CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — In response to challenging economic conditions, Chesterfield County announced Monday that it is granting a grace period for payment of 2022 personal property taxes through July 29.
Personal property tax bills are due by June 6, but no penalty or interest will be charged if taxes are paid in full by the end of the grace period.
This applies only to taxes on personal property, such as cars, passenger trucks, motorcycles, boats and trailers. The due date for taxes on land and homes (real estate taxes) remains June 6.
“We recognize that, due to soaring inflation, Chesterfield households are facing higher than normal costs for such everyday purchases as groceries and gasoline. Similarly, external economic forces have driven up the price of used vehicles nationwide and resulted in increased personal property tax assessments for many of our residents,” said Chris Winslow, chair of the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors.
“We were mindful of these financial hardships when we adopted a plan to provide $30 million in immediate personal property tax relief for vehicle owners across Chesterfield,” Winslow added. “Even so, we know it will be difficult for some of our residents to pay their bills by the June 6 deadline. It’s absolutely the right thing to provide additional time without penalty for those who need it.”
Personal property tax payments can be made in a variety of ways:
