Personal Property Taxes

Appomattox County does not prorate taxes. January 1 ownership of each year determines Tax Liability for the entire year. If you purchase a vehicle after January 1st, you will not pay taxes on that vehicle until the following year.

Per the Ordinance adopted by the Appomattox County Board of Supervisors on March 21, 2022, the Personal Property Tax Rate for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 was reduced from $3.35/$100 of assessed value to $3/$100 of assessed value. This reduction is effective retroactively on January 1, 2022. The purpose of this temporary reduction was to address the unprecedented increases in used vehicle values that have occurred since the tax rate was adopted.
