Display of Vehicle Decals Eliminated
The display of vehicle decals was eliminated for residents of Botetourt County and the Towns of Buchanan, Fincastle and Troutville, effective January 1, 2008.
- Instead, a Vehicle Registration/License Fee (VRLF) is included on personal property tax statements based on vehicle ownership (situs) within Botetourt County on January 1 of the tax year.
- It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you keep the office of the Commissioner of the Revenue informed, within the required 30-day notification period, of any and all changes of the status of any of your vehicles.
- Failure to keep the Commissioner informed is not only contrary to County Code; it also will result in your personal property bill, and the new VRLF, being incorrect. It is the property ownerâ€™s responsibility to keep account information accurate and timely. You may keep the Commissioner informed of changes in your vehicle ownership by calling (540)Â 928-2050. Additions may be handled by mail or faxed to (540) 473-8289.
