MVA Tax Certifications
The MVA has implemented a process for immigrants, applying for a driver's license or ID card, that requires them to obtain a certification of tax filings for the preceding two years from the Comptroller’s Office. The MVA requires MVA applicants to obtain online certification of tax filings. For those applicants who are not able to obtain on-line certification, the Comptroller’s Office offers an online scheduling process allowing MVA applicants to schedule an appointment to visit one of our twelve branch offices to obtain the required certification of tax filings.
For more information on MVA’s process, please visit MVA’s website at: www.mva.maryland.gov. For more information about getting your Tax Certification, visit Obtain MVA Tax Certifications.
