Notify both the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office immediately if you move or your vehicle has been sold, stolen, donated, or totaled. Virginia DMV requires notification within 30 days of a change of address or selling, trading, or junking a vehicle by completing the back portion of the vehicle registration form.
Once DMV has been notified, you are required to notify the Commissioner of the Revenue. You may notify the Commissioner of Revenue’s office by filling out the Personal Property Notice of Change (PDF). The City of Williamsburg does not prorate personal property tax. You will be responsible for the tax bill for the remainder of the year.
