Taxation without Representation - Vehicle Tags
DMV encourages all DC residents to support DC's quest for full representation in the US Congress by purchasing and displaying 'Taxation without Representation' vehicle tags. You may exchange your existing valid tags for 'Taxation without Representation' tags by paying a tag replacement fee at any DMV Service Center location.
All new registrants receive "Taxation without Representation" tags automatically. If you are obtaining new regular tags and do not want the Taxation without Representation tags, please inform the DMV employee at the time of registration, and you will receive the 'www.dc.gov' website tags.
To exchange your current tags for 'Taxation without Representation' tags, please bring the following:
- Vehicle Registration
- Valid Identification of the Registered Owner(s)
Existing Vehicle Tags
Note: If you do not surrender your existing tags, you will be liable for any tickets that may be received by the tag.
