Just bought a used boat from a private party. I have all the forms and paperwork for registration. I am having trouble finding a local tax office (I live in Frisco)that will process a boat registration and trailer? The number I call for the Denton location is a recording. Anyone dealt with this recently or know of a better option than going to Garland or Fort Worth TPWD office and then to tax office?
Don't know of any other TPWD offices around the area. The trailer you will have to get registered at the tax office. Make sure you have a bill of sale with you when registering the boat. And watch the gross weight of the trailer when registering, try and keep it under 4500 lbs so you won't have to worry about the trailer inspection.

Actually odd that your local tax office will not handle it for you. The small local tax office here in Somervell County had all the paperwork and handled a boat purchase and a fourwheeler purchase just like they handle my automobile registrations. They had all the forms and took care of the title transfers.
