Methods of payment vary by county, so it is best to contact the Treasurer ahead of time if you are unsure of what payment forms are accepted. Note that all of the owners listed on the lost title must sign the application, and all signatures must be notarized. If you requested an address change on your car title during this process, the new information should be reflected on the copy you receive of your title.
