New Vehicle Registration Fee in 2010 Personal Property Bills
July 19, 2010
2010 Fairfax County Personal Property Tax bills are being mailed to residents during the next several weeks and are due on Oct. 5. The bill includes a new $33 registration fee for cars ($38 for vehicles in excess of 4,000 pounds) normally located in the county as of July 1, 2010. There is no county windshield decal to purchase or display. Residents living within the towns of Clifton, Herndon and Vienna have additional decal and/or fee requirements; contact your respective town for more information.
Fairfax County residents, including town residents, must register vehicles with the Department of Tax Administration that are normally garaged or parked in Fairfax County, even if the vehicle is registered in another state. Failure to locally register vehicles on time will result in additional penalties. Register online or call 703-222-8234 (TTY 703-222-7594). In addition, make sure your address is correct with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
