Certificate of Clean Hands

Image for Clean Hands Certificate

The District of Columbia “Clean Hands” mandate (D.C. Code § 47-2862) stipulates that individuals and businesses are to be denied City goods or services (e.g. licenses, permits, grants, contracts) if there is a debt owed to the District of Columbia of more than $100 for fees, fines, taxes, or penalties; and/or failure to file required District tax returns.

The Office of the Chief Financial Officer, Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) facilitates administration and compliance of the Certificate of Clean Hands (CCH) mandate by providing individuals and businesses online self-service capability to generate or, in certain circumstances, request a “Clean Hands” certificate.

Taxpayers requesting a Certificate of Clean Hands can do so online at MyTax.DC.gov.
