Motor Vehicle Registration and Taxation
There is a levy on annual registration tax on every passenger automobile, farm truck, commercial vehicle, motocycle, and recreational vehicle. The tax rate imposed varies for the type of motor vechicle being registered. The charge for vehicle registration is determined by the year and factory delivered price. There will be an excise tax of one percent (1%) on the factory delivered price (FDP) of all new vehicles. Previously owned vehicles are considered used and the excise tax is not charged on used vehicles.
To register a vehicle the tribal member will need to bring their current Oklahoma driver's license, CDIB, original title, insurance verification and any lien documents.The original title's previous owners or the seller's signature should be signed in front of a notary public, in most instances. In most cases the tag is designed to remain on the vehicle until the Comanche Nation Tax Commission authorizes a replacement and is renewed each year by means of a registration decal. If the vehicle is not being used for an extended time or is sold, the tag should be brought to the Tax Commission Office to be inactivated. The tag is tribal property.
Veteran's tags are available for enrolled Comanche Veterans. The annual registration tax levied is according to the factory delivered price of the vehicle, and year of registration at a rate equal to one-half of the amount of the tax imposed. The enrolled Comanche Veteran must bring their DD214 when they are applying for a veterans tag. Further information can be obtained by calling the Tax Commission office.
Personalized, Comanche Nation Princess, farm, motorcycle, recreational vehicles and commericials tags are authorized.
Decals are valid for a one (1) year period and must be renewed each year. The Comanche Nation Tax Commission allows a twenty (20) day grace period for renewal. When renewing your registration, please bring in a current insurance verification form and your registration, title, and CDIB.
