Effective Tuesday March 22, waiting in line at the Sedgwick County Tag Offices can be a thing of the past. The Sedgwick County Treasurer has implemented a new process similar to the Driver's License Offices that allows you to "get in line" by cell phone.
The new system allows customers to "get in line" from a cell phone with texting capabilities, a personal computer, or by coming into a tag office and pulling a number.
To get in line using your cell phone, text 316-395-2940 with one of the following messages based on the tag location you want to use:
"SGBRITTANYTAG" for the Brittany Office located at 2120 N. Woodlawn
"SGMURDOCKTAG" for the main office located at 200 W. Murdock
"SGCHADSWORTHTAG" for the Chadsworth Tag Office located at 2330 N. Maize
"SGDERBYTAG" for the Derby Tag Office located at 212 W. Greenway, Derby
Using a computer, go to http://www.sedgwickcounty.org/treasurer. Customers using the virtual waiting line process will be asked to provide their last name, first name, and phone number. The customer will receive notification as to how long their estimated wait time is and will continue to receive updates every 30 minutes.
If you don't have access to a cell phone or PC, you can go into your preferred tag office and use the QLess kiosk where a number will be drawn using a touch screen monitor. Their place in line will be displayed on big screen monitors on the wall. Once selected, they will be advised by voice prompts to an assigned station.
"We've heard the pleas from our customers, we understand and respect their valuable time. Our expectation is that customers will no longer have to take an entire day off work to renew a tag or have title work done," said Sedgwick County Treasurer Linda Kizzire.
