I am in the military; do I have to pay personal property taxes?

If your legal domicile is Virginia, your vehicle(s) is/are subject to personal property taxes from the locality where you are registered regardless of where the vehicle is garaged during your active military service. If your vehicle is titled in Virginia, but your legal domicile is not in Virginia, your vehicle is not subject to Virginia property taxes. A copy of a current LES statement is required to absolve any liability to Virginia. This statement must be filed with us each year. 


Beginning in November 2009 spouses of Servicemen who have the same legal residence of their servicemen spouse, who are here accompanying their serviceman spouse will receive the same benefit.
