Vehicle Personal Property Tax
Any motor vehicle normally garaged, stored, or parked in the county or on a United States military base within the geographic boundaries of the county, including Fort Belvoir, and registered in this state or any other jurisdiction must be registered with Fairfax County.
Vehicles owned by full-time active duty service members who maintain a state of residence or domicile outside of Virginia may be exempted from local taxation upon application to the Department of Tax Administration. A qualifying spouse authorized to travel with an exempt military service member and who also maintains a residence outside of Virginia and who resides in Fairfax County in order to live with the service member may also qualify for exemption under the Military Spouses Residency Relief Act (MSRRA, Public Law No. 111-97), whether the vehicle is co-owned with the service member or owned individually by the spouse. Proof of domicile is required.
