Leesburg, Va. (April 18, 2015) – The Town of Leesburg recently mailed vehicle personal property tax bills for 2015 to Leesburg taxpayers. The due date for paying vehicle personal property taxes is Tuesday, May 5, 2015. Business tangible personal property tax bills will be mailed in mid-May with a due date of June 19, 2015.
In 2014, the Leesburg Town Council eliminated the pro-ration of personal property taxes on vehicles. The 2015 personal property tax bills are based on the assessed value of vehicles parked, stored or garaged in the Town as of January 1, 2015. Vehicles purchased or moved into the Town after January 1, 2015, will not be billed for personal property taxes until 2016. Taxpayers must display a Town of Leesburg vehicle decal within 30 days of vehicle purchase or move.
The Town of Leesburg offers a variety of payment options for personal property taxes that allow taxpayers to avoid long lines at Town Hall, including online, by telephone, via traditional mail and using the drop box at Town Hall.

A late penalty of 10% and interest at the rate of 10% per annum will be added to any unpaid balance beginning on May 5, 2015.
