Out-of-State Transfer of Kentucky Vehicle
Kentucky Certificate of Title with assignment of title properly completed & notarized with notary seal. The title is then presented to the out of state purchaser so they can title & register the vehicle in their state.
Affidavit of Non-Exchange Form #TC96-167 [PDF - 19KB] must be submitted for all vehicles sold out of state. The registered owner must sign this form and have signature notarized. If County Clerk staff notarizes signatures, identification must be presented.
Note: If the out of state transfer occurred after January 1st of the current tax year, the seller will be responsible for the taxes for that tax year. If the sale occurred before January 1st the tax can be exonerated. It is advised that the sellers make a copy of the front & back of the title to present to the Property Valuation Administrator so that the tax may be exonerated.
