2013 Vehicle Personal Property Taxes Due October 7

News Highlights:  

  • 2013 Vehicle Personal Property Tax payments due October 7, 2013.
  • Payment in full must be received or postmarked by October 7 to avoid penalties and interest.
  • Vehicle owners who have not received a bill should contact the City immediately.

More Information:  

The City of Alexandria reminds taxpayers that their 2013 Vehicle Personal Property Tax is due October 7.  Vehicles registered in the City for all or part of the 2013 calendar year are subject to the tax. Payment in full must be received or postmarked by October 7 to avoid penalties and interest.

Lines at City Hall may be longer just prior to the due date.  The Finance Department offers six convenient ways to pay.   To avoid waiting in line, taxpayers can pay by phone, online or at a walk-in cash payment centers.

Vehicle owners who have not received a personal property tax bill should contact Personal Property Tax at or 703.746.3995, or the City’s Treasury Division at or 703.746.3902 (option 8). Taxpayers who have had a change of address and have not previously reported this change to the City should contact Personal Property Tax before the October 7 due date to have a bill provided.

The penalty for late payment is 10 percent of the net tax and late filing penalty, or $10, whichever is greater. Interest accrues at an annual rate of 10 percent for the first year and five percent for each year thereafter, beginning October 8, 2013, and continuing until all taxes and penalties are paid.

Administrative fees ($45 for delinquent balances $50 or greater, and $20 for balances between $20 and $49.99) will be assessed against balances not paid on or before November 15. There is no fee for accounts with balances less than $20.
