What if I miscalculate DC DMV fees?

  • If your check in payment to DC DMV for DMV fees is not exact, DMV will not process the work. 
  • If your payment is short, you can then send the required additional fees.  You can request Tag Man to advance a reasonable amount to expedite the work.
  • If your payment is over, you can then send a check for the correct amount.  You can request Tag Man to replace your check with a Tag Man Check.
