About the Ichabod license plates

  • Cost: Obtaining or renewing a Washburn license plate usually requires a $50 annual contribution per plate, but the Alumni Association gives you the option of making the annual payment. It is not required every year.
  • You can still make the annual payment if you would like to make the payment and contribute to our scholarship fund. Consult your tax preparer to see if donations are tax-deductible.
  • You purchase the plate from the county and pay a one-time personalized plate fee of $45.50 to the county treasurer’s office, plus all applicable annual registration fees, county service fees and vehicle personal property tax.
  • Who can purchase a plate: Anyone with a car or truck registered in Kansas. The vehicle weight limit is 20,000 pounds.
  • Renewing your plate: About two months before your tag expires, the Alumni Association will send you a renewal notice. Return it and we’ll mail you a certification form to present to your county treasurer’s office for renewal. Note: To avoid additional fees at the treasurer's office, you can fill out this online form for renewal.
