Wichita Tax Commission

The Wichita Tax Commission was established on January 28, 1993, by Resolution WT-93-17 enacting Chapter One of the Wichita General Revenue and Taxation Act of 1993. The Wichita Tax Commission was created to provide for the administration and enforcement of the Taxation Laws of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

 

 

The State of Oklahoma recently passed legislation converting Oklahoma from a non-title holding jurisdiction to a title holding jurisdiction and authorized the use of electronic titles and liens in lieu of paper titles and liens.  Non-title holding jurisdictions send the vehicle title directly to the vehicle owner to hold until the loan is paid off.  Conversely, title-holding jurisdictions require that the lienholder hold the vehicle title until the loan is paid off.  Oklahoma's actions are in line with trends across the country, as forty-two states have converted to title-holding jurisdictions and twenty-five states have authorized the use of electronic titles and liens.

 

The Wichita Tribe revised Section 512 of the Wichita General Revenue and Taxation Act Tax  to become a title-holding jurisdiction like Oklahoma.   First, "original titles" would only be issued to the first owner of the vehicle if that person purchased the vehicle without a loan, meaning there is no lien on the vehicle.  Second, "transfer titles" will only be issued to owners of used vehicles if the vehicle is free and clear of any lien.  Lastly, a new category of vehicle titles will be created that will be issued directly to the lienholder when the vehicle with a lien is registered with the Wichita Tribe.  In all instances, a vehicle owner will not receive a Wichita title for their vehicle until the title is cleared of all liens.  

 

If the tribal member does not possess the title because it is with the lienholder, the tribal member can provide a proof of purchase in lieu of the title.  The Wichita title can then be issued to the current lienholder upon registration using the proof of purchase.  For further information, please call the Tag Agent at 405-247-8668, Tax Administrator at 405-933-3486, or WTC Administrative Assistant at 405-933-3976.
