How do I file an individual personal property return? What is the filing deadline?
The Commissioner of the Revenue has waived the requirement for filing of personal property returns for motor vehicles, trailers, semi-trailers, and boats per the amended Orange County ordinance 58-54, as of June 14, 2016. Pursuant to Code of Virginia sections 58.1-3518.1 and 58.1-3519, our office will assess such property based upon information received from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, or other public agency or private entity required by law to report the presence of such property within the county, and the tax shall be assessed and levied on such information. Businesses must still file a Business Personal Property form with our office by May 1st of the taxable year.
