Reduced Vehicle Tax Rate for Qualifying Disabled Veterans

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted a lower Vehicle Tax rate of $0.01 per $100 of assessed value on one motor vehicle owned and regularly used by a qualifying disabled veteran in accordance with the Code of Virginia §58.1-3506(A)(19).

The reduced Vehicle Tax rate is subject to adoption by the Board of Supervisors during their deliberation on the County’s annual budget process.

By statute:

  • Only one vehicle may be taxed at the lower rate for each qualifying disabled veteran.
  • Disabled veterans need only apply once, but must contact our office to receive the lower rate on a different vehicle should the approved vehicle be otherwise moved, sold, or disposed.
  • Co-ownership does not prevent a disabled veteran from qualifying for the lower rate. The reduced rate however, does not apply to a vehicle owned solely by a spouse or a surviving spouse.

Applicants will be required to provide official documentation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that verifies the disabled veteran has been rated by such agency to have a "100% service-connected, permanent, and total disability or has either lost, or lost the use of, one or both legs, or an arm or a hand, or who is blind."

We will review your application and contact you directly if further information is required. Otherwise, you will be notified once your application and reduced tax rate has been approved.
