Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be an Enrolled Muscogee (Creek) Nation citizen
  • Must reside within the jurisdictional boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Tax Commission deals primarily with the titling and registration of personal vehicles, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, trailers, farm trucks and trailers, and all-terrain vehicles.   Each citizen is eligible for up to two discounted vehicles; this includes veteran, handicap, and elderly.  At the moment, we do not tag boats or manufactured homes.

New Registrations

New registrations require that the tribal member come into the office.  We understand that certain circumstances are unavoidable, such as work, school, etc., that will hinder the citizen from coming into the office.  In the event that this happens, the citizen may delegate a signature authority in their absence by completing the Muscogee delegate form.  Their delegate must bring this notarized form in along with a copy of the citizen’s driver’s license and citizenship card. Depending on what type of registration you are doing, there may be a different registration tax rate that is used in calculating your fees.  You may use this link if you would like to estimate a quote on your own or please feel free to call the office to have a Motor Vehicle Revenue Agent assist you.

Renewals

Renewal letters are printed out once monthly as a reminder of when your decals are due.  You may renew your decals by coming into the office or by mail.  Payment along with your current insurance may be mailed to MCN Tax Commission, PO Box 579, Okmulgee, OK  74447.  Please verify that the effective date, expiration date and VIN (vehicle identification number) are accurate.  Please contact the office if you are mailing in a late renewal so that a Motor Vehicle Revenue Agent can calculate the late penalties.

Payment Types:

We accept cash, check, or money order.  Temporary and out of state checks are not accepted.  Please write your driver’s license number, the expiration date, your date of birth, along with two phone numbers on your check.  At the moment, on-line or credit card payments are unavailable.

If you sell, trade, or give your vehicle away, take the tag off and inform the office so that we can make the tag inactive. 

All vehicles (except travel trailers and All-Terrain Vehicles) require insurance. 

We do not black tag.
