Leased Vehicles

Leased vehicles normally parked or garaged in Fairfax County must be registered within 60 days of lease or move-in. Leasing companies must register vehicles with Fairfax County. The vehicle is registered in the name of the leasing company, and the car tax bills are sent directly to the leasing company for payment.

Vehicles leased by a qualified military service member and/or spouse will receive a 100% state vehicle tax subsidy (PPTRA) as a tax credit on the first $20,000 of assessed value. The credit will be reflected on the bill, but the leased vehicle remains fully taxable on any remaining assessed value in excess of $20,000. Contact the Department of Tax Administration to claim and document military eligibility.

You may register your leased vehicle on-line using our Vehicle Registration Tool or download a Vehicle Registration Form.
