If you are leaving the state of Iowa, once you have moved and registered your vehicles in your new state of residence, you may be entitled to a refund. Please send your Iowa plates back to the County Treasurers office where you last registered, along with a copy of your new out of state registration and a completed Claim for Refund form found below. Refunds for less than $10.00 will not be refunded.
Even though you will not be entitled to a refund, we recommend you return your Iowa plates to the County Treasurers office where you last registered. Please include a short note explaining why you are returning your plates. This will end your responsibility for your plates.
Please call the Story County Treasurers office, 515-382-7340 to ensure you have all documents, signatures, and information necessary to process your refund and/or disposition of plates.
