Any taxpayer may submit an appeal to the Commissioner or the Revenue regarding the assessment of their taxable personal property including, but not limited to, airplanes, boats, mobile homes, motorcycles, motorized vehicles, trailers and trucks.
Personal property appeals must be filed within one year from the end of the tax year for which the assessment is made, or within one year from the date of the assessment, whichever is later, in accordance with VA Code § 58.1-3980.
Commissioner of the Revenue P.O. Box 124 Chesterfield, VA 23832-0908
All written requests must sufficiently include:
Taxpayer Information (name, address, phone number, account number, email address)
Description of personal property subject to the appeal
Reason for the appeal, e.g. dispute vehicle valuation or tax assessed
Tax periods covered by the challenged assessments
Grounds upon which the taxpayer relies
Any other facts relevant to the taxpayer's contention
Appealing your assessment does not guarantee a reduction nor does the filing of an appeal relieve the payment of the tax bill by the respective due date. If the assessment is later reduced as a result of an appeal and the original bill was paid, the county will issue a tax refund, provided all other taxes are current.
