Car Tax Reduction

The Personal Property Tax Relief Act provides reduced taxes to owners of qualified vehicles billed for 2006 and subsequent tax years.

The plan includes the following:

  • Tax reduction will apply to the first $20,000 value of a qualifying vehicle
  • A qualifying vehicle is defined as any passenger car, pickup, panel truck, or motorcycle used for non-business purposes
  • For qualifying vehicles, your personal property taxes will be affected as follows:


In the 2005 Appropriations Act, the General Assembly capped statewide Personal Property Tax Relief (PPTR) reimbursement at $950,000,000 for tax year 2006 and beyond. For tax year 2006 and subsequent years, Chesterfield County's PPTR reimbursement has been fixed at approximately $41,000,000.

    • Chesterfield County has allocated this PPTR reimbursement for tax year 2006 and subsequent years to provide tax relief as follows:
      • eliminated personal property tax on each qualifying vehicle with an assessed value of $1,000 or less
      • reduced personal property tax on qualifying vehicles on the first $20,000 of assessed value by the respective tax relief credit percentages by tax year:

2018 Tax Year - 54%
2017 Tax Year - 55%
2016 Tax Year - 56%
2015 Tax Year - 58%
2014 Tax Year - 60%
2013 Tax Year - 62%
2012 Tax Year - 63%
