    I have never heard of such a card - which doesn't mean to say that they don't exist, of course! In the UK, if you want to pay local authority taxes in cash at the town hall, a bank or the post office, they issue you with a book of paying-in slips (deposit slips) which contain your details and the authority's bank details and you take one of those along with your cash to wherever you are going to make the payment.

    It could well be that some central or local authorities issue the sort of cards you are talking about, in which case I would guess that they would be simply called a payment card.

    Hi, Dani C.! Acquittance is something different - here are a couple of definitions from online dictionaries which explain it better than I could!

    Merriam-Webster: A document evidencing a discharge from an obligation; especially : a receipt in full (http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/acquittance)

    Hutchinson Encyclopaedia: Payment of, or release from, debt; full receipt (http://www.tiscali.co.uk/reference/dictionaries/difficultwords/data/d0000195.html)

    The Free Dictionary: A written release from an obligation, specifically a receipt indicating payment in full (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/acquittance)

    Hope that helps!

    DRAE
    Carta de pago
    Documento en que el acreedor confiesa haber recibido el importe o parte de la deuda.

    Therefore, I think carta de pago is indeed acquittance or proof of payment.

    The paying-in / deposit slips to which Janet refers are called in Spain Talones de Cargo.

    The method is as follows: the authority gives you both a Talón de Cargo (that tells the Bank what to do with the money, and that sometimes is called "Ejemplar para la entidad colaboradora", i.e., the Bank), and a Carta de Pago, which, duly signed / stamped by the Bank, is the document that acts as proof of payment.

    You may get a clearer idea with the following Form, which is actually the same form with four different uses / names: For the Taxpayer, For the Treasury Department, Acquittance (Carta de pago) and For the collaborating entity (Para la entidad colaboradora; this would be the Talón de Cargo / Paying in slip; in fact, in the guidance notes of the form, it is called a Talón de Cargo, and not Ejemplar para la entidad colaboradora).

    Reference: search for Modelo 620 de la Agencia Tributaria. It seems that I can't link the page, as I am a newbie here.
