DMV/VERIFI Tip of the Week, #99
Reminder: Acceptable Reasons to Issue Secure Paper MV-50s
Since NYS DMV announced on 05/05/2020 that dealers should use eMV-50s on ALL transfers – see TOTW #86 entitled “NHTSA Rule Change” – secure paper MV-50s may only be used under the following circumstances:
- Power Outage
- Internet Outage (including VERIFI system outage)
- Private Sector Partner Outage
- Correction/Retain Original Sale Date
NYS DMV recommends documenting any outages, to the extent possible, via a screenshot or other record, and promptly contacting the VERIFI Help Desk at 1-833-VERIFI-NY upon encountering any VERIFI accessibility issues. Note that issuing secure paper MV-50s for reasons other than those listed above is a violation of DMV regulations and may invite administrative action against noncompliant dealers.
