Moved From Another State
Step 1 – Obtain your driver’s license; and title and register your vehicle with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). At that time, confirm your address AND garaged jurisdiction information is correct on the vehicle registration card DMV gives you.
Step 2 – Contact the Chesterfield County Commissioner of the Revenue to register your vehicle for personal property tax purposes. Vehicles are required by law to be reported to the Commissioner of the Revenue within 30 days of moving into Chesterfield, or transfer of title. In most cases, this is an automatic process between the DMV and the Commissioner; however, it is the taxpayer’s responsibility to ensure that their vehicle is registered with our office.
Note: If you purchased a vehicle (car, truck, or motorcycle) before Jan 1st of the tax year you will receive a prorated bill within a month, or so, for the time period you owned the vehicle during that tax year. For subsequent tax years you will receive a bill for the full tax year in April, due by June 5th of the corresponding tax year. For additional billing information please contact the Treasurer’s Office.
