ATTENTION: Vehicle Value Increases for Tax Year 2022
York County citizens may notice that their vehicle value has increased for 2022, resulting in a higher tax bill than in previous years. This is a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which created supply and demand issues for the automotive industry and has impacted locality vehicle values state-wide.
The 'Code of Virginia', Title 58.1-3515 states that the "tax day" in Virginia is January 1st annually. Title 58.1-3503 requires that all assessments be uniform and a recognized pricing guide be utilized.
In York County, vehicle assessments are ascertained from the 'NADA Official Used Car Guide' or 'NADA Official Older Used Car Guide'. Vehicles are assessed using 100% of the "clean loan value" listed in the guide for the specific year, make and model of each vehicle and no additions are made for condition, mileage or extra options.
