If I am in the military, do I have to pay personal property taxes?
President Obama signed The Military Spouses Residency Relief Act, dated November 11, 2009. The exemption applies only to service members (and now spouse with the same residence or domicile, according to the amended exemption) who choose to claim residency in another state. The spouse exemption will begin with tax year January 1, 2010. Vehicle owners who claim Virginia as their domicile are not exempt from taxation by virtue of being members of the military. You must provide a current Leave and Earnings Statement.
