About ten years ago, I bought a fairly new pickup. I took the title and all the related paperwork to the tag office closest to me, and proceeeded to have to go back 7 times. First time, the seller forgot to write their middle name as the seller, second time they said the seller had put a line under the cent amount, third time, the odometer reading was off by 100 miles, etc, etc. After the 7th time, I got fed up with them, tore all the extra notaraized documantation off the title, went to another tag office a couple miles further away. I walked in, handed them the original title and paperwork, and walked out with everything done like it was supposed to be in 10 minutes.
The moral of this story is, go to another tag office, if possible.
