Not a Manatee County resident? Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents needing to process title and/or registration transactions for vehicles, boats, and mobile homes can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.
When registering a boat, $2.75 is retained by the Tax Collector as a service fee with the remaining funds deposited into the Marine Resources Conservation Trust Fund for apportion and distribution as set forth in Section 328.72(1), F.S. When you make application for title or complete a title transfer, $4.75 is retained by the Tax Collector with the remaining funds also being deposited into the above trust fund.
