Vehicle Services
Commissioner of the Revenue - Vehicle Purchase or Disposal

Vehicle Purchase

Step 1 – Title and register your vehicle, within 30 days of purchase, with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV.)  At that time confirm your address AND garaged jurisdiction information is correct on your vehicle registration card. 

Step 2 – Contact the Chesterfield County Commissioner of the Revenue to register your vehicle for personal property tax purposes.  Vehicles are required to be reported to the Chesterfield County Commissioner of the Revenue within 30 days from the purchased date (in most cases).

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, with payment due by June 5th of the corresponding tax year.  For additional billing information please contact the Treasurer’s Office.

Vehicle Disposal

Step 1 Contact DMV within 30 days of disposal, and provide them with the disposal date of your vehicle.

Step 2 Contact Commissioner of the Revenue  so we can note the disposal in our system.  Depending on when you disposed of the vehicle we may require additional proof, such as a bill of sale, to support your disposal date.  One of our associates will walk you through that process.

Note:  If the tax bill was paid for the year during which your vehicle was sold you may be entitled to a prorated refund.
