Robert S. Wertz, Jr., Loudoun’s Commissioner of the Revenue, recently mailed notification of 2012 personal property filing requirements to all personal property owners currently on the tax rolls. This is the third year that property owners are being instructed to perform the annual vehicle reporting process online.
The 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 you own.
This week, residents will receive a notice in the mail with an account number that they’ll use to review and update their personal property tax records for the 2012 tax year. Instead of completing and mailing a form, changes should be reported online at www.loudoun.gov/vehicle-file.
Residents can report corrections, an address change, a vehicle sale or disposal, or unusually high mileage. The Commissioner asks that all changes be submitted by February 1, 2012, to assist in establishing accurate assessment information for the 2012 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.
For information or filing assistance visit www.loudoun.gov/cor or contact the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-777-0260. You may also write or stop by the Leesburg or Sterling office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
