Why did my tax increase?

Your tax went up because the value of your vehicle increased in 2022 and the personal property tax relief percentage from the State decreased (due to both values and an increase in vehicles). The value increases for all makes and models are a direct result of short supply and high demand issues in the automotive industry across the state and country. Virginia Code requires that all personal property assessments use a recognized pricing guide** and York County uses the  clean loan value listed with no additions for condition, mileage or extra options.

**York County uses the ‘NADA Official Used Car Guide’ or ‘NADA Official Older Used Car Guide’ from J. D. Power using 100% of the ‘clean loan value’ for your vehicle.

Why am I not getting a rebate?

The rebate is calculated from the unexpected increase in car values and subsequent higher tax bills. Those car owners that saw the largest increases are getting the largest rebates. It is not a “universal” discount, it is a rebate of increased tax obligation from December 2021 to June 2022.  The calculation attempts to mirror the increase in your tax bill from December 2021 to June 2022.

Cars assessed after June 30, 2022 will not receive rebates.
