A new $33 registration fee for cars normally located in the county as of July 1, 2010 is included in the 2010 Fairfax County Personal Property Tax bills mailed out recently.
The fee, which rises to $38 for vehicles in excess of 4,000 pounds, was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in April and is expected to pull in approximately $27 million in additional revenue.
There is no county windshield decal to purchase or display. Fairfax County residents must register vehicles with the Department of Tax Administration that are normally parked in Fairfax County, even if the vehicle is registered in another state. Failure to locally register vehicles on time will result in penalties.
You can register your vehicle online or call 703-222-8234.
