TAHLEQUAH – Cherokee Nation officials have urged all clients to use the online motor vehicle tag renewal option ever since all CN Tax Commission tag offices closed on March 23 to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Since closing, CNTC officials have stated there has been an uptick in online renewals.
“We normally have an average of 50 to 75 renewals per day and now we are getting on the average about 300 a day,” CNTC Administrator Sharon Swepston said.
Online renewals are for regular vehicles, motorcycles, travel trailers and personalized tags for those vehicles, she said.
To register online, go to https://tagoffice.cherokee.org/online-tag-renewal/
and click on the online tag renewal link.
“They will have to have the registration number of the citizen that registered the vehicle, the VIN number and the insurance information. They must verify that the mailing address is correct and will need a credit card for payment,” Swepston said. “Any tag renewal such as handicap, farm, commercial, veteran that requires additional documents will have to be mailed in.”
Swepston said documents that need to be mailed can be sent to Cherokee Nation Attn: Tag Office P.O. Box 948, Tahlequah, OK 74465. If documents are mailed via UPS or FedEx, they need to be mailed to Cherokee Nation Attn: Tag Office 17675 S. Muskogee Ave. Tahlequah, OK 74464.
