Local Motor Vehicle License Fee

Arlington County Code §27-11.1 requires all vehicles, including automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles to be listed for property taxes within sixty (60) days of the vehicle being garaged (regularly parked) in Arlington County.  

The Arlington County Board has eliminated the annual Motor Vehicle License Fee (MVL) for Arlington residents as of January 1, 2022.  Vehicle accounts that are assessed the MVL fee for any year prior to 2022 remain due and payable to the Arlington County Treasurer.

For more information about personal property tax relief, or to find out if you qualify for an exemption, email the Commissioner of Revenue’s Office or call 703-228-3135.
