MVA Tax Certifications

Effective January 1, 2014, the MVA implemented a new process for immigrants, applying for a drivers license or ID card that will require them to obtain a certification of tax filings for the preceding two years from the Comptroller’s Office. The agency is currently fine tuning procedures for MVA applicants requiring certification of tax filings. By November 1, an on-line process to obtain on-line certification of tax filings will be available. In addition, for those applicants who are not able to obtain on-line certification, the Comptroller’s Office will offer an online scheduling process that will allow MVA applicants to schedule an appointment to visit one of our twelve branch offices to obtain the required certification of tax filings. Please continue to check our website for the most up to date information.

For more information on MVA’s implementation of this new law please visit MVA’s website at:  For more information about getting your Tax Certification, visit Obtain MVA Tax Certifications.
