Car tag sales revenue benefits roads, schools and law enforcement within the Cherokee Nation. In April 2013, the Cherokee Nation gave $3.2 million to 92 school districts from the sale of motor vehicle tags.
More schools now in all of Mayes, Muskogee, Rogers, Tulsa and Wagoner counties, which were formerly outside the jurisdiction, will be eligible to receive proceeds from the sale of Cherokee license plates.
Citizens may purchase a Cherokee Nation license plate at any of the five Cherokee Nation tag offices, which are located in Adair, Collinsville, Jay, Sallisaw and Tahlequah. In addition to the documents required by state tag agency offices, Cherokee citizens are also required to show their tribal citizenship (blue) card and an Oklahoma driver’s license with their physical address. Cherokee Nation tag offices will also accept other proof of physical address, such as a utility bill.
For any questions, please call the Cherokee Nation Tax Commission at (918) 453-5100.
