All cities and counties in Virginia have a personal property tax. Arlington County taxes cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, motor homes, trailers, semitrailers, boats and aircraft. Vehicles are also required to display a county decal.
Vehicle personal property taxes are assessed by the Commissioner of Revenue’s Office based on the tax rate set by the County Board and the value of your vehicle.
Due Date –Residents without Newly Registered Vehicles
The due date is the same every year. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, late payment penalties will not be assessed for payments made on the following business day.
