Property Tax Relief Act
Car Tax Relief
The Town of Vinton allocates car tax relief using the specific relief method as allowed by the 2005 General Assembly Amendment to the Personal Property Tax Relief Act of 1998
. The amount of the car tax relief credit is shown on your bill as a reduction to the total tax. Town Council
adopts an allocation percentage for tax relief each year at the time the personal property tax rate is set.
For More Information
- The tax relief is allocated so as to eliminate personal property taxation for qualifying personal-use vehicles valued at $1,000 or less
- Qualifying personal-use vehicles valued at $1,001 - $20,000 will be eligible for the allocation percentage for tax relief
- Qualifying personal-use vehicles valued at $20,001 or more will only receive the allocation percentage on the the first $20,000 of value
- All other vehicles that do not meet the definition of "qualifying" (i.e., business-use vehicles, farm-use vehicles, motor homes, etc.) will not be eligible for any form of tax relief under this program
