Arlington Personal Property Tax Bills Arrive
My personal property tax (a.k.a. car tax) bill arrived in my mailbox this week. Fortunately since The Green Miles' sweet ride is assessed at less than $3,000, I only owe the decal fee of $24. This year's decal features a photo of the Air Force Memorial taken by Wakefield High School's Danielle Day.
A decade's worth of Virginia governors and legislators have tried to figure out how to get rid of the unpopular car tax, but since they don't want to institute new taxes either, it's hard to balance the budget without it. Hence, the current convoluted system of car tax "relief."
If you're new to Arlington, make sure you contact the Commissoner of Revenue to find out if you owe any tax and how to get the decal. You'll get ticketed if your car is registered in Arlington and you don't have a decal on your windshield.
