If you were not responsible for a vehicle at the time a parking citation was issued because the vehicle was stolen, sold, or rented, you can use a notarized form to show that to the court.

1. Identify and obtain the address of the responsible party.

2. Fill out the parking non-liability affidavit (PDF, 731 KB) to show you weren't responsible for the offense.

Do not sign it without a notary public present. If you submit the form in person at a Municipal Court location, a notary public will be there.

3. Get the form notarized.

You can find a notary public on the Texas Secretary of State's website.

4. Submit the form.

By mail

Mail the notarized form to:

Austin Municipal Court
P.O. Box 2135
Austin, TX 78768

By email

Attach the form to an email to

In person

You can get the form notarized and submit it at either of the two Municipal Court locations, Main Courthouse and Jaime Padron Substation.
