We determine numerically in two space dimensions the anomalous exponents of structure functions of the velocity , the magnetic field and the Elsässer variables up to order eight. To that effect, we make use of new exact relationships derived recently for mixed third-order correlators. These exponents are compared to existing models of intermittency for either neutral or MHD flows, none of which seem to apply, possibly indicative of a more complex behavior for MHD flows than for neutral fluids.
