in judicial sales on execution, and the cost of securing and preserving the property pending such sale, shall be delivered to the person lawfully entitled thereto.

8-1,116. Same; sale of fleet vehicle not to affect liability for fee payment; addition of vehicle, transfer of registration; fees; loss of vehicle not being replaced, refund; conditions of refund.

          (a) If a fleet owner sells or otherwise disposes of a vehicle which is part of such owner's fleet registered hereunder, the sale or disposal of such vehicle shall not affect or reduce such fleet owner's obligation or liability to pay the annual apportioned registration fee for such fleet or any apportioned quarterly installments for such fleet as determined by such fleet owner's original application.

          (b) If any vehicle which is part of a fleet registered under the provisions of this act is disposed of by the fleet owner, and such owner desires to register an additional or newly acquired vehicle during the registration year, and such additional or newly acquired vehicle is eligible for and part of the owner's apportioned fleet, such additional or newly acquired vehicle may be registered as part of such owner's fleet for the remainder of the registration year without the payment of an additional apportioned registration fee, other than transfer fee and title fee, if the annual apportioned fleet registration fee applicable for the additional or newly acquired vehicle is the same as that of the vehicle which is being deleted by such owner. If the annual apportioned registration fee for the additional or newly acquired vehicle is greater than the annual apportioned registration fee for the vehicle being deleted, such fleet owner shall pay the full difference in apportioned registration fee. No certificate of title shall be assigned or transferred or a new certificate of title be issued for any vehicle which is part of such owner's fleet when such fleet owner is delinquent in the payment of apportioned fleet registration fees.

          (c) Any owner of a truck or truck tractor based in Kansas and registered as a vehicle in a fleet registered on an apportioned basis for which applicable apportioned registration fees have been paid, which truck or truck tractor is sold, junked, repossessed, foreclosed by a mechanic's lien or has had title transferred by operation of law, and which vehicle is not being replaced in the fleet by another motor vehicle, may secure a refund by making application to the division of vehicles on a form provided and prescribed by the director of vehicles. Such refund shall include only the portion of the fee applicable to the Kansas apportioned registration fee for that vehicle for the remaining portion of the registration year. Such application for refund shall be accompanied by the Kansas base plate issued for that vehicle and the cab card issued therewith. In the event the owner of such vehicle is deceased and such vehicle will not be used on the highways, and title is not currently being transferred, the proper representative of the estate shall be entitled to such refund. Where the vehicle is registered on an apportioned basis under a quarterly fleet registration, as provided in K.S.A. 8-1,115, and amendments thereto, such refund shall be made on the apportioned quarterly fee paid and unused and all remaining quarterly payments applicable to such motor vehicle shall be canceled. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this section, refunds shall be made under the provisions of this section only where the amount exceeds $50.

          Whenever any person, or owner, as payment for any fees or penalty provided by this act presents a check on a bank in which such person has no money on deposit, or in which there is insufficient money on deposit for the payment of such check upon presentation, the division of vehicles shall immediately provide notice to the owner of a fleet registered hereunder that such owner's right to operate the vehicles of such fleet upon the highways of Kansas has been suspended. Upon the owner's receiving notice aforesaid, such owner shall return the identification devices issued for the vehicles of such owner's fleet or remit full payment to cover the amount of the insufficient or no fund check together with a penalty of ten dollars ($10) to the division of vehicles. If the insufficient or no fund check is not replaced by appropriate payment and penalty within ten (10) days of the date of notice, the division of vehicles may collect the debt by filing a notice of lien in the same manner and to the extent as provided in K.S.A. 8-1,115.
