Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue Robert S. Wertz Jr. has mailed notification of 2018 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 2018 tax year. The online process allows citizens to review and update information on the more than 380,000 vehicles now located in the county. Citizens can access their personal property information online at www.loudoun.gov/efile utilizing their tax identification number, ZIP code and unique account number which is displayed on the notice.
Residents should 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 February 1, 2018, to assist in establishing accurate assessments for the 2018 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 purchase or move to Loudoun County.
