If you have moved out of the jurisdiction of the City of Charlottesville and registered your personal property with another jurisdiction, you can notify our office here.
You MUST report any change of address to DMV (1-804-497-7100 or dmvnow.com
)* within 30 days of the move. You also report the effective date of the move, if moving to another taxing jurisdiction in Virginia. If you have moved to another state, the effective date of the new title in your new state will be the ending date for taxation in Charlottesville.
In some cases, where the move took more than 30 days ago or the taxation status in the new jurisdiction is not established, the City of Charlottesville shall require documentation of taxation and/or registration in your new location before the City taxes can be adjusted.
Some types of items are billed for taxes based on January 1st status and will not affect tax billing until the following year. These items include: boats, boat motors & mobile homes.
In addition, some jurisdictions in Virginia tax only based on January 1st residence. In this case, the City will end taxation on the item at the end of the tax year during which the item moved to the new jurisdiction.
*If the item is a boat, report to DGIF(Department of Game & Inland Fisheries at 804-367-1000 or www.dgif.state.va.us
