Leesburg, Va. (September 2, 2014) – Leesburg taxpayers will not be receiving personal property tax bills in their mailboxes in the coming weeks as they have in past years.
Earlier this year, the Leesburg Town Council amended the Town Code regarding Town personal property taxes, giving taxpayers a “tax holiday” for the 2014 tax year by moving the due date for personal property taxes from October 5th to May 5th of each year. The next personal property tax bills will be mailed to taxpayers in April 2015 and will be due on May 5, 2015.
In addition, beginning with the 2015 tax year, the Town will no longer pro-rate personal property taxes on automobiles, motorcycles, RVs, other motor vehicles and trailers. The 2015 tax bills will be based on the assessed value of personal property located in the Town of Leesburg as of January 1, 2015.
The changes in Leesburg’s personal property taxes do not affect the requirement to register a new vehicle with Loudoun County and the Town, and to obtain a Town decal, within 30 days of acquiring a new vehicle.
