(WICHITA, Kan.)—FactFinder 12 has learned a computer error in Topeka is delaying title work for more than 25,000 people.
Warren Krueger is one of them. He bought a motorcycle and can’t get a tag for it.
“It's pretty bad when I’m making payments on a motorcycle I can't ride,” says Krueger.
FactFinder 12 has learned Krueger is among 26,000 other Kansans whose titles were delayed.
“Topeka told me they got the title on November 23rd. Here it is January 11th and I still don't have a title.”
The state says it was a computer error and failed to print some titles going back to October. A spokesperson with the Kansas Department of Revenue says the error was discovered last week.
The state is working through the backlog and should be caught up by the end of next week.
Of the 26,000 that were delayed, the state says there are about 10,000 remaining.
It will work with people on an individual basis if the delay causes the person to pay penalties.
