No. Medallion taxicab owners are no longer required to display tax stamps on their windshield and you will not receive one.

TLC will enforce if you do not pay CMVT and Finance will provide them with data about who has paid.

When you pay online, you will receive a receipt by email. When you pay by check, your cancelled check is proof of payment. Please keep copies of everything you send us. If you send your payment by mail, we encourage you to mail with return receipt so that you have a record of when you sent us your payment.
