Residents Asked to Verify Vehicle Information Online for 2013

Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue Robert S. Wertz Jr. has mailed notification of 2013 personal property filing requirements to all personal property owners currently on the county's tax rolls. This marks the fourth year that property owners are being instructed to complete the annual vehicle reporting process online. The online process replaces the need to complete and return by mail a form for each automobile, truck, motorcycle, camper, trailer, boat, motorhome, aircraft, or mobile home that taxpayers own.


This week, county residents will begin receiving notices in the mail that include an account number that they are to use to review and update personal property tax records for the 2013 tax year. Instead of completing and mailing a form, residents should report changes online at


Residents can report corrections, an address change, the sale or disposal of a vehicle, or unusually high mileage since these may affect the property's valuation or number of months to be taxed. The Commissioner asks that all changes be submitted by February 1, to assist in establishing accurate assessments for the 2013 tax year.


To avoid late filing penalties, newly acquired vehicles or those recently entering Loudoun County must be reported to the Commissioner of the Revenue within 60 days of a purchase or a move to Loudoun County. For information or filing assistance, visit or contact the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue at or by phone at 703-777-0260.


If you do not have Internet access, you may submit a written statement with any changes or stop by the Commissioner's Leesburg or Sterling office on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Leesburg office is located on the first floor of the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street S.E. The Sterling office is located at 21641 Ridgetop Circle, Suite 100.
