Loudoun County Vehicle Decal Requirement Eliminated

Loudoun County vehicle owners no longer have to display a Loudoun County decal on their vehicle's windshield.

The Board of Supervisors eliminated the decal requirement effective July 1, 2018, converting the vehicle decal fee to a $25 annual vehicle license fee requirement. Billing for the license fee will begin in 2019. Residents of the county's incorporated towns should contact their town government for specific information about decal requirements for town residents.

In a concurrent move, the Board of Supervisors approved the Treasurer's Office assuming responsibility for the billing, collection, and administration of real and personal property taxes in the incorporated towns. Memorandums of Agreement have been completed with Hillsboro, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg and Round Hill. Billing for real estate taxes will begin January 1, 2019. Billing for personal property taxes will begin January 1, 2020. The towns of Purcellville and Hamilton are not participating.

With the transition from decals to license fees, Project Fairness – an enforcement method for vehicle decals – has been eliminated. The responsibility for personal property tax enforcement has moved to the Commissioner of the Revenue's Office.

For questions about the new vehicle license fee, contact the Office of the Treasurer at 703-777-0280 or email
