Tax Payment Instructions

The calculation for your MVT CID tax bill is based upon property records maintained by the DC Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR), which is the government agency responsible for processing your tax payment and transferring funds to the MVT CID. While the MVT CID is not directly involved in the processing of your taxes, we want to assist you to ensure that your interaction with OTR goes as smoothly as possible.
