UPDATED June 8, 2020

Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX (March 18, 2020) – Staying at home as much as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic? Good for you! While most Hays County offices and services are staffed in their offices as of March 18, you can take care of many Hays County services online; below are a few. Remember that this is a quickly changing situation, so if you plan to visit a Hays County Office in person, please visit that department’s web page at https://hayscountytx.com and call or email the office.

Payment information is also on each office’s page. Choose from the drop-down tabs at the top for the specific department you are interested in. If you need assistance in determining what Office/Department you need to make a payment to, contact the Treasurer’s Office at 512-393-2236 or e-mail at Treasurer@co.hays.tx.us.

But first, read this information from the State of Texas about waivers to certain requirements:

Governor Abbott issued a statement on March 16, 2020, granting a temporary extension to obtain initial registration, renewal of registration, and renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard. Governor Abbott also granted a temporary extension for an individual with an expired 30-day temporary permit to obtain another permit or Texas registration.

More recently, Governor Abbott temporarily waived renewal of driver licenses, and ordered Driver License Offices to close. This suspension will be in effect until 60 days after the DPS provides further public notice that normal Driver License operations have resumed.

The temporary waiver grants an extension for initial issuance of registration, renewal of registration, renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard, and issuance of a 30-day temporary permit needed to operate a vehicle on public roads. The TxDMV will provide notice when normal registration, permanent disabled parking placard renewal and permit issuance services have resumed. 

The waiver is in effect until 60 days after TxDMV notifies the public that normal vehicle registration, vehicle titling and related services has resumed.

The purpose of the waiver is to prevent customers from having to physically visit a county tax assessor-collector office to obtain initial registration or a 30-day temporary permit (when the person’s 30-day temporary permit expired); or to renew registration or a permanent disabled parking placard. Customers may continue to renew their registration online at
www.texas.gov.
