Commissioner of the Revenue Mails Personal Property Tax Notices

Robert S. Wertz Jr., Loudoun's Commissioner of the Revenue, has mailed notification of 2015 personal property filing requirements to all vehicle owners currently on the county's tax rolls. Personal property includes automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, campers, trailers, boats, motorhomes, aircraft, and mobile homes. 
This week, residents will begin receiving notices in the mail with an account number and instructions that they will use to review and update their personal property tax records for the 2015 tax year. The Commissioner's office mailed 181,624 notices. Implemented six years ago, the online process allows citizens to review and update information on the more than 350,000 vehicles now located in the county. Residents can access their personal property information at www.loudoun.gov/vehicle-file
Residents can report corrections, an address change, the sale or disposal of a vehicle, or unusually high mileage since these factors may affect the property's valuation or the number of months a vehicle is taxed in the county. The Commissioner requests that all changes be submitted by the extended deadline of Feb. 2, 2015, to assist in establishing accurate assessments for the 2015 tax year.  Since the annual Feb. 1 deadline falls on the weekend this year, the due date is extended to the next business day.
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 purchase or move to Loudoun County.
For information or filing assistance, visit www.loudoun.gov/cor or contact the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue by email at ppdcor@loudoun.gov or by phone at 703-777-0260.  You may also stop by the Leesburg office in the Loudoun County Government Center at 1 Harrison Street or the Sterling office at 21641 Ridgetop Circle. Regular office hours are weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
