Kansas Cutting Back On DMV Renewal Notices
May 26, 2015

. (AP) – The Kansas Department of Revenue is planning to change the way it notifies residents that they need to renew their vehicle tags.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/1FBiwTM ) reports that the department wants to replace 2.6 million personalized vehicle renewal letters sent annually to residents with a generic postcard reminder.

Revenue department spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda says the move is aimed at saving money. The letter-to-postcard swap is expected to save the state around $500,000.

The department is leaving it up to counties to absorb the cost if they want to continue the previous method of printing and mailing the letters.
