PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX / VEHICLE REGISTRATION

Personal Property Taxes are due semi-annually on June 25th and December 5th.

Supplement Bills are due within 30 days of the Bill Date.  View the Calendar for current supplements and due dates.

The Personal Property tax rate for 2017 is $4.00 per $100.00 of assessed value. The rate is set annually by the York County Board of Supervisors in the month of April. The tax is assessed by the Commissioner of the Revenue, and collected by the Treasurer.

Prorated tax - If you buy or sell a vehicle during the year, the vehicle will be subject to a prorated tax. If you move into or out of York County, your vehicle may be subject to a prorated tax. The Commissioner of the Revenue must be notified of any status changes.

Personal Property Tax Relief - The amount of car tax relief (personal car, motorcycle, and pickup or panel truck having a registered gross weight of less than 7,501 pounds)  is based upon total dollars from the Commonwealth, divided by the total tax of all qualifying vehicles in the County of York.  York County Ordinance 05-28 allocates this relief to the first $20,000 of value.   2017 Tax Relief is at 55%.

Penalty is 2% if paid within the month due. The penalty will increase to $10 or 10% , whichever is greater, but not to exceed the amount of the tax on any remaining balance. The penalty is calculated separately for each taxable item

Interest is accrued at an annual rate of 10% until payment in full is received.
