RE: Kansas Residency Requirements

DATE: March 6, 1992

The Department of Revenue, Division of Vehicles has received a request for an interpretation of the Kansas residency requirements. (K.S.A. 8-1,138).

According to the opinion of the Department of Revenue, Legal Services Bureau, “Residence” means, “the place which is adopted by a person as the person’s place of habitation and to which, whenever the person is absent, the person has the intention of returning. When a person eats at one place and sleeps at another, the place where the person sleeps shall be considered the person’s residence. Further, according to K.S.A. 8-1,138, if a person owns, rents, or leases a place of domicile and remains in such county for ninety (90) days, there is a rebuttable presumption of domicile and such person may be required to register their vehicle in such county”.

This interpretation could include those individuals who temporarily move into a county and own, rent, or lease a place of domicile, and remain in such county for ninety (90) days or more.
