webDEALER Available to More Dealers
Starting next month, September 1, county tax assessors-collectors are required to make webDEALER available . . .
Starting next month, September 1, county tax assessors-collectors are required to make webDEALER available to any licensed independent automobile dealer in Texas. For years many used car dealers have not had full access to webDEALER. However, after the passage of SB 604 in the 86th legislative session, that is about to change.
TxDMV has been training tax assessor-collectors and regional service centers to help with this transition. However, counties still have significant latitude in who they deputize as dealer deputies and the requirements vary from county to county. If you are interested in becoming a dealer deputy you should reach out to your county to better understand the requirements and/or qualifications.
Dealers can find self-help videos on the TxDMV website that explain what webDEALER is and how to use the system. Once you get to the TxDMV page, simply scroll to the bottom and select the webDEALER tab.
