Board of Supervisors Adopts Penalty For Not Properly Displaying Virginia License Plate
Sept. 11, 2013
Following a public hearing at the Sept. 10 meeting, the Board of Supervisors adopted a $250 penalty to coincide with Fairfax County’s existing $100 No Plate Tax. Combined, the No Plate Tax and penalty is now $350, effective Wednesday, Sept. 11.
The No Plate Tax refers to the tax and penalty on vehicles that are owned by Fairfax County residents who do not properly display Virginia license plates within 30 days of purchase or move-in of a vehicle. This applies to vehicles that are normally garaged or parked in Fairfax County and are subject to Virginia’s vehicle licensing laws. The No Plate Tax and penalty is a local charge authorized by state law.
In addition to the No Plate Tax, affected vehicles owners also will be billed the applicable Personal Property (Car) Tax. The tax does not apply to certain residents such as active military or active military spouses who co-own a vehicle.
